Oboshie Sai Coffie


Oboshie Sai Coffie, a former minister of Information under the Kufuor administration, has said she may consider running for the New Patriotic Party flagbearer slot in future.

Ms Sai Coffie is so far the only woman in the NPP rumored to have an eye on the presidential candidature.

However, speaking on Radio XYZ?s Strict Proof, the former minister said there are more pertinent internal matters to attend to.

This, she said, overrides her personal ambition to contest for any position.

?The party is in a time of transition, growth; it is a time to multitask and restructure. So there is a lot to do before we can start throwing names around?, She responded.

Varying leading members of the NPP like Dr. Konadu Apraku, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, Alan Kyerematen have been named as possible candidates to slug it out for the NPP flagbeareship slot.

However, Ms Sai Coffie says, ?We have to make sure that from ground up, we strengthen our structures; make sure we have things in place before election in 2016?.

She conceded that the party needed more women to vie for such leadership roles and encouraged female members of the NPP to do so

Nonetheless she said ?I thank all those who believe I have the ability to run but presently the thought has not engaged my mind?.
