Napo’s Body Language Resembles A Kejetia Market Preacher Than A Running Mate – Manasseh Azure Awuni



The unveiling of Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, also known as Napo, as the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) running mate has been met with mixed reactions, notably drawing sharp criticism from prominent investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni. In a series of posts on social media, Awuni took aim at Dr. Opoku Prempeh’s demeanor and remarks during the ceremony, likening his presentation style to that of a “Kejetia Market Preacher” rather than a vice-presidential candidate.

Awuni’s critique focused on what he perceived as unprofessional body language and delivery by Dr. Opoku Prempeh, which he argued detracted from the gravitas expected of someone in his position. “Napo’s body language was more fitting for a kejetia market preacher than a running mate of a major political party,” Awuni remarked, reflecting a sentiment of disappointment shared by some observers.

Adding to the controversy, Dr. Opoku Prempeh has faced significant backlash for comments he made about Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. During his speech, Napo’s remarks were perceived by many as dismissive of Nkrumah’s legacy, triggering widespread criticism from various quarters, including historians, political analysts, and the general public.His comments have ignited a firestorm of reactions on social media and among the general public, particularly due to his dismissive reference to Ghana’s first President, Kwame Nkrumah, as “That Your Nkrumah.”

Manasseh Azure Awuni’s comments have amplified the scrutiny on Dr. Opoku Prempeh, placing him under intense public and media examination. The investigative journalist, known for his fearless exposés and critical commentary, did not hold back in his assessment, suggesting that Napo’s approach was unbecoming of someone vying for the second highest office in the land.

Dr. Opoku Prempeh’s contentious speech and the subsequent reactions underscore the highly charged political atmosphere as Ghana heads toward the 2024 elections. The NPP, which has positioned itself as the party of progress and continuity, now faces the challenge of managing the fallout from these criticisms while maintaining the momentum of their campaign.

As the NPP rallies behind their candidates, the party will need to address these controversies and reaffirm Dr. Opoku Prempeh’s qualifications and vision for the future. The coming days will likely see intensified efforts by NPP strategists to mitigate any negative impact and to better align their campaign messaging with the expectations of the electorate.

Meanwhile, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is expected to leverage this moment to their advantage, further scrutinizing the NPP’s choices and strategies as part of their campaign efforts.
