NPP Running Mate: Ashanti NPP youth organizers betrays NAPO

Some Ashanti Regional Youth Organisers fo the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have denied endorsing Energy Minister, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh as a potential running mate for the party.

They described such claims as misrepresentation of the broader sentiments within the region.

In a statement, the Youth Organisers emphasized the importance of democratic processes within the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

According to Article 12 (b) of the NPP’s Constitution, the selection of the vice-presidential candidate lies within the prerogative of the presidential candidate, in consultation with the National Council.

Based on this backdrop, the Youth Organisers said they have no power to exert undue influence on such decisions, stressing the need for democratic principles to prevail.

Below is the press statement

We have not endorsed Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh as running mate – Ashanti Youth Organisers

We wish to address the recent press statement regarding alleged widespread support for Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh for the position of running mate. It’s important to clarify that this assertion does not accurately represent the sentiments of the majority of youth organisers in the Ashanti Region. The purported endorsement merely reflects the views of a few individuals and does not speak on behalf of the broader Youth Organisers or their Constituency.

Article 12 (b) of the Constitution of the New Patriotic Party provides that, the selection of the vice-presidential candidate rests with the Presidential Candidate, in consultation with the National Council of the party. It is not within the mandate of youth organisers to exert pressure, whether directly or indirectly, on the Presidential Candidate regarding the choice of a running mate. Such actions would constitute undue influence and run counter to the democratic principles of our party.

To ensure maximum support from party members and the Ghanaian populace, it is paramount for our party’s leadership to consider a candidate who embodies humility, commands respect across all sectors, possesses national appeal, and is widely liked by the majority of Ghanaians before finalising the choice of a vice-presidential candidate.

We urge all members of our party to extend their support and prayers to the presidential candidate through prayers and encouragement as they deliberate on selecting a suitable vice-presidential candidate. Let us collectively uphold the democratic values of our party and strive towards unity in preparation for the upcoming elections.
