Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, the majority leader in Parliament, has confirmed that it would be unwise for the New Patriotic Party, which has been branded a “Akan” party, to offer another “Akan” after Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-tenure. Addo’s.

Having another ‘Akan’ as the party’s flagbearer, he believes, would lend credence to and validate the claim that the NPP is a ‘Akan party that has little regard for other ethnic groups in the world.

He said this while speaking on Joy News’ “The Probe” in Accra, which was monitored by MyNewsGh.com. As a result, Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu has agreed to withdraw from the race for the party’s flagbearership, despite the fact that he qualifies.

“I know I have the competence inwardly, but is it prudent for me to run too soon after two Akans; Kufuor was president, Akufo-Addo is from the Eastern Region, and a third Akan is on the way? After some thought, I believe it does not bode well for a group that has been accused of being too Akanistic. However, not everybody shares my opinion. And that, he said, is the essence of democracy.

“Well, I said these are early days, in the future when I have to stick out my neck, I will stick out my neck,” the Majority leader said when asked if he would support the Vice President of Ghana if he runs for the party’s flagbearership despite the fact that he is not a ‘Akan.’

When asked if he would help the Vice President of Ghana if he ran for the party’s flagbearership despite the fact that he is not a “Akan,” the Majority leader said, “Well, I said these are early days, and in the future when I have to stick out my neck, I will stick out my neck.”

The race to succeed Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo after he completes his second term as President continues, with many NPP representatives expressing their support for their party’s nominee.

This has resulted in some infighting, particularly in the exchange of words between followers of these factions of the group, particularly on social media.

The party’s leadership, on the other hand, has urged the party’s members to remain calm and concentrate on providing a transformed Ghana to the people.
