The host of the Alhaji and Alhaji show on Pan African TV, Sena Nombo, has expressed total disappointment in his colleague tribesman, Hopeson Adorye, for failing to recognize or call for fairness for his own background.
Reacting to the statement made by Hopeson Adorye on the “Edurowo so” walk for Alan, Sena Nombo explained that he listen to Hopeson and he realized that Hopeson identified himself as Hopeson Yaovi Adorye.
But even after identifying himself as Yaovi, he decided not to fight for the Ewes but he decided to fight for Asantes.
“The fact that pained me was that he introduced himself as Hopeson Yaovi Adorye and he did not add the Volta Region. I am surprised that he did not even add his background. But at least he should just say the Ewes are there.”, he explained.
Quickly interjecting Sena Nombo, Kwesi Pratt explained that he does not believe in tokenism. He told Sena Nombo that although Hopeson Adorye is an Ewe, that does not mean that he should push for an Ewe President.
“The fact that he is called Yaovi should not mean that he should be pushing for an Ewe President or running mate.”, he explained. Sena Nombo still insisted that at least Hopeson Adorye should have mentioned the Voltas.
This current problem which is rearing its ugly head in the New Patriotic Party is a recurring perennial problem. This problem is always solved by reiterating the tradition of the New Patriotic Party, which is the United Party tradition. And this tradition does not believe in worshipping or idolizing some selective people.
But the fear of other regions and other top members of the New Patriotic Party is that they will never have the chance or the privilege of seeing one of their tribesmen leading the party. Their fear is that the flagbearer position will always rotate amongst only three lineages.
