Seasoned journalist, Kwesi Pratt has fumed at statements that the NPP Running Mate, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh being from the Ashanti royal lineage is a good cause for the party to win the December 7 general elections.

Speaking to host Nana Yaw Kesseh on Peace FM’sKokrokoo” show, Kwesi Pratt quoted a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who made such remark on a radio station while extolling Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh on his appointment as Running Mate.

He reported this member, whose name he withheld, had made arguments for NAPO stating he is an Asante royal, hence complimenting the NPP for accepting him to partner Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

But to him, such remarks are disgusting and a threat to Ghana’s democracy.

“Since when is being an Asante royal now the qualification for position of Vice President? I am ashamed. It disgusts me because Ghana is a Republican State and it’s not royalty that makes a leader in this nation. In fact, when you speak like that, then you are lowering our constitutional democracy”, he exclaimed.
