The race for the National Chairmanship position of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) is getting hotter and hotter by the day.
This is because candidates seeking to occupy that position have started throwing salvos and pointing accusing fingers at some individuals of trying to influence the outcome.
In the latest accusation, Mr. Stephen Ntim a national chairman hopeful has accused the president, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo of asking him to step down.
The allegation was made by Mr. Stephen Ntim when he met some party supporters three weeks ago in Koforidua.
In a leaked tape that this website has intercepted, he is heard telling party supporters that he has been asked to step down for the President’s prefered candidate, Alhaji Abubakar Abdul-Raman.
But a determined Stephen Ntim told the gathering that he will not be cowed by anybody in the party to forsake his dream of leading the party.
He warned the President to stay off the contest as he will not go down quietly like Mr. Afoko who was pushed away by some powerful figures.
“He [President Akufo-Addo] should back off, I am not going to be an Afoko, I’m going to be another chairman to oversee the winning of 2020, and 2024 irrespective of who will be the presidential candidate, that is my commitment to you, I am not fighting for anybody but fighting for my heart’s desire.”
