‘Stop Creating Unhealthy Rivalry Among Candiates’

George Ayisi BoatengMr George Ayisi Boateng, a founding member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti Region, has cautioned members of his party against pitting the candidates in the flagbearership primary against one another.

He said such a behaviour could have serious repercussions not only on the party’s chances of winning the 2016 general elections but also undermine relationships among party members and even divide families.

In a statement issued in Kumasi at the weekend, in reaction to recent developments relating to the campaign for the October 18 primary, Mr Ayisi Boateng called for a halt to unwarranted statements, especially in the media.

Mr Ayisi Boateng, who is also a member of the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s campaign team in the Ashanti Region, warned against the use of the name of Nana Addo in campaigns that could divide the NPP.

Party members, he advised, should always guard their utterances and act responsibly to uphold the unity and strength of the party to be able to recapture power in the 2016 general elections.

Messrs Akufo-Addo, Alan Kyerematen and Francis Addai-Nimo are contesting to lead the party in the 2016 presidential election.
