The New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for Awutu Senya West constituency, George Nenyi Andah says the NPP is only distracted by opposition challenges, insisting that the party will weather the storm soon and come out as a stronger force in the 2016 elections.
He reiterated that despite the NPP troubles, the party still remains the best opposition in the political space, and it will position itself shortly towards winning the confidence of the people ahead of 2016 general elections.
“There is no political party that doesn’t have internal problems; even in the incumbent NDC there are similar confusions. The difference only lies in the fact that we’re just distracted by opposition challenges- that is what accounts for the misunderstanding within our party, and you see people going on radio to show their frustration,” the former leading member of pressure group Occupy Ghana told Kasapa 102.3 FM Tuesday.
The NPP has been in the news for what most people refer to as mistrust among the ranks and file of the party which is running the party into more troubles.
The most recent of the protracted confusion has been an allegation leveled against the party’s first Vice National Chairman, Freddie Blay and Treasurer, Abankwah Yeboah for diverting some party funds.
This saw the issues taking different twist and has ultimately resulted in the National Council of Elders calling for the suspension of the party’s chairman, Paul Afoko.
The party maintains the conduct of Afoko is bringing the image of the party into disrepute.
But commenting on the issues within the party on Anopa Kasapa, Nenyi Andah observed that the country has prevailing economic challenges which require the attention of the opposition NPP to address them for the common good of the ordinary Ghanaian.
He says the NPP cannot afford to fail Ghanaians on such expectation, hence it will in no time move beyond the internal squabbles and tackle the socio-economic issues head-on to help move the nation in the right direction.
