Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has issued a caution to all members of the party to desist from discussing internal matters on the media landscape, stating that this behaviour will affect the fortunes of the party in the run-up to the 2016 elections.
Nana Akufo-Addo made this known in Oda, as his “Rise and Build Tour” reached the Eastern Region, on Monday, September 7, the first day of his three-day tour of the region.
Addressing party faithfuls consisting of constituency executives, parliamentary candidates and party sympathisers from eight constituencies, Nana Akufo-Addo expressed his deep concern about the raging ‘media battle’ being waged by some members of the party on internal party issues.
“I am very concerned about what is happening (in the party). I have made a clear decision in my mind that we will have to resolve these issues. The radio campaign in our party is not helping any of us. Let us stop discussing NPP matters on the radio,” he said much to the approval of the NPP members at a packed auditorium of the St. Luke Methodist Church.
He urged NPP members not to be provoked into responding to any issue bordering on internal party matters convinced that: “if no one gives any credence to the matters that are being discussed, that matter will die. When responses to these issues come from us that is when the matter degenerates.”
Nana Akufo-Addo admonished NPP members to “make a resolution (that) no more radio campaign in the NPP. The problems will have to be resolved.”
