Former President John Agyekum Kufour has expressed sadness over the continuous tension mounting up in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) following the death of the Upper East Regional Chairman of the party, Adams Mahama.

A statement signed by his spokesperson, Frank Agyekum, and issued in Accra said the former president finds it worrying that issues in the party are constantly discussed in the media instead of the laid down procedures of the party’s constitution.

Mr. Kuffour who is currently out of the country advised that the death of Adams Mahama should reunite party members rather than cause divisions. According to him, the entire nation is looking up to the party as the alternative government.

“The painful and untimely passing away of Alhaji Mahama should be used to unite the party and not to tear it apart…the national investigative system that has already taken charge of the process be allowed to work, rather than the party seeming to pre-empt the outcome”, a portion of the statement said.

The internal wrangling in NPP, according to pundits, has reached a crisis point after Adams Mahama died following an acid attack last week. Fingers are already pointing at party chairman Paul Afoko and General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong as masterminds of the murder, but the duo have denied any involvement. Council of Elders of the party is asking the two to step aside for peace to prevail in the party.

Earlier, pulse.com.gh reported that some supporters of Mr. Afoko clashed with the security group guarding the party’s headquarters to protest attempts to oust him from office.

Meanwhile, Presidential candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will today speak on recent in-fighting within the party for the first time.
