The crisis that has befallen the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) is a sign of “spectacular leadership failure,” Deputy Minister of Communication in charge of Information, Felix Ofosu Kwakye, has said.

Ofosu Kwakye argues that the Party’s flgabearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo, could have been more assertive in dealing with the infighting.

Speaking on News file on Accra-based Joy Fm, he intimated that, if the NPP’s Presidential candidate was fully driven by the passion to salvage the confusion, he could have acted timely. “It is little too late for him,” Mr Kwakye challenged.

No party he said can win power with a troubled and crocked front, insisting Akuffo Addo delayed in his call for a truce.

“There was nothing despotic to call people to order.”

There has been an intractable tension in the NPP recently. Some supporters of the party have pressed for the National Chairman, Paul Afoko and the General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong to vacate their positions.

This follows their alleged involvement in the killing of the party’s Upper East chairman, Adams Mahama, who was acid-bathed recently, which subsequently led to his demise at the Bolga Hospital.
