Power Struggle Begins In NPP As Joe Ghartey Announces His Intention To Lead The Party After Akufo-Addo

Published

on


As anticipated by many, internal power struggle in the ruling New Patriotic is beginning to take center stage as MP for Essikado Ketan, and a leading member of the party, Joe Ghartey announces his intention to lead the party after Akufo-Addo.

With President Akufo-Addo having been elected for a second term, he becomes ineligible to lead the party again, hence the competition to replace him gets even hotter.

Many would have thought that Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia would be given a free pass to lead the party after his boss, considering the extensive work he has done with his wife to turn the fortunes of the NPP around, especially in the Northern regions.

However, Minister of Trade and Industry, Allan Kyeremateng, who has thrice contested President Akufo-Addo is still around, together with a host of several ambitious party faithfuls.

As the dust is yet to settle on the Party’s victory in the 2020 elections, it is Mr Joe Ghartey who has given the clearest indication yet that he will contest to lead the party.

In conversation with Pure FM, the MP said, “Chief there’s only one truth, I contested for the last election and I came third, Akufo-Addo came first and Kyeremanteng came second and I was third. 2024 if God permits I will stand for the President of Ghana,” he said while reacting to a report that ranked his popularity in the New Patriotic Party”.

New Patriotic Party (NPP) stalwart, Gabby Otchere Darko has said that anyone would expect National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama to be in a hurry with his election petition in order to take Akufo-Addo off the Presidency and get his runoff.

This comes after the Supreme Court ordered Mr Mahama to file his witness statements and arguments in response to the preliminary objection raised by the respondents latest by Wednesday, January 27.

“One would expect that John Mahama would rather be in a hurry to get an “illegitimate” president thrown out 4 the runoff done quickly for him to take his ‘rightful’ throne. Election petition: Justices take on Mahama’s team for not filing witness statements,” Gabby tweeted on Tuesday.

Published

on


The Seven-member Supreme Court panel hearing the 2020 Election Petition has ordered the legal team of John Mahama to comply with its orders and file their witness statements by close of Wednesday.

The Court also warned that failure to comply with their order will attract sanctions as imposed by law.

The caution follows an explanation by Counsel for the Petitioner, Tony Lithur that they had opted not to file witness statements as ordered by the court due to pending applications earlier filed.

According to him, Mr. Mahama has filed a stay of proceedings along with an application for the apex court to review the dismissal of his permission to serve the EC some 12 interrogatories.

However, the court insisted that it’s earlier order must be complied with, failure of which can result in the dismissal of the petition.
