The convenor of the youth movement called The People’s Forum (TPF), Mr Kwame Asare Obeng aka A-Plus has lamented over the recent happenings in the ruling New Patriotic Party( NPP).
Speaking in an interview on Okay FM on Monday, August 30, which was monitored by the MyNewsGhana, A-Plus said that the recent skirmishes that ensued among NPP constituency executives in Suhum at a funeral sum up how the affairs of the party are being managed.
According to him, the long-held perception that the NPP was handled by intelligent and wise people in society is no more true.
A-Plus said that many people switched camp to the NPP because of people like former President John Agyekum Kufuor, Madam Gladys Asmah and Mr Hackman Owusu Agyemang who were classified as wise and knowledgeable people based on how they went about party issues.
He said previously, the NPP’s strategy was to have wise people lead as front liners of the party whereas the others follow their lead.
With the passage of time, A-plus now believes that some people who are seen as fools have being given prominence in the party whereas very influential and sensible people have been relegated to the background.
“Where are the wise in the NPP. Of late the wise people in that party have stayed back and now the foolish ones have taken over” he said.
He concluded by is saying that the confusion that ensued among NPP constituency executives in Suhum is only a dress rehearsal for greater chaos to come in the future.
“In 2021 if you are attacking your party members with cutlasses then what will you do in 2022,” he asked.
