Politics of Tuesday, 25 July 2017
A group calling itself National NPP Youth for Stephen Ntim has assured supporters of the former National First Vice Chairman, Stephen Ntim to remain calm and not be alarmed as he is still in the race contesting for the chairmanship position of the party.
This follows a publication by the Al-hajj newspaper that allegedly states “Akufo-Addo ‘stops’ Ntim from contesting NPP chair race in favour of Alhaji Short”.
In the said publication, it reported that President Akufo-Addo bent on getting his preferred candidate to become the next National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, cannily baited Stephen Ntim with a lucrative post in his government by making him Chairman of the Governing Board of Ghana Lands Commission to get him back down his ambition.
The group has denied allegations made by the Al-hajj newspaper in a press statement and believes it is a move by the opposition NDC to create confusion in the party.
They said “ we are assuring our teeming supporters and crusaders nationwide to treat the publications as pure falsehood and lacks merit, this is because there is no iota of truth in the said publication and we believe is one of the many machinations from the NDC to create tension in our great party. Mr Stephen Ayensu Ntim has our party at heart and will not relent on his dreams of becoming the National Chairman of our great party”.
