Andy Kwame Appiah-Kubi, a National Council member of the NPP and MP for Asante Akyem North, has criticized the National Security for its involvement in a poll regarding potential running mates for the NPP’s flagbearer. Appiah-Kubi, a private legal practitioner, argued that National Security has more important responsibilities than conducting surveys to serve individual interests.

He emphasized that the NPP constitution does not require the National Security to conduct polls on running mate preferences. His comments follow a National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) poll that surveyed 5,116 NPP delegates, showing that Energy Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh was preferred by over 80% of respondents.

In an interview with TV3’s Courage Komla Klutse on June 27, 2024, Appiah-Kubi deemed the survey unnecessary and inappropriate. He stated that if he were the presidential candidate, he would disregard the survey to show that National Security’s involvement was unwarranted.

Appiah-Kubi questioned the legitimacy and necessity of the survey, asking, “Where in the NPP constitution does it state that National Security should conduct a survey? Why would a national institution conduct a survey for a specific person’s nomination?” He concluded that National Security should focus on more important tasks.
