This is why NAPO is the wrong person to partner Bawumia – NPP MP Cries

Asante Akim North MP for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has declared that Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh (NAPO), his colleague MP for Manhyia South, who was allegedly selected as the party’s running mate by the flagbearer, is the incorrect pick.

Andy Kwame Appiah-Kubi believes NAPO is unable to provide the party with the votes it needs to win the general elections in 2024.

In an interview with JoyNews on Thursday, June 27, 2024, the MP stated that NAPO is not the candidate he prefers because the latter cannot campaign alongside MPs in place of the party’s flagbearer, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

“Well, I wouldn’t speak for the majority because we have not been consulted as a caucus for us to state our position. But me, Appiah-Kubi, you can solicit my view on that. If it were up to me to choose, I wouldn’t choose him.

“It’s not my preference. Appiah-Kubi is saying that he is not my preference. But that doesn’t mean that he is not qualified. If there was an opportunity like that, I would express a candidate, however acceptable otherwise, to our presidential candidate. I would want someone who will be open with the people on the ground, who will be able to deliver the votes, and who would also submit to the presidency, and who will also be important in bringing parliament closer to the executive.

He said, “I would probably select someone who is more acceptable to the generals going to war, the parliamentarians. We should find someone who, if the presidential candidate is not there, will hold the hand of a member of parliament and go and conduct a campaign in that member of parliament’s constituency. I don’t see that happening in this equation. He cannot hold my hand. So why would I say that I prefer him? He cannot hold my hand.”
