The Upper East Regional Minister, Albert Abongo has told supporters of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) not take the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) serious because the party has no leadership. According to him, a party with leadership crisis cannot win an election.
Addressing members and supporters of the NDC Sunday October 16, 2016 at Sumbrungu where NDC parliamentary candidate for Bolgatanga Central constituency launched his campaign, Mr. Abongo said a party that cannot manage its internal leadership crisis is not worth forming a government to lead the nation.
“Do they have a national chairman? Do they have a General Secretary? Do they have a regional chairman [for Upper East]? So how can they manage this country?
Mr. Abongo, who doubles as the Member of Parliament for Bongo Constituency, therefore urged supporters of the NDC to give their full support to the party to retain power in the December polls.
The national chairman of the NPP, Paul Afoko and General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong are both on suspension while Adams Mahama, was killed barely one year after he was elected as Upper East Regional chairman.
The governing NDC continues to use the happenings in the NPP that led to the suspensions of the two national leaders and the death of Chairman Adams to mean the opposition party has no leadership because it cannot manage its internal problems.
But the NPP is unfazed with the NDC’s assertion as the former believes Freddie Blay and John Boadu are doing well in their acting capacities as National Chairman and General Secretary respectively.
