Majority Leader Kwamena Afenyo-Markin has admonished his colleagues to respect the decision of their flagbearer on who he presents as his running mate and who the New Patriotic Party (NPP) structure accepts as the running mate.

In the wake of Andy Appiah Kubi making unfavourable remarks about the possible candidature of his colleague Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh as the running mate, the Majority Leader further pointed out that officially the part has not announced who the running mate is.

In an interview he stated that names of those likely to be running mates coming up are respected party members who have worked hard for the party, and it would be inappropriate for one individual to call out one person and denigrate the person.

He discouraged colleagues from coming out with some attacks, described people in bad manner. This game of politics when destiny choose you is like that, it does not matter your age and height, educated or not educate, humble or not, we should all wait and ensure the unity of the party.

Again, when Professor Jane Nana Opoku was chosen, the decision was around thirty five percent we know, but when the decision was announced they rally and we did not hear a single soul in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) coming out publicly to say no; none is perfect, we have to manage each other and see what the person brings on board and cautioned that his colleagues should be mindful of what they say out there if the decision is eventually made.

We should support the party and not attack the decision of the party and the flagbearer; we have done so much for this country, we will make Ghana proud by protecting our legacy, he emphasized.
