The Member of Parliament (MP) for Okere in the Eastern Region, who doubles as the Minority Chief Whip, Dan Kweku Botwe, has paid a three-day visit to Bolgatanga, the Upper East Regional capital to mourn with the family of the late regional chairman Adams Mahama.
Mr Botwe said he heard the shocking news of Chairman Adams’ death in Abuja, Nigeria during an ECOWAS parliamentary session. He bemoaned the escalating political violence and its concomitant reprisals demeaning the Ghanaian body politic and called for a change of direction.
He urged the party loyalists to be calm and allow the law to take its due course in bringing the perpetrators to book.
He entreated all to allow the party structures to work while a lasting solution is found to the problems confronting the party.
Commenting on his relationship with the deceased, Hon Dan Botwe said the late regional chairman was a trusted personal friend, a colleague and close confidant with whom he had several working relationships as compatriots since 2000.
Mr Adams, he said, was a true party man, a rare patriot who had tremendously supported the party not only in his region but the NPP as a whole.
He noted that the late chairman was a resourceful individual who had enormous respect for everyone and who had resolved to work hard to help the party win back power in 2016.
The Minority Chief Whip also met with some party executives in the region including Col Milla, the Upper East regional secretary of the NPP, Alhaji Nuhu, Rockson Bukari, former Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) and they all averred to be motivated by the death of the regional chairman to foster unity, brotherliness and a sense of purpose in the party to win the 2016 general elections.
‘The most befitting tribute to be given to our brother Chairman Adams is to win the 2016 general elections. It would be the greatest honour done him,’ Dan Botwe posited.
Those who accompanied him on the trip included the immediate-past NPP Regional Secretary of the Northern Region, Dr. Clifford Braimah and the Personal Assistant and immediate-past National Youth Organizer of the NPP, Emmanuel Attafuah- Danso
