The King of Dagbon, Ya-Na Abubakari, has admonished a New Patriotic Patriotic (NPP) flagbearer aspirant, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong, to desist from utterances that incite hatred against people of northern extraction.
The Ya-Na bemoaned such conduct by politicians which seeks to portray Northerners as second-class citizens.
The Ya-Na was speaking when the flagbearer hopeful paid a courtesy call on him at the Gbewaa Palace to inform him of his presence in Dagbon.
According to the Ya-Na, he has heard the aspirant say that a win for Bawumia will mean the 2024 elections would be about Northerners.
He said, “I have heard you ask why the 2024 elections should be about Northerners. It was an unfortunate comment. I urge you to desist from such comments and campaign on issues. You must be prepared to support whoever the party will elect.”
On his part, Hon. Agyapong promised to run a clean campaign devoid of tribalism.
“In 2020, I promised the Ya-Na a V8 Landcruiser. Unfortunately, I’ve not been able to deliver that. I’m here today to deliver a pickup to the Ya-Na to fulfil the promise I made to him during the 2020 elections,” he added.
The flagbearer aspirant is in the region to solicit the support of party delegates ahead of the crucial November 4 presidential primaries of the NPP.
