Honourable Ntoso remarked that tension in a political party could lead to a national upheaval.
Volta regional minister, Helen Ntoso is appealing to the political opponents of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) not to rejoice over the current wrangling in the party.
Speaking as a guest preacher at the Global Evangelical Church Womens' National Convention at Adaklua-Wumenu near Ho on Sunday, Honourable Ntoso remarked that tension in a political party could lead to a national upheaval.
“We have heard what happened in Upper East where some people had to pour acid on the regional NPP chairman. Even though we are playing politics, we do not have to rejoice over this, because one politician can cause mayhem in this country. One politician can cause trouble for us to run out of this country. The truth is, Ghana is a very interesting and peaceful place to leave,” she stressed.
Confusion has rocked the NPP following the killing of the party’s Upper East regional chairman, Adams Mahama. Fingers are already pointing at party chairman Paul Afoko and General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong as masterminds of the murder, but the duo have denied any involvement.
Flag-bearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, at a press confab last Friday to restore peace in the party, urged all members to stop pointing fingers and wait for the police to conclude their investigations. He also called on them to cease fire and work in unison.
