Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper has accused old guards in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) of sabotaging the Paul Afoko regime.
Speaking on Alhaji and Alhaji on Radio Gold Saturday, Kwesi Pratt said for a party that over the past two elections managed to win convincingly in only one region and marginally in another region, this development is not healthy.
NPP “ought to be worried about its image and that is also the reason why the internal struggles in the NPP worry me because if you listen to current National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party and several of the officers who have been elected, Kwabena Agyei Agyapong and the others, their project was to give the NPP a new national image, that was the basis of their campaign.
“Now having been in office for a few months, the old traditional forces who worked to destroy the image of the NPP, are doing everything possible to make the Afoko regime incapable of achieving its objective. They are subverting the Afoko regime internally,” Kwesi Pratt said.
The Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper lamented that one of the old forces recently issued a statement calling the new executives of the NPP useless.
“So they don’t even want their new executives to succeed. They are cutting them to pieces, they want to go to back to their old ways, they want to win only in one region,” he said.
Kwesi Pratt was of the view that the NPP is “happy about that situation” but he feels “so sad about this,” unhealthy development in the party.
