National Organizer of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) Kofi Adams says the biggest opposition party in the country is faced with unending internal wrangling which is irrelevant to the progress of the country due to lack of leaders.
Reacting to the recent raid on the headquarters of the NPP, Kofi Adams on Okay Fm’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Morning Show said the party is no more attractive to the youth and this has compelled them to rise up against their leaders.
“I think there are no leaders in the NPP anymore that is why those small boys are up against them because they are fed up with the problems in the party,” he asserted.
According to him, NPP after the administration of former President Kufuor was considered a formidable opposition party to help straighten and shape the direction of the government but rather it has become irrelevant to that course in this democratic dispensation.
After the party’s headquarters was raided Monday dawn, members of the opposition party have fingered the ruling government for masterminding the act because the faceless armed men were believed to be in military attire.
The suspects were granted bail by a Circuit Court in Accra, Wednesday.
The suspects, including one woman, were charged with unlawful entry, unlawful purpose on private premises and causing unlawful damage to the tune of GH¢28, 000.
They have all pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Kofi Adams could not understand why the NPP is pointing fingers at the NDC when some ‘powerful people’ in the NPP are the ones behind the raid as narrated by one of the suspects in court.
He maintained the NDC is rather focused on developing the country for Ghanaians and has no time to spend on getting involved in issues about the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“Even when these suspects have said why they ransacked the party’s headquarters, the NPP are deliberately accusing us wrongly. I think they are just desperate for power. PPP is even now attractive more than NPP because the party is now irrelevant to the progress of the country,” he asserted.
“We are in government and if something happens, we are the same people who will spend money to fix the mess and so why should we involve ourselves in this petty situation,” he declared.
