F.F Anto’s comments were personal – Deputy Minority leader

Deputy Minority Leader and Member of Parliament for Bimbilla, Dominic Nitiwul, says comments made by the party’s Ashanti Regional Chairman, Frederick Fredua Anto, were his personal views.

According to him, "once the party has come out with a definite position through the national council that is it..."

The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Thursday criticized the party's 2012 flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, for failing to consult the party executives before accepting the verdict of the Supreme Court on the petition challenging John Mahama's presidency.

But speaking on Eyewitness News, the deputy minority leader said views by the Ashanti regional chairman were "an individual view".

According to him, he sat behind F.F Anto during a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting and he didn’t disagree with the position of the party.

"It is not the official position of the party, the official position of the party is very clear; that is what the flagbearer said yesterday [Thursday]."
