Conduct yourself well to get nod to lead NPP in Election 2024 – Asantehene
The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has advised Francis Addai-Nimo, a New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer aspirant to conduct himself well to get the nod to lead the party in the 2024 general election.
“This is not your first time contesting as aspirant so you must conduct yourself well just as you have done to win the hearts of your delegates to vote for you in the primary, show to them what you stand for and can do when given the nod as flagbearer,” he stressed.
The Asantehene gave the advice when Mr Addai-Nimopaid a courtesy call on him at the Manhyia Palace, on Wednesday, to ask for his blessings as he began his campaign tour to get the nod to lead the NPP in the 2024 elections.
He asked Mr Addai-Nimo to conduct a clean campaign ahead of the upcoming internal elections of the party and admonished the NPP to choose a candidate that would be accepted by the citizenry since they were looking for someone who they could trust to seek their welfare and well-being.
Emphasising the importance to elect a candidate whose credibility could be attested to by all Ghanaians, the Asantehene noted that he would urge the NPP to elect a person who would be accepted by all citizens and whose credibility was acceptable to them.
Mr Addai-Nimo said he was delighted to receive the blessings from Otumfuo Osei Tutu as he mentioned to commence an effective and efficient campaign in Ashanti to seek the endorsement of delegates.
He assured the Asantehene of untainted credibility, trust and was focused to lead the NPP to win the upcoming 2024 elections as flag bearer, adding that, “I appeal to NPP delegates, to look up to me to lead the party to win the 2024 polls because in me lies the vision to make Ghana work again with implementation of transformational and job creating policies, programmes and social interventions for the betterment of the citizenry.
“The NPP requires a fresh face who has not served in the current Akufo-Addo-led administration, who is spotless, unite members and supporters in preparation for the elections because the records prove that, if you have a candidate who has been part of the current government, you are not likely to win the elections,” Mr Addai-Nimo cautioned.
