Kufuor calls for calm in NPP

Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has expressed sadness and deep worry over happenings in the New Patriotic Party (NPP), following the death of Upper east Region Chairman Alhaji Adams Mahama last week.

Former President Kufuor, who has been abroad over the period as a result of prior-arranged engagements, on Thursday, May 28 reiterated the need for calm and circumspection in the affairs of the party.

He cautioned party members against acrimonious accusations in the media which only serve to further divide their ranks and allow their detractors to infiltrate them.

Former President Kufuor, who has been engaging the rank and file of the party over the phone on the on-going wrangling, said the NPP needs to unite not only for its own good but for Ghanaians, who are looking up to it as the alternative government.

A statement signed by his aide, Frank Agyekum,  said the former NPP Leader finds it disquieting that issues that must be resolved in accordance with laid down procedures of the party’s constitution are constantly being discussed in the media without regard to the overall effect on its fortunes.

The former president urged that the painful and untimely passing away of Alhaji Mahama should be used to unite the party and not tear it apart.

He further appealed that the national investigative system that has already taken charge of the process be allowed to work rather than the party seeming to preempt the outcome.
