The 2016 flagbearer of the main opposition New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo has said he did not “understand” the recent controversial comments made by former finance minister Yaw Osafo Marfo to be tribalistic.

Speaking on Starr FM, he said, “I didn't understand Osafo Marfo's comments to be tribalistic.”

The founding member of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) came under fire in recent times for allegedly bemoaning, in a meeting with Eastern regional Council of elders of the party that non-Akans from regions which do not possess the resources of the country are rather in charge of the governance of the state.

“We should protect ourselves, we should protect our income. No one who is the source of income, the source of revenue, the source of resources; allows another person without those resources the chance [to rule over them].

“It’s never done anywhere in the world. In the world over, it is the group with the most resources that rules and not the other way around.”
