An NPP group calling itself North for Alan 2024 has questioned the fairness of the leadership of the party in the handling of its directives on party members to stop campaigning for flagbearer aspirants, describing it as selective application of party rules.

 The group questioned why the leadership of the party are quiet on the declaration of support for Vice President Bawumia’s  Flagbearership bid by some leading members of the NPP across the country, despite a ban on all campaign activities by the aspirants and Party members.

“Since the announcement, a number of high ranking members of the Party have openly declared support for the Vice President who, together with his supporters, have left nobody in doubt that he is interested in contesting the NPP Flagbearership.  Notable among these party officials are a Deputy General Secretary of the party, Mr Obiri Boahen, the Northern Regional Executives led by chairman Samba, the first Vice regional chairman of Ashanti, Mr. Kwabena Nsenkyire, the Member of Parliament for Karaga Hon Amin Anta, the Member of parliament for Tolon Hon Habib Iddrisu and Hon Farouk Mahama, MP for Yendi and some others.” the group said.

Last year, the General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu banned party officials from declaring public support for any aspirant ahead of the official opening of nominations.

He also banned the public display of paraphernalia promoting or advertising any aspirant ahead of the opening of nominations.

However, North for Alan 2024 claim the Northern Regional and National Executives of the party are allowing subtle campaigns for the Vice President while treating party members who show support and campaign for Alan Kyerematen like “criminals who have been chased out of the party”.

Addressing a news conference in Tamale on Wednesday, Communications Director of the group, Nurudeen Achinfo Shamsudeen called for a level paying ground for all aspirants.

“If some people have the right to declare support for the Vice President and other aspirants, then we who believe that the leadership of Hon Alan John Kyerematen also have an equal right to express our preference without any fear.”

He said the “selective application of party rules” could derail efforts of the party to break the eight.

“It is crystal clear the overwhelming masses of the NPP is poised and eagerly ready to give the mandate of this party to Hon Alan Kyerematen and Insha Allah, NOTHING can stop that.” the Communication Director of the group added.
