Bugri Naabu calls for calm among NPP supporters

As the Supreme Court is yet to decide when hearing will begin on the substantive election petition filed by Nana Akufo-Addo and the two other plaintiffs, a founding father of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Messrs Daniel Bugri Naabu has called for calm among party supporters.

He is unhappy about the manner in which some NPP leading members particularly the youth are issuing statements condemning others for the NPP’s electoral woes.

“We should try to be united and put a stop to issuing unnecessary statements in the media against each other; anybody who has interest in the party should just be patient and support our Presidential candidate for 2012, his running mate and the national Chairman of the party in court.”

Messrs Bugri Naabu is convinced that Nana Akuffo who turned 69 on Easter Friday will carry the day in Court for which reason the NPP youth should exercise maximum restraint.

“I want to congratulate our flag bearer Nana Akufo-Addo on his 69th birthday and I am using this platform to appeal to especially the youth of our party to exercise maximum restraint and I believe we will win the case.”

He further pleaded with the Supreme Court Judges to take a cursory look at the work done by their colleagues in Kenya and fast track the substantive election petition filed by Nana Addo, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and Mr. Jake Otanka Obetsebi Lamptey.
