President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo has disclosed that he isn’t backing any NPP flagbearer hopeful like rumours has it.
Speaking on Pure FM as part of his tour in the Ashanti Region he noted that he is only in the position to throw his weight behind whoever the party selects as its next flagbearer and nothing more.
”My duty is to hold the balance, to make sure that there is a level playing field for all inside our party. The decision has to be the decision of the party, my thing is that whoever the party elects as the flagbearer for 2024, that person is who I will support and God willing, If I have strength campaign for the person to become President”, he stated while speaking on Pure FM.
He added that John Evans Atta Mills and John Mahama’s governments took Ghana backwards noting that had the NPP government continued after former President John Agyekum Kuffour Ghana would have achieved its desired results.
”I always say our situation in Ghana, if the NPP party had continued after President Kuffour, maybe Ghana would have realised the desired changes but we didn’t have the opportunity to continue”.
”We continued the eight-year cycle. Mills and Mahama came as far as I am concerned, we went backwards again and I have a fear that may happen again if we don’t win 2024 and that has given birth to the slogan break the eight”. he stated.
