The President of IMANI Ghana, Franklin Cudjoe, has indicated that any political party that is riddled which chaos and anarchy will definitely be an incompetent government when voted into power.

He argued that “the anarchy in the politics leads to incompetence in governance…this is not a fanciful theory…”

Commenting on the recent suspension of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) National Chairman on Citi FM, the IMANI boss maintained that some habits translate into decision making therefore, citizens must be worried because “by the stroke of an election; you have people taking decisions that will affect the lives of people.”

Ghana’s main opposition party has been battling to keep the peace within its ranks following a series of complaints filed against Paul Afoko and the General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong.

On Friday, the NPP’s National Executive Committee (NEC) overwhelmingly upheld a decision taken by the Disciplinary Committee to have Mr. Afoko suspended indefinitely.

Mr. Afoko in defiance issued a statement asking the general public to disregard that decision.

An NPP youth group has since accused the party’s flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo of exhibiting hatred for members who are from the three regions of the north and has thus been scheming to expel them from the party.

According to Mr. Cudjoe however, although there must be some element of madness in every party, this madness is worryingly becoming the norm.

He said the things that should occupy the hearts and minds of a party that is working to come into office “has unfortunately been eroded and now we have to be dealing with conflicts that are not necessary. I am not saying there shouldn’t be conflict; there can be conflict but the way it is managed.”

He remarked that if internal party conflicts are not effectively managed, they end up taking away time that ought to have been vested in dealing with state matters.

“The discipline that ought to give way to sensible policy making unfortunately we are not seeing that and I am getting worried,” he added.
