DESPERATE BAWUMIA FLOUTS NEC ORDERS,Digging Own Grave.
We the Loyal Youth of Ashanti humbly wish to draw the attention of the Leadership of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to deal with those who had ambition to contest to lead the party come 2024 to desist from early campaign activities and support President Akufo ADDO to fulfill his promises.
Just after this warning, the Vice President, Dr. Mahammudu Bawumia flouted the order and went ahead to paste his campaign posters across the country.
The General Secretary of the party, Mr. John Boadu among other party stalwarts called the Vice President and his followers to order but to no avail.
On 2nd April 2021, the Vice President sent a delegation from Accra led by Hon Charles Kissi who happens to be the DCE for Adansi North District (Fomena) to meet some MMDCEs in the Ashanti Region.
This meeting was held between 11:00 am to 12 o’clock pm at closed door,, at the Regional Coordinating Council (Kumasi- Danyame).
At the meeting, the delegation from the Vice President asked all MMDCEs available to support the Presidential ambition of Dr Mahamadu Bawumia to secure their office as MMDCEs or risk losing their jobs if they fail to support the agenda.
The Vice President through the V20 group Coordinator for Offinso North, one Asantewaa is organizing a program on the 24th April 2021 to help market the Vice President in the two Offinso Constituencies.
The Vice President has on countless occasions flouted the directive by the Party.
The Loyal Youth of Ashanti will like to ask the stakeholders if the party, how can a person who wants to lead the party to decide to show a gross disrespect to the party’s leadership, the constitution, and its people?
The attempt by desperate Bawumia to impose MMDCEs on the party and various districts and municipalities won’t only incur the wrath of the people but will also be a disastrous scheme for the party since about 70% of the MMDCEs are not the choice of the people.
We want state it emphatically it’s obvious that, they said desperate vice President trying all evil means to succeed the current president of the republic Nana Akufo Addo whiles he is alive.
Mr. Vice President thinks about our party and put your interest aside.
If we fail the economy, and you are made the Flagbearer of the party it doesn’t make you an automatic winner rather we might lose the 2024 elections.
We, therefore, call on Dr. Bawumia to focus on the job given and also call his supporters to order.
We believe when the time is due to the good people of the elephant party will decide.
