Kennedy Agyapong has wondered why some members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) continue to label the party as an Akan party.
Speaking on Oman FM, he wondered why the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) which has never chosen an Ashanti as flagbearer before not label itself as non-Akan.
“People say NPP is an Akan party, its rubbish. Has NDC ever picked an Ashanti as presidential candidate? When did they pick an Ashanti as vice president? Why should we run away from the truth?
“We should be bold to criticize anyone who tags the NPP as an Akan party. Has the NDC ever picked an Ashanti. We will say it and it will come to pass. Tell me when NDC picked an Ashanti as presidential candidate. Why do we always tag ourselves as Akan party. It won’t help the party.
“NDC have the courage to pick anyone. They also choose either Northerner or Voltarian why don’t we also say that it’s a party for Northerners or Voltarians,” he slammed.
