Tribalism or Strategy: Nana Addo's Endorsement of Future Flag Bearers Causes Stir

After the fourth republic, the New Patriotic Party has never had a flag bearer from the Northern side of the country, Ghana. Most of them were chosen as running mates instead.

The speech of President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo at the Manhyia Palace has caused massive stir since he mentioned some of the executive of the party who he is endorsing to replace him after his time is due.

Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia's name wasn't mentioned, although he is one of the few people Ghanaians have pointed out to be a fit for the President's seat in future.

Most Ghanaians have concluded that the New Patriotic Party is becoming a bit selective when it comes to selecting flag bearers from the Northern part of Ghana.

Some of them think it is a strategy of the party.

The party hasn't officially selected its leader for the next election yet but President Nana Addo's endorsement at Manhyia Palace yesterday has brought many discussions to board.
