A founding member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Pianim has advised party leaders and members to allow peace to prevail in the party.

The internal wrangling in NPP, according to pundits, has reached a crisis point after the party’s Upper East regional chairman, Adams Mahama died following an acid attack last week. Fingers are already pointing at Mr. Afoko and General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong as masterminds of the murder, but the duo have denied any involvement.

Earlier, pulse.com.gh reported that some supporters of the National Chairman, Paul Afoko, clashed with the security group guarding the party’s headquarters to protest attempts to oust him from office. Two people got injured in the process while the police stayed there to prevent further clashes.

The Council of Elders has reportedly written to the two national officers to step aside to allow peace to prevail but Agypeong has categorically stated he will not resign.

Mr. Pianim, speaking to Citi News warned that if members do not remain calm, it may lead to the ultimate destruction of the party.

“All the factions should pull themselves from the brink… let us call a truce… Ghana is too important for our personal small egos to get in the way. It is Ghana that is at stake. We need everybody in the party. We cannot afford to let one person go out – Kwabena Agyepong or Paul Afoko…so let peace prevail.”

“It is all of us who allowed these fights on the radio, in the electronic and print media – they all seem to encourage this very difficult political debate that has gone beyond the point of civility.”

“If NPP is destroyed now, it is destroyed for everybody and if anybody tries to go and form another party, it will not work because third parties have never worked in Ghana”, he cautioned.

Mr. Pianim also called for unity so as to honour the late Adams Mahama.

“We should all stop insulting one another, all of us should rally together and unite to give the memory of our brother the honour it deserves”.
