NPP leadership must think “straight” to win election

Johnson Asiedu Nketia has cast a slur on the current leadership of the New Patriotic Party claiming that their sense of reasoning is not “straight”.

He blamed them for steering the affairs of the party in a manner which exposed them of not being able to reason properly and focused.

Asiedu Nketia was commenting on the inability of the NPP elders to draw a concrete conclusion on how to handle their defeat to the NDC in the 2012 general elections.

According to him, it was an open secret that the party has been divided because of the egos at work within the leadership.

“The NPP are saying they want to eat plantain whilst some say yam. As soon as the sun sets and rises again, they say they want plantain. You can see that they aren’t focused and also their thinking pattern isn’t consistent,” he said.

In an interview with ‘Montie’ FM in Accra, Asiedu Nketia cautioned NPP elders of the party not to delude themselves as proponents of democracy since their post election posture paints them as “deviant” citizens.

“It is every clear for everyone to see the bad precedent the NPP is setting, I (Asiedu Nketia) am not the person to tell that story.

“A section of the party followers say let’s go to court, others say going to court doesn’t make sense; within the same party some say they won’t go to parliament and others are opposing it," he added.
