NPP Elder Asks Nana Akufo-Addo

IF YOU CANNOT UNITE YOUR OWN PARTY, HOW CAN YOU UNITE AND HOLD THE NATION TOGETHER? NPP ELDER ASKS NANA AKUFO-ADDO



Mr. Yaw Osei Owusu, an elder of the party in the Kwabre East Constituency in the Ashanti Region has lashed out at the Presidential Candidate of the NPP, Nana Akufo-Addo for deepening factionalism in the party by introducing 'they' and 'them' through his henchmen within the party.



In an interview with Breeze FM, he stated that, "these sad developments are not good for the image of our party. I want to ask Nana Akufo-Addo, if you cannot work with your National Chairman and General-Secretary within your own party, how can you work with the rest of Ghanaians who did not support you if you become President?"



He cautioned Nana Akufo-Addo to show leadership and magnanimity and engage in activities that will bring the party together rather than the things that will divide and create unnecessary tension within the party.



He however observed that, if this trend continues, the NPP must forget about the 2016 elections which are some 18 months away.
