Justin Kodua jabs Mahama


General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Justin Kodua Frimpong has submitted that the Akan party label on the NPP has forever been expunged.

Speaking at the Accra Sports Stadium on November 4, 2023 when party faithful gathered for a mini rally after the emergence of Mahamudu Bawumia as flagbearer, the NPP scribe said history had been made with the outcome of the presidential primary.


He cited the instance of someone accusing the NPP of never allowing a northerner to lead the party when Akufo-Addo exists, to back his claim that the Akan label was gone.

His jab was an apparent reference to former president John Dramani Mahama’s submission of years back that Bawumia will fail to be elected NPP leader if he contests for the slot.

“Not long ago someone in this country made a statement, that when it comes to the New Patriotic Party, there is no way a person from the north can ever become a flagbearer of our party.

“But today, what has happened? But today, what has happened? But today, what has happened? But today, what has happened?” he chanted as the crowd shouted “history, history, history.”

Kodua Frimpong continued: “The NPP can no more and never be tagged as an Akan party because today we have a flagbearer who comes from the northern part of the country.

“That shows the national character of the New Patriotic Party. We are waiting to see the day that yaanom will also elect an Akan as presidential candidate,” he added.
