Kofi Adams has taken a swipe at the NPP over the death of its chairman in the Upper East region.
The National Organiser of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Kofi Adams says the death of the NPP’s Adams Mahama shows the escalation of irresponsibility in the opposition party.
Kofi Adams believes the murder of the Upper East regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is testament to the fact that the party is a disorganized group of people.
Consistent with the reframe of members of the governing party since the tragic incident, the National Organiser listed a litany of incidents he said exposed the NPP for what it has become - group of violent people.
Kofi Adams was analyzing the death of Adams Mahama on Joy FM and MultiTV’s news analysis programme, Newsfile, Saturday.
Mr. Mahama had acid poured on him by two assailants Wednesday and was confirmed dead Thursday morning at the Bolgatanga Regional Hospital.
The motive for the murder is yet to be ascertained but only last week, there was a violent confrontation in the Upper East Region which resulted in the scuttling of a planned meeting between the party chair and general secretary and other regional executives of the party.
Adams Mahama had indicated he was not aware of the planned meeting and wondered why the two national executives will organise a party meeting in his region, with his executives and would not inform him about it.
Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyapong were said to have lodged an assault complaint with the Upper East police but also indicated that Adams Mahama was well aware of the meeting.
The controversy caused a bit of a stir in the party until Wednesday night's acid attack on Adams Mahama.
One of the two suspects, Gregory Afoko, who is said to be a brother to Paul Afoko is in police grips.
The news about the death of the party chairman has left many shocked and has also led to some attacks especially in the Upper East Region.
NDC Kofi Adams said the kind of fate suffered by the late chairman “is a draw back on our forward march to democratic [consolidation].”
