According to Davis Opoku, it is evident that some members of the NDC are working tirelessly to break up the NPP because it is on course to win the 2016 general elections
A personal aide to the General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Davis Opoku has indicated that the wrangling in the party is caused by some elements within the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to him, it is evident that some members of the NDC are working tirelessly to break up the NPP because it is on course to win the 2016 general elections.
“It is clear, the signs are very clear on the wall that the NPP is winning the next election so certainly you would have elements in the NDC who would want to cause confusion...so it is a strategy by the NDC,” he stated on Kasapa 102.3FM’s morning show, Anopa Kasapa.
NPP’s internal wrangling has the General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong and party Chairman Paul Afoko on one hand, and the first Vice Chairman Freddie Blay and his camp on the other. This seemed to have deepened when the first national vice chairman of the NPP, Freddie Blay organised a steering committee meeting while both the party chairman, Paul Afoko and General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong were away.
The two have raised qualms with the organisation of the meeting behind their backs while Mr. Blay that the general secretary was aware of the said meeting, which was graced by the presidential candidate Nana Akufo-Addo.
But according to Mr. Opoku, the ruling NDC is poised to set divisions among NPP executives and its members. He has therefore accused them of strategically causing the wrangling in NPP.
