The Member of Parliament for Bawku Central Constituency, Mahama Ayariga has revealed that the late former Vice-president Aliu Mahama expressed interest in leading the NPP as their flag bearer, but he was denied in a very miserable manner.
The Bawku MP made this statement on 'GH TODAY' on GHONE television when he was talking about ethnicity and leadership in the NPP.
According to him, the NPP as a party has always been bringing a slate in which there are a southern candidate and a northern running mate who have stuck with their people.
"We've seen a situation where your northern running mate (Aliu Mahama) expressed interest in leading and was denied in a very miserable manner.
You have another opportunity where you've run consecutively with a northern running mate who has served as a Vice-president the same way Aliu Mahama served. The discussion now is that; will you now give this northern man an opportunity to lead the party?" - he said
He concluded by adding that; the underlying factor that they should be considering is how to put together a winnable slate.
