A senior Political Science lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Dr Samuel Adu Gyamfi has described the election of the current national officers of the ruling NPP, as an internal referendum which sought to reject the leadership of President Akufo-Addo.
He says, the results from the election puts trade minister, Akan Kwadwo Kyeremanteng ahead of vice president Bawumia in the upcoming flagbearer race.
“Critically they’ve shown that they need a change and I’m thinking the change means that if today they’re going to do a referendum on their own president as to whether he should continue or discontinue for another person to come, it would go against the sitting president.”
“The democracy we are practicing is bequeathing to us people who want to see a developmental democracy. And so if a government comes to power and that government is not performing, we expect that if elections and politics is science, the people will vote against that government. And for that matter the people within the party, card bearing members would equally be disgusted by the performance of the party.”
Dr Adu Gyamfi noted the development is an indication that even though they can’t wash their dirty linen in public, they’re utterly disgusted with the turn of events in the country.
“Even though they’ll not come out to wash their dirty linen, if they do internal referendum, they will vote agaisnt the president and the Vice president,” he noted.
