Is NPP Becoming A Party Of Mere Jokers And Talkative?

? The best description of the NPP as at writing is simply a political party full of a bunch of mere talkative jokers. By the despicable double-standards of some of their leaders, coupled with their obnoxious attitudes to backstab one another, many "burgers" are increasingly peeved that the party they expect to liberate Ghana from the NDC rogues is behaving so irresponsibly.

For positions within the party, some NPP members are going every length to soil the reputation of their colleagues or opponents. They are either lying about them for its own sake, or are revealing what may be secrets they hold about their rival-colleagues. Is this the best way for a party in opposition to aspire to come to power?

What if after their internal elections, the NDC decide to hang them on the very rope (words and revelations of course) they (NPP) have provided them? Today that they are washing their dirty linen in public all in attempts to outdoing their opponents, less have they thought about how the NDC will nicely hang the tattered dirty linen out in public on the dry lines come any general presidential and parliamentary elections. How will they feel when the NDC, although corrupt and awfully incompetent, decide to undermine them by employing their own revelations in anticipation of holding on to power? Have the NPP members thought about how their actions of today can become lethal weapons to be used against them by the wicked NDC?

We expect all those vying for positions within the party to campaign on policies; what they can do for the party to win back power. We require of them the disclosure of their intentions and abilities to help Ghanaians and Mother Ghana but not how best they can have a dig at their fellow NPP opponents. Mind you, the folly you display today will become a permanent scar or blemish on your personality to militate against you in future general elections. I hope all NPP contestants will see the relevance of this short message. A word to the wise is enough but the fool will never heed any intelligent admonition from the wise until they are inextricably ensnarled in the cobweb of their foolishness. When that happens, they begin to say, had I known….but it would be too late to undo what has been done. ? "It does not belong to he who is leading to redirect their steps" ? Rockson Adofo
