Former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate for the Kpone-Katamanso Constituency, Hopeson Adorye has lashed out at some supporters of the NPP who verbally attacked him over his Facebook post sought to project the trade minister, Alan Kyeremanteng over the Veep, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia.
Reacting to the comments by the angry NPP supporters who were not happy with the presidential staffer throwing his weight behind Mr. Alan Kyeremanteng instead of the vice president, Mr. Hopeson wrote, “Some of you think like monkey. I am not a zombie so get it clear!”
According to the NPP supporters, Hopeson should have been campaigning for Dr. Bawumia to succeed president Akufo-Addo, who they all work for, but he rather support the trade minister.
It will be recalled that a story recently published by GhanaWeb culled from Mr. Hopeson’s instagram page, indicated his declaration for the 3 times NPP flagbearer.
Mr Adorye shared an image of
the minister with a caption which is gradually turning out to be Mr Kyerematen’s campaign tagline.
“Next to lead,” he tagged the image of a smiling Mr Kyerematen on his Instagram page.
This comes after Empress Gifty Adorye, the
wife of the former parliamentary candidate endorsed Mr Kyerematen at a gospel event where she introduced Alan Kyerematen as the “David of our time” at her gospel show organized on May 1, 2022.
The race for who becomes the next flagbearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party is gathering momentum.
As the party prepares for the actual election to decide on its presidential candidate for 2022, two members have currently emerged as the lead contenders.
The two, Vice President Dr Mahamudu
Bawumia and Trades Minister John Alan
Kwadwo Kyerematen, are seen as leading in the race.
Their fight for the leadership reigns of the NPP has resulted in a growing trend of declarations by some party members on who they are rooting for in the contest.
