The Director of Operations of Alan Kyeremateng’s 2024 campaign, Hopeson Adorye has averred that northerners who he said represent the Dombo side of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) tradition are only fit for running mates in the party.
In a damning verdict on Northerners, Adorye ridiculed their status in the NPP, saying Dombos are always in the mix and fit as running mates to either a Dankwa candidate or a Busia candidate so, that tradition must continue.
“There is one thing I am going to say. The NPP has a tradition. Our tradition is Busia, Danquah and Dombo. Danquah represents Eastern Region and the bottom (south), Danquah represents Ashanti Region and the Bono areas, while Dombo represents Northern Region,” Hopeson Adorye, talk participants of a walk in Kumasi dubbed a “Walk for Alan.”
He continued: “whenever a Dankwa leads the party, the Busia side step aside but there is a Dombo (for running mate), and whenever a Busia lead, the Dankwa side step aside but there is a Dombo (for running mate). As for the Dombos they are always there (for running mate).”
“In 1992, Albert Adu Boahen, who represented Dankwa contested with a Dombo. In 1996, we had the Great Alliance bit in 2000, it came to Kufuor, who is a Busia, and he runned with a Dombo (as his running mate). Then after Kufuor, it moved back to Dankwa, with President Akufo-Addo. He also contested the election with another Dombo (as his running mate), who is Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia.
If it went to Dankwa, cane to Busia, went back to Dankwa, where should it go now, is it not Busia?” Hopeson Adorye said.
The Alan man fired more tribal salvos by urging the Ashanti Region and Asantes to vote for “one of their own”, Alan Kyeremateng to lead the NPP in 2024, because without Ashantis, the NPP cannot win any election in Ghana.
