A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Kobina Arthur Kennedy has indicated that flag-bearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, during his recent press conference, should have condemned moves by some party executives in an attempt to oust the National Chairman, Paul Afoko and General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong.

Speaking on Citi Fm’s News analysis programme, The Big Issue, on Saturday, Dr Arthur Kennedy opined that Nana Addo could have done better.

“Most people in the National Executive Council (NEC) have already revealed their stance. The same NEC people have been inundated with a number of petitions. So first, Nana Addo should have unequivocally condemned the impeachment procedures that was the key essential for peace. The second thing is that he should have gone to the press conference with Agyepong on his left and Afoko on his right and called for peace,” he said.

Arthur Kennedy advised that such petitions against the two elected national executives must not be entertained. According to him, the scuffle in NPP could stop if the call for the two to step aside ends.

“When people go to congress and contest positions, they are entitled to hold the positions except for illness, death or something extraordinary. For some time now, it has been occurring that there have been some people who are determined not to let Mr Afoko and Mr Agyepong serve their term and the two of them as they are entitled, are determined to serve the mandate.”

Nana Akufo-Addo on Friday addressed party supporters at the headquarters of the party in Asylum Down, Accra in a move to restore calm in the party. Among other things, he called on members to ‘cease fire’ and allow Mr. Afoko and Mr. Agyepong access to their offices.

The Invincible Forces security at the headquarters were said to have taken over the premises and prevented the two beleaguered executives from entering their respective offices following accusations that they masterminded the killing of the party’s Upper East regional chairman, Adams Mahama. The minority caucus and Council of Elders had written to Mr. Afoko and Agyepong to step aside for peace to prevail in the party.
