'Another bombshell?' Northerners will soon know their true status in NPP in 2024 (Opinion)

Please share your thoughts on the question asked below.

The recent comment made by the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Government Business, Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu on NPP's flagbearership brouhaha has not gone down with others in the party and also those who are nurturing the ambitions of becoming flagbearer of the party in 2024. Over the week, Suame lawmaker Honorable Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu entreated the party to elect a non Akan as its flagbearer in the next national polls.

According to the majority leader, a non Akan leading the party in 2024 will help change the fortunes of the party as they look to break the eight. So many members of the party have lambasted him for making such comments at this stage. Boakye Agyarko criticized the majority leader by using some unprintable words for the highly experienced politician.

The Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Nana Obiri Boahen also clashed with Osei Kyei-Mensah on his scathing and immature comment. Corresponding to Obiri Boahen, party delegates will elect a candidate who can cruise them to victory in 2024 and not on ethnic lines or background.

A founding member of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe also reacting to Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu's comment said he isn't surprised with the lawmaker because he (Kyei-Mensah Bonsu) has proven on numerous occasions that he is undemocratic politician. He also called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to put the man to order for such disuniting comment.

Ben Ephson is the latest person to comment on the non Akan comment made by Kyei Mensah Bonsu. Ben Ephson has opined that supporters of the party at the Northern sector are expecting Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to be made the next flagbearer of the NPP after Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. According to Mr. Ephson, the Northerners are watching all the happenings in the party and they would come to realize that they are only for votes should the party snub Bawumia in 2024.

He added that the Northerners will feel betrayed and also think that they are only needed for votes should they choose a flagbearer other than Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia. Finally, he opined that Northerners will know their real status in NPP in 2024.

Dear cherished reader, what do you make of this assertion made by Ben Ephson?
