The 1st Vice Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), F. F Anto, has described as “rubbish” the recent tribal comments made by Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu on who leads the NPP as a presidential candidate going into the 2024 general elections.

Chairman F. F Anto who hails from the Ashanti Region chastised the Suame MP in a meeting with party grassroots on Wednesday, April 8, 2024, in Bolgatanga in the Upper East region.

The meeting, which recorded almost all the NPP national executives, forms part of the ‘thank you’ tour being embarked upon by the executives across the country.

Mr. Anto’s condemnation comes in as the latest from party bigwigs who have reacted to the Majority Leader’s view that it will be unwise to field another Akan presidential candidate after Prof. Adu Boahen, J. A Kufuor and Nana Akufo-Addo.

Addressing the gathering of party faithful, Mr. Anto said the “Majority Leader should know better”.

He added that “such unguided comments are divisive” and entreated party leaders to be circumspect in their commentary.


Reacting to the statement by Mr. Anto, the party Chairman, Freddie Blay, together with other national executives present including the General Secretary, John Boadu, the National Organiser, Sammi Awuku, took the opportunity to condemn the comments of the Majority Leader by asking the party men and women to disregard such comments.

It will be recalled that Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, in a recent interview indicated that after having filed three Akans as presidential candidates for the New Patriotic Party, it would be unwise for the NPP to represent another Akan as flag bearer for election 2024.

According to the Majority Leader, the purpose of his view is to deal with the “Akanistic” tag being propagated by the opposition NDC.
