He said the NPP is a party that has a track record of embracing every ethnic group in the country and added that it cuts across all ethnic persuasions.
Explaining further he said, the founding fathers of the party were not only Akans hence the labelling of the NPP as an Akan party, forms part of a smear campaign to create a false impression to northerners that Akans in the NPP party dictated the pace.
Netizens have been reacting to the endorsement, some of which have been sampled by YEN.com.gh.

Best to lead And next await u DMB

I would have thought that delegates will wait for the party’s program and also give themselves an opportunity to evaluate all the candidates first. Same with NDC where it is JDM and nobody else.
For now, DMB is yet to officially declare his intention to contest. Let us wait for that day. For some of us, HE IS NOT 80 YEARS and a GRANDFATHER... so heeding to JDMs words, he'll be the best choice to lead the country
Fear delegate, since I am a Spector I am waiting for the outcomes I wish them all the best
