Security Analyst, Dr. Kwesi Anning has asked Ghanaians not to politicize the tragic death of the Upper East Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Adams Mahama.

According to Dr. Anning, it is important that thorough investigations are conducted to bring the perpetrators to book.

“It is very important that we move our conversations around this issue away from politics and to concentrate on the criminal side… it is important that we don’t politicize this murder…it is a criminal act and we need to look at that because if we don’t deal with this case as quickly as possible then we may have some ramifications that may be unpleasant…There may be political difficulties but somebody who is not related to that political difficulty may exploit that difficult situation for their own other end”, he said on Citi FM.

Two men poured acid on the Upper East regional chairman of the party when he was returning from his construction site late in the night.

According to Adama Mahama’s aide, Zakariah Osman, the NPP chairman was in his car when he was stopped by two unidentified persons, and in an attempt to inquire the reason why he was stopped, they poured the substance on him.

The regional chairman was rushed to the Bolgatanga Regional Hospital where he died.

Some party members are accusing the party’s national chairman, Paul Afoko and general secretary, Kwabena Agyepong of being behind the act.

                                                       

Background to their claim

Adams was in the news recently after some irate supporters of the Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition chased out Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyepong from a meeting in the region. The angry party members allegedly attacked the national executives and others with sticks and broken bottles for organising the meeting without informing the regional chairman, Adams. Adams was accused of masterminding the riot but denied and cautioned national executives to respect party structures.
