Some aggrieved members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) have avowed their intention to show the big wigs of the party the exit come 2024.
These are persons who are disappointed with the outcome of the regional executives elections, saying the process was unfair.
Speaking with Onuaonline.com, the group claim the process was engineered to favour some party big wigs whose records have nothing positive to show for the elephant fraternity.
These are a group of identifiable people who paid a solidarity visit to candidate Odeneho Kwaku Appiah in his home on Monday, May 30, saying people have enthusiastically and with relentless vigor, contributed to the growth and development of the party in the region, ‘only for one person to hijack the party’.
‘’We believe without a doubt that the will of the people has been subverted and this election was conducted in the interest of some big men, but we’ll show them the exit in 2024.’’
Meanwhile, some members of the public have also expressed disappointment with turn out of events over the weekend.
Shortly after the exercise, a section of the public expressed displeasure in the process and eventual outcome of the election held on Saturday, May 28, 2022.
Some are of the belief that the exercise was designed to favour the acclaimed winner who they say has outlived his relevance in the body politics of the region.
Others claim the winner, Bernard Antwi Bosiako (Chairman Wontumi) did not show capacity for the office of the chairman for which he was elected and is not well disposed to protect the interest of the region at large.
‘’We came all the way to support the party though some of us don’t bear party cards… from what we’ve witnessed here, it will be very difficult for the party to break the 8. Honestly what the NPP needs now is a change in leadership. We have a choice from now to 2024 to rethink our decision. The ‘yentie obia’ attitude is becoming one too many. As you can see, the whole region is silent, Kumasi is silent, and that’s the first sign of disappointment in the hearts of many, they said.
Meanwhile, some members of the 4 aspirants’ campaign team who spoke off record said, ‘’In due course, our grievances and all other necessary steps would be made formal to the party.’’
