Former General Secretary of the opposition New Patriotic Party, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, has warned party leaders to desist from “divisive” comments.

According to him, exposing the party to public scrutiny has the potential of costing them the 2016 elections.

NPP’s internal wrangling has the General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong and party Chairman Paul Afoko on one hand, and the first Vice Chairman Freddie Blay and his camp on the other. This seemed to have deepened when the first national vice chairman of the NPP, Freddie Blay organised a steering committee meeting while both the party chairman, Paul Afoko and General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong were away.

The two have raised qualms with the organisation of the meeting behind their back while Mr. Blay insists that the general secretary was aware of the said meeting, which was graced by the presidential candidate Nana Akuffo-Addo.

Again, there were claims that Mr. Agyepong and Nana Addo were not in good terms but the former has mentioned that he has a cordial relationship with the latter but the people around the flag-bearer seem to have created an imaginary tension between the two.

Many derogatory comments have been made in reaction to the organisation of the steering committee meeting. These comments, according to Sir John, could cost the party in the 2016 elections.

“Everybody in this country is opposed to the way that we appear to be tearing each other apart and my advice is that for the sake of the voters, for the sake of the ordinary Ghanaian who wants change, we must put ourselves together. I also advise the leadership to be circumspect in the way they speak and the way they come on radio to tear each other apart,” he told Accra-based Citi FM.
