Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is entreating the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to put the interest of the nation above their partisanship when electing a flagbearer.

He says the party should make a choice competent enough to serve as President.

NPP flagbearer aspirant, Francis Addai-Nimoh, in the company of his campaign team and supporters, paid a courtesy call on the Asantehene at the Manhyia Palace.

The visit was to make clear his intention of contesting NPP’s flagbearership.

The Asantehene says though the election is internal, it has an impact on the country as a whole.

He wants aspirants to, therefore, foster peace by running clean campaigns devoid of insults.

“I am advising you to do a clean campaign ahead of the primaries,” he said.

He also urged the NPP delegates to choose a candidate that would be accepted by the mass Ghanaians.

The former Member of Parliament for the Mampong Constituency made his first attempt in NPP’s flagbearer race in 2014.

He came third among seven contestants in the primaries.

Mr. Addai-Nimoh was, however, out of the government formed after the party won elections in 2016.

For the reason, he believes his candidature is needed to win the NPP power in 2024.

He appealed to party delegates to vote for a new candidate to head the party in order to break the eight.

According to him, the party requires a fresh face who has not served in the present administration, who is spotless , and who can bring the party together in preparation for the 2024 general elections.
