Not long ago, former President John Agyekum Kufuor was in the news for allegedly endorsing the vice president of Ghana as the flagbearer for the upcoming presidential primaries of the ruling New Patriotic Party.
The news broke out after the vice president visited the former president at his residence as part of the Father’s Day celebration. However, former president Kufour has refuted all claims with a statement saying:
“In the upcoming NPP Flagbearership race, in order to achieve party unity and sustain it thereafter for victory of the party in the 2024 elections, what President Kufuor expects from the party and political hierarchies are fair and un-engineered systems and processes that would lead to a fair selection of our next NPP flagbearer.
“This should be devoid of coercion and machinations so that the eventual selected nominee, coming out of the uncompromised freewill of the voting delegates, can easily command the support and respect of all party faithfuls, and indeed, other Ghanaians sympathetic to our cause towards ‘breaking the eight’,” the statement said
