The NPP was born from the UP tradition which is founded on core values of freedom and the liberation of the private energies of citizens to build a prosperous nation.
There is nothing like Danquah-Busiah-Dombo tradition! It is only a symbolic slogan and must never be allowed to gain any roots in our party. Particularly so when people are using that as a magic formula to decide who is entitled to inherit who.
When the late Sir John proclaimed that since 1992, Kuffour from Busia has become President, Akufo Addo from Danquah has become President and so it is left with Dombo and therefore it is the time of Dr Bawumia, that was the beginning of this ethnio-partisan insanity in NPP. His statement should have been condemned but we all sat aloof and allowed it to gain some importance.
Today, Mr Hopeson Adoye has created another strain of that insanity to suggest that the flagbearer and running mate positions are reserved for some parts of Ghana. What was wrong then cannot be right now!
The NPP will select our next flagbearer based on who best represent our tradition and strategically placed to help us win 2024,, who can unite our party and has the traits that when given power he will not be vindictive and continue to hold the party together, who is most competent to govern and leave a legacy that the party can win subsequent elections and so on.
These must be the real acid test and not this so called danquah-busiah-dombo folktale.
