The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has given the strongest of warnings to its members who have started campaigning for the flagbearership of the party ahead of the 2024 presidential elections.

The party says the internal struggle has started too early and prematurely, cautioning that the party will not allow the 2007 experience of the 17 aspirants to happen again.

Speaking to the development on Asempa FM's Ekosi Sen, the Communication Director of the party, Yaw Buabeng Asamoah explained that had the party been hard on its rules in 2007, they party would not have been subjected to the 'embarrassment' it suffered then.

He stated that the party will not sit by and allow that to repeat itself.

"What happened in 2007, if the party had stood it's grounds, what happened would not have happened.

"We will not allow people to do what they like. Even the government that they want to replace is currently being formed so where the rush?" he asked.

According to him, it is too early for such interests to be declared now, adding the the party wants all those who have interest to order their followers to stop the early campaign, if only their claim of being innocent of the development is true.

"We know those who want to contest. They should not hide behind social media and say they are not aware of what's happening. It is not yet time. They should relax and wait for the right time," he told host of the show, Philip Osei Bonsu.

He revealed that he was shocked to have seen one of the campaign photos in Accra, adding that there is the need for the party to act fast.

"When I saw one of such posters in town, I was shocked and could not believe my eyes. I have seen some and if we should allow it to fester, it will have fire consequences on the party and the government," he said.

Some notable names that have popped up to be leaving their boots for the flagbearership include the Vice President, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumiah, Minister of Trade and Industry, Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanteng, Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, and Minister for Agriculture, Dr. Afriyie Akoto Osei.
