Flagbearer hopeful of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Francis Addai-Nimoh has shared his thoughts on how the party can break the '8' in the 2024 general elections.

At an event to announce his decision to contest the NPP flagbearership, he said the party urgently needs a new face and a unifier to win the next elections.

According to him, he brings this two to the table and should be elected to lead the party.

“A fractured NPP cannot win in 2024. It is, therefore, critical for all members to choose a candidate who is a relentless unifier.

“A leader who is not trapped in any factional exchanges. It is indeed disheartening to note that certain factions have been emerging for some time now in our party and I am not afraid to say things loud and clear that those factions have over time become an entrenched phenomenon that frankly has no place in our party,” Francis Addai-Nimoh said in an address on Wednesday.

The NPP flagbearer hopeful added, “Simply put such factions can only cost a devasting erosion of our relevance in the eyes of our electors.

“The prevailing circumstances of our party now require a new face as the next presidential candidate,” he added. “One must be a natural unifier, not an artificial unifier, that new face must have an unblemished character and a history of service you need to have an unblemished character so that people can testify about you.”

Francis Addai-Nimoh will face a very tough contest in the NPP primaries later this year.

He will contest for the position with former Agric Minister Dr. Owusu Akoto Afriyie, former Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen and a number of other party gurus interested in the leadership position.
