The Member of Parliament for Kade in the Eastern Region, Ofosu Asamoah says the Minority caucus in Parliament should not have issued the statement calling for the National Chairman, Paul Afoko and General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong to step aside.

Speaking to Citi News, Mr. Asamoah said the minority caucus should have advised the duo to step aside so there would be peace instead of writing to them.

“What does our constitution say in terms of removal? Even if we want to persuade them that due to what is happening, they should step aside, we in the Parliamentary caucus could have a meeting with them, either the leadership or the whole caucus.  You are supposed to advice. You don’t issue statements.”

“We are talking about rule of law, or do we only practice it when we come to power and not when we are preparing for power? Is that what we are saying? At the end of the day, the party will lose and that is our problem”, he noted.

The minority New Patriotic Party (NPP) members in Parliament on Wednesday, joined the calls asking the party’s National Chairman, Mr. Afoko and Mr. Agyepong to step down from their respective positions following the death of the party’s Upper East Regional Chairman, Adams Mahama.

The two national executives are being accused of masterminding the killing Mr. Adams and causing divisions in the party.

But Ofosu Asamoah believes there is no basis for the accusations. He has therefore advised members to keep calm for the police to conclude their investigations.

“I think the immediate cause, although there may be some other remote causes, of the calls for the removal of Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyepong is the death of the Upper East regional Chairman and the police are investigating. Unfortunately I am not aware of party members who are speaking on the radio and TV, saying all sorts of things, volunteering information to the Police. Yet party members seem to know or identify those who killed him and those who are behind. That is causing all these troubles. [People are] trying to link the Chairman and the General Secretary just because they happened to have been chased out of the region a few days before the murder. The police have not invited them, the party has not set up any investigative committee to look into it and yet there are calls for them to step aside.”
