Editor-in-chief of the Crusading Guide Newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako says the reaction of New Patriotic Party (NPP) General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong to his purported resignation letter portrayed him as combative.

News about the resignation of Mr. Agyepong became rife on the media scene on Tuesday evening.

But, Mr. Agyepong in an interview with Joy News denied knowledge of the letter insisting that "I am still at post, I have not resigned and I intend to see out my mandate”.

He alleged that "clearly these are unseen hands; people who want to destroy our party, bring the name of our party into disrepute. All that they have tried to do these past two weeks; even to try and hang murder around my neck.

"I am a very firm, strong person and resolute. By the Grace of God, I believe in what I am doing and I know I am right. I am going to stick to my position. Those who think I am going to resign should better think about that. I am not going to resign. Those who want to impeach me can go ahead. I will make sure they will lose the impeachment effort."

Speaking on Peace FM’s morning show Kokrokoo, Mr. Baako condemned the seemingly combative approach adopted by Mr. Agyepong. According to him, Mr. Agyepong should have simply denied the claims that he had resigned without accusing anyone.

It is clear that Kwabena is convinced he’s done nothing wrong. It is clear that he wants to continue in his office and that he will fight to the end. If I were him, I would not have said all those things yesterday (Tuesday). All I would have done is a straightforward denial of responsibility for that letter. He went too far. He now raised the stakes and said all sorts of things…Those things he said will not grow a critical mass of sympathy for him within the party structures”, he said.

Adding, “The language he applied, the things he said cannot and will not create a critical mass of sympathy and understanding and good will. It looks as if he’s in a combative mood. It only sends ripples to other side to also do combat.”

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, NPP Members of Parliament have advised the two to “step aside”. The Minority in Parliament after a meeting on Tuesday decided that Mr. Afoko and Mr. Agyepong’s absence will help calm tempers in the party.
