Appiah-Menkah: In-fighting likely to cost NPP 2016 elections

Apente Appiah Menka NPP

A founder-member of the opposition New Patriotic Party, Akenten Appiah-Menkah, has said the party is likely to lose the 2016 elections if it does not unite in purpose behind a single candidate.

The businessman is among the Ashanti Regional Elders of the NPP who are urging the party to rally behind whoever emerges with the highest votes after Sunday’s super delegates’ conference meant to whittle down the number of flagbearer aspirants from seven to five.

The Elders believe, such a measure will save the party money and time.

But, some of the aspirants have dismissed the suggestion. One of them, former information minister Asamoah Boateng told Asempa FM, the proposal violates the constitution of the party.

However, Appiah-Menkah insists such a gesture will showcase a united party to the electorates ahead of the elections.

“In this country, it appears governments are changed every eight years. It happened under [John] Rawlings and [John] Kufuor but if we are not careful, these things we are doing are going to affect us in 2016,” he told Accra-based Okay FM.

The main opposition party has been in the news in recent times over some administrative changes being effected by its general secretary, Kwabena Agyepong and chairman, Paul Afoko.
