It’s sad and worrying, that, because of internal party contest, some individuals in the party will deliberately impugn, malign and soil the image of distinguished personalities in the party. We shouldn’t tolerate such behaviors.
The needless mudslinging in the campaign to elect the flagbearer of the party for the next general election has become one too many and must be roundly condemned by faithfuls of the party. We should be bold and tell all such persons to desist from such shameful behavior.
Madam Akosua Frema Opare, Chief of Staff
Our campaign for our preferred candidate must be devoid of insults, abuse and mudslinging. We must campaign on the capabilities and competences of our preferred candidate. That’s the way to win an election and not the deliberate attempt at throwing mud at noble personalities.

The attack on the Chief of Staff by Horpeson Adorye, a key figure in the Alan Kyeremateng’s campaign architecture, accusing the former of manipulating the outcome of the super delegates conference held on Saturday, 26/08/23 by financially inducing delegates, was disgusting and very unfortunate.
Sadly, the allegation was unfounded, unmeritorious and deliberately fabricated to dent the reputation of the Chief of Staff and consequently court public disaffection against her. This is bad, wicked, malicious and evil.
Horpeson, might think he’s damaging the integrity of the Chief of Staff. What he doesn’t know, or he knows but doesn’t care a hoot about, is the effect of his lies on the image of the party and its electoral fortunes.
It’s refreshing the disciplinary committee of the party has invited him to provide evidence to back his unfounded and baseless allegation, but for me and others, apart from needlessly injuring the reputation of the Chief of Staff, he has further caused the party a lot of damage and provided needless ammunition for the opposition to fire from their empty guns.
You don’t deliberately attempt to destroy your party because your preferred candidate couldn’t perform to expectation. This is an unacceptable behavior from a member of an organization whose principal aim transcends personal interests and considerations.
I expect Horpeson Adorye to render an unqualified apology to the Chief of Staff for deliberately and needlessly denting her integrity and hard-earned reputation.
In this crucial campaign to elect a standard-bearer to lead the party to make history by forming the government on three consecutive terms, the least we can do to realize that difficult task is to eschew all acts and behaviors that can compromise that desired end.
We should be mindful of what we say. We should be mindful of what we do. In fact, we should engage in behaviors and actions that will unite the party, bring us closer to the eventual winner so that, irrespective of our differences and preferences, we can work collectively and cooperatively to win the upcoming general elections.
God bless Ghana. God bless the NPP.
