Former NPP MP Outlines His Expectations Of A Presidential Candidate For The NPP

The former member of parliament for Obuasi East constituency Honorable Edward Ennin has outlined his expectations of a presidential candidate for the NPP.

In an interview on Okay FM this morning, the former law maker revealed that he will not vote for anyone to become the flag bearer of the party because the person is popularly or rich. According to him, he will check the person's contribution when the party was being formed in 1992. He also added that he will check the person's current contribution to the party and how such contribution is affecting the party.

"Firstly, i will check whether he was part of the individuals who contributed when the party was being formed in 1992. I will also check his role as a member of party from 1992 till date. Aside these, I will check whether the roles played had a positive impact on the party or it had a negative impact. I will also check the struggles the person went through to put the party in shape. I will also check the steps the party members usually follow to elect their leaders" he stated.

After making these statements, he also made it clear that the party does not have any custom they follow to elect their leaders. He made it clear that there is nothing like Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition where flag bearers must be selected using that line. He believes that hard work and commitment to the party will cause for their victory.

"There is nothing like Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition. I have never heard it before since 1992. It is usually given to someone who has served well in the party and not any tradition" he said

The New Patriotic Party will soon go to the polls and elect their flag bearer. Names such as Kennedy Agyapong, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Afriyie Akoto and Alan Kyeremanten have popped us persons who will surely contest for such position.

However, some members in the party believe that Alan Kyeremanten is the person who must be given such position because the party has a tradition. This comment was made by Hopeson Adorye and believes that the NPP must go by that tradition and vote for Alan Kyeremanten.

In your opinion, tell us who you think will be best for the NPP.
