Abronye DC, the Bono Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), a maverick Ghanaian politician, has stated that the party’s grassroots are extremely dissatisfied with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his administration.
DC, also known as Kwame Baffoe-Abronye, stated in an interview with Okay FM that people who were appointed but have not been faithful to the party are still in high positions in government organizations without giving the foot soldiers opportunities.
He believes that if those at the grassroots level are perpetually marginalized, this trend will be the NPP’s undoing in the 2024 elections.
“… the party’s foot soldiers, regional executives, founding members, patrons, all of them are not happy with some of the decisions taken by the appointing authorities, the president and co.
“The foot soldiers are angry. If from now to 2024 we don’t resolve issues, things will collapse before we realize it and if things collapse, we are all going to go.
“… the foot soldiers always determine whether the NPP wins an election or not. And if you check critically all the elections the NPP has lost were due to the foot soldiers deciding not to vote,” he during the interview conducted recently.
He added that the recent hooting of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the parts strongholds gives credence to his worry.
