"I speak for National Executives and Dr. [Ekow] Spio-Garbrah view is entitled to him alone.

"He may be talking from experience or information we are not privy to.”

Joy News had reported a press conference organised by the NDC in which Dr Spio Garbrah attacked the New Patriotic Party as a tribal party.

He said:“The [NDC] is a party that has had Presidents from the Volta, Central and Northern Regions [but] this is not the case in the NPP."

"The party [NDC] is nationally based but there are some parties which have declared that their leader should not come outside the five Akan regions."

NPP Deputy General Secretary Nana Obiri-Boahen described the comments as "unacceptable and historically incorrect."

"I was expecting him to speak like a mature politician and not a neophyte," he said.
