According to him, the Thursday incident shows the youth’s strong disapproval of the current happenings in the party
The Upper East regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Adam Mahama, has said he is grateful to the angry youth of the region who allegedly chased out the party’s national chairman, Paul Afoko and its General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong from a meeting in the region.
According to him, the Thursday incident shows the youth’s strong disapproval of the current happenings in the party.
“The youth have shown their displeasure on that, so I’m very grateful to them. All what they are asking the national chairman to convey to the national headquarters is that they want party unity and they want the national chairman, the general secretary to work with the rest of the executives.”
“The next time they are coming to the Upper East [region], they should come with the national organiser, deputy national youth organiser, the national Nasara coordinator; when we see them together, then we know that yes, there is unity at the party headquarters,” Mahama said on Ultimate 106.9FM's Ultimate Breakfast.
Mr. Afoko and Agyepong were in a meeting with constituency executives at Azonsolum Guest House when the supporters stormed the venue.
Reports are that, Adam Mahama is behind the youth’s action against the two national bosses. But Mahama has denied the claims, saying he was away in Accra and had to rush for the meeting.
The timely intervention of the police led to the safety of the two leaders and also prevented a degeneration of a possible chaos.
