The Bortianor-Ngleshie-Amanfro Member of Parliament (MP), Sylvester Matthew Tetteh, has expressed dissatisfaction with the way some members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) are forcing Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s presidential campaign on the party’s voting station officials. He has urged the MPs to stop the campaign, insisting that it will not help the party.

The MP believes that forcing a particular candidate on the delegates will create division within the party. According to him, the grassroots and delegates should stand united behind the ideal presidential candidate who has a message of hope for the unemployed youth.

Sylvester Matthew Tetteh has emphasized that anyone who is a true member of the NPP and interested in contesting should be allowed to do so. This way, the party will have a level playing field for all the contestants to present their ideas and be judged based on their merits.

It is essential to note that the 2024 presidential elections are crucial for the NPP. The party will be seeking to retain power after serving two terms in office. The candidate who emerges as the party’s flagbearer will play a vital role in determining the party’s fortunes in the next election.

For the most part, the NPP is known for its internal democracy, which allows for a free and fair contest during party primaries. It is, therefore, essential that the MPs allow the process to take its course and not attempt to influence it in any way.

The NPP needs a candidate who can unite the party and appeal to the electorate. The candidate must have a message that resonates with Ghanaians and a clear plan for addressing the country’s challenges. It is only through a transparent and fair contest that the party can select the best candidate to lead them in the 2024 elections.

In conclusion, the NPP MPs should respect the party’s internal democracy and allow the delegates to decide who the ideal candidate for the party is. They should desist from putting pressure on the voting station officials to endorse a particular candidate. The NPP needs a united front to retain power in the 2024 elections, and this can only be achieved by allowing for a free and fair contest during the primaries.
