A Political Science lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kwasi Amakye has indicated that the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has "failed" as a political party.

According to him, the wrangling in the party and the inability of the party’s leadership to resolve it is enough evidence to show that the party is not ready to come to power.


“We need a political system that all of us as Ghanaians, are prepared to work with such that irrespective of what happens, we have all agreed on the narrative framework so that we allow the dictates to have its own cause; so people who are given the mandate can sit down and work without looking over their shoulders.

“So if we can’t get this done in the political atmosphere, then the party has failed. If a political party like the NPP cannot put measures in place to resolve this very trivial internal matters, then the party has failed absolutely,” he said on Accra-based Radio XYZ.

The internal wrangling in NPP has been deepened recently following the death of Alhaji Adams Mahama. The two national executives [Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyepong] are being accused of masterminding the killing of the party’s Upper East regional chairman and causing division in the party. Already, some people are calling for the resignation of the duo.

Meanwhile, an Accra Magistrate’s Court has remanded the younger brother of NPP Chairman, Paul Afoko in Police custody over the acid attack that killed Adams Mahama.
