Member of Parliament for Effutu, Alexander Afenyo-Markins has criticized for NPP General Secretary Nana Ohene-Ntow accusing him of speaking publicly only when the party has internal wrangling.

According to him, Nana Ohene Ntow has the capacity and competence to situate the NPP agenda for winning the 2016 elections by way of his acclaimed communications skills and media expertise, but sadly he has decided to sit on the fence and become a spectator.

Speaking on Joy FM, MultiTV news analysis programme, Newsfile Saturday Hon. Afenyo Markin stated that such attitude will not inure to the party’s quest to win the upcoming elections.

“This man [Ohene-Ntow] is an eloquent communicator, if you see the competence with which he analyses issues, you would expect that this man would be in the forefront in leading the chart, helping the party’s cause.

“My only problem I have with Ohene-Ntow is that I only hear his voice when we have internal issues coming up….party communicators are overstretched when there are people in this party who for whatever reason, they have pulled back, but when there is an internal matter you hear their voices.” Hon. Markin noted.

The largest opposition party has seen increased tension within in one month, during which its Northern Regional Minister, Adams Mahama lost his life following an acid attack on him by some alleged assailants one of who is a brother of the National Chairman and is currently being prosecuted at the court.

The unfortunate incident sparked uproar in the party with seven out of the ten regions calling for the resignation of National Chairman Paul Afoko and General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong both of who are suspected by some party members of working against the victory of Nana Akufo Addo in the impending 2016 elections.

The Party’s Presidential Candidate Nana Akufo Addo has called for a cease fire and unity in the NPP to ensure that the party wins the upcoming general elections to salvage Ghanaians from the worsening economic crises that has been caused by the abysmal performance of the ruling NDC government. Anim
