He told the host, Omanhene Yaw Adu Boakye that the idea that an Asante leads the NDC in Ashanti is not his personal idea.

“It is something we started back in 1992 with even Chairman Rawlings” and explained that “it was a deliberate idea to get more Ashantis leading the party just to make it attractive in the region”.

Osei Kofi stressed that the fact that we (NDC) abandoned that idea over the years does not mean we cannot go back to it.

It is something some of our big men in Accra support and therefore he will not shy away from it today or tomorrow.

He questioned if it is possible to go to the Volta region and see Osei Kofi leading the party as chairman or go to the north and see Osei Tutu as chairman there.

“Why should Ashanti be different”, he queried and concluded that he was stating facts and not preaching tribal politics.
