President John Mahama has once again attacked the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) which is currently experiencing internal strife, questioning who the party’s Chairman is.
Addressing teeming supporters while rounding his two day tour of the Volta Region ahead of the NDC’s primaries, the President made fun of the NPP which has not seen peace in the last several months.
Mr Afoko the suspended National Chairman of the NPP, on Thursday held a press conference insisting he was still in charge of the party, at the same time the acting Chairman Freddy Blay was also addressing the media to respond to President Mahama’s attack.
However the President taunted the NPP asking “Who is your chairman?.”
“On the day that opana [Freddie Blay] was doing his press conference to respond to me, somebody too was doing a press conference accusing him and saying he is going to court,” Mahama stated.
“This man said I’m acting chairman of the party and this one said I’m chairman of the party so I thought opana will rather pay attention to the competence of uniting his party than addressing press conferences at me. So one mark of competence in leadership is to manage people.
Right now I don’t even know who to address. So who is the chairman?” the president laughed out.
He has therefore counseled supporters of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) to “maintain the peace and unity in our party” ahead of Saturday’s primaries.
