National Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr Freddie Blay has told all members of the party to support President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to deliver on his mandate for the next four years.
He has urged all persons within the party who have an ambition of leading the party as flabgearer into the next major elections to desist from campaigning at the moment since the time is not due for such activities.
Mr Blay told TV3’s Dzifa Bampoe in an exclusive interview that such activities at the moment will only distract the president’s attention.
His comments come on the heels of alleged campaign posters of Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen which are flooding the social media space trying to market them ahead of the party’s internal election to pick a flagbearer.
The Vice President has however denied embarking on any such activities.
Mr Blay said “The president has four-year mandate, we don’t want him to be distracted.
“What is destructive about it is that, invariably some individuals may even end up criticizing each other within the party and even criticize the president.
“This will be destructive. Infighting, factionalism will distract us from doing what we are supposed to do.
“The president may have to settle disputes. Definitely, there will be time for people to file their papers.”
