Lawyer Anokye Frimpong, a historian, lawyer and an Nkrumaist has stated that the NDC as a political party has consistently made a mistake in its political history by choosing its running mates from the Central Region.

According to him, the people of the Central Region and Greater Accra are very liberal and very discerning, highly educated and have produced a lot of scholars and elites so their votes are based on competence and not tribalistic.

He is of the view that if NDC wants to win power in election 2024, the party must consider picking a running mate from the Ashanti Region.

“Ashanti Region covers Ahafo, Eastern and part of Western so considering someone from the Ashanti Region will automatically win victory for NDC because Ashanti’s are conservative (tribalistic) and would not necessarily vote based on competence but would consider their own, “he told Captain Smart on Onua Maakye show yesterday (on Thursday) and by The Punch Newspaper.

Lawyer Anokye Frimpong throwing more light on the political fortunes of the NDC in election 2024 disclosed that when it comes to mobilization of funds to support electioneering campaign the Ashantis and those in the Eastern part of Ghana can easily mobilise because they are business oriented people but those in the Central Region only concentrate on education and are less financially endowed.

As a result, as an opposition political party that is desperate for power would need money for which reason considering someone from the Ashanti Region as the running mate of John Dramani Mahama will help the NDC win power in election 2024.

But it is very sad that the NDC has by this time refused to name a running mate knowing very well that Dr Samuel Sarpong is the rightful person among the people in the Ashanti Region who can win more votes from the region.

The NDC is Just going round but the truth must be told.Dr Samuel Sarpong has the track record,he has been an Ashanti Regional Minister and a City Mayor of Kumasi before.

He holds all the kings at heart and has the respect of all the Ashantis.

His consideration as a running mate to partner John Dramani Mahama is a sure ticket to NDC’s victory in election 2024.

The bases of choosing a running mate depends on only two key factors.

Firstly,the financial fitness of the person and secondly the person’s popularity among the populated area.

Dr Samuel Sarpong holds all these qualities and has the respect of every King in the Region.

Dr Samuel Sarpong’s popularity cuts across and the NDC should not joke with that.

The NDC should never joke with the forging characters if indeed they want to win election 2024 with ease.

All the chiefs in Ashanti Region love him because of his relationship with them ever since he served as a mayor and a minister.

He became more closer to the traditional leaders since his appointment and this has gained him the needed respect and recognition of which is the reason he must be considered to partner John Dramani Mahama.

Dr Samuel Sarpong applies his educational background coupled with traditional intelligence to achieve goals
