The 2012 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has said he is yet to disclose his political future.
Speaking to party faithful at his residence at Nima in Accra yesterday, he told them, “ I will disclose my intention after conferring with elders and key stakeholders of the party.
At that meeting the Greater Accra Regional Executive of the party took the opportunity to welcome him back home after six months vacation in the United Kingdom.
The NPP presidential candidate stated that he would soon declare his intention either or not to represent the party for the 2016 presidential polls after conferring with key stakeholders.
“I have to consult with elders and leaders of our party in order to be in a position to come up with a decision and in a short while you will hear of the answer,” he assured the executive.
Nana Akufo Addo’s answer followed a question the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the NPP, Mr Ishmael Ashitey, posed to him to confirm his intention to stand for the party during the 2016 presidential polls.
Nana Akufo-Addo also declined to make clear his presidential ambition to the executives when a former chief executive of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly, Mr Stanly Adjiri Blankson, also pushed him to open up.
Assurance to party faithful
The NPP presidential candidate commended the Greater Accra regional executive of the party for conducting peaceful elections to elect their constituency executives.
On the free SHS, Nana Akufo Addo welcomed the President’s decision to implement the policy.
He described the policy as good for the nation but needed firm commitment to implement it.
He, therefore, expressed the hope that stakeholders would show commitment to ensure the successful implementation of the policy.
“The Free SHS policy is a vision for the people of Ghana and not for me,” he stated.
At the meeting were leading members of the party, including his running mate for the 2012 elections, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and his 2012 campaign manager, Mr Boakye Agyarko.
