A New Patriotic Party (NPP) youth activist; Richard Nyamah says the party is handing the 2016 presidential elections on a silver platter to the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to him, it is likely that President John Mahama and the NDC are rejoicing over the current conflicts within the NPP.
“I’m sure President Mahama is probably at the Flagstaff House popping champagne as if he’s won the World Cup because of what is going on,” he said.
Mr. Nyamah also urged NPP presidential aspirant, Alan Kyeremanten to disband a group called ‘Get Alan Kyeremanten Elected (GAKE)’ because their activities go contrary to the belief of Mr. Kyeremanten.
He pointed out that the content of some press statements issued by the group “is so damning to Mr. Kyeremanten himself, his personality and his philosophy.”
Meanwhile, the spokesperson for Mr. Kyeremanten, Nana Ohene Ntow has vehemently denied allegations that Mr. Kyeremanten has moles within the party.
Mr. Ntow was convinced such allegations are aimed at tarnishing the image of Mr. Kyeremanten.
“I am lost for words that anybody would think up such a story; frame it up just to tarnish Alan Kyeremanten’s image,” he remarked.
According to him, Mr. Kyeremanten has on no occasion caused any problems within the NPP and expressed worry that the constant spewing of such lies “are getting out of hand.”
The former general secretary of the NPP noted that it is now almost “criminal for anybody to show his or her face openly” in support of Alan Kyeremanten for the NPP’s presidential race.
He also questioned why certain individuals are linking the lawsuit brought against the party by the former Constituency Chairman for Central Tongu, David Hoezame to Mr. Kyeremanten.
Mr. Hoezame has sued the leadership of the party at the High Court for breach of the party’s constitution.
“I don’t understand why if somebody in the party feels aggrieved and goes to court, then that should be traced to the doorsteps of Alan. Is that person part of Alan’s campaign?” he asked.
Mr. Ntow cautioned that if the NPP members are really serious about the future of the party, then they should desist from engaging in “this kind of politics.”
