The Director General of the State Interests and Governance Authority, Stephen Asamoah Boateng, has admitted that his biggest threat in the upcoming National Chairmanship race of the ruling NPP is Steven Ayesu Ntim.
In a one-on-one interview with Philip Osei Bonsu on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen afternoon show, Mr. Asamoah Boateng said out of the number of people who have expressed desire to vie for the topmost position in the National Executives’ elections, the one who poses a huge challenge to his bid is Steven Ntim.
“Let me be honest with you, O.B, out of the numerous persons who want to contest for this position, the one who is a threat to me is Mr. Steven Ntim. The fact of the matter is that he knows the terrain and has been doing this for years. I would say that he is the one who can worry me in this race,” he admitted.
Asabee, as he is popularly called, was in the studios of Asempa FM to be interviewed on a variety of subjects pertaining to the ruling party.
He used the opportunity to declare his intention to go for the chairmanship position since, in his view, he has built himself in terms of institutional knowledge and experience to help the party break the dreaded eight years.
His admission to the fact that Steven Ntim leads the pack dovetails into the belief of many patriots across the country who have said that it is Steven Ntim’s time to lead the party.
Ntim has enough wealth of experience and expertise in leading the NPP to victory. His statement has always been this, ‘Give me a candidate and I will make him the next President of Ghana’.
Ntim enjoys support from all corners of the party and is billed to annex the topmost position of the party when the elections are held.
