Nana Akufo-Addo has issued a stern warning to all members of the New Patriotic Party to desist from discussing internal matters on the media landscape, adding such behaviour will affect the fortunes of the party in the run-up to the 2016 elections.

“I am very concerned about what is happening (in the party). I have made a clear decision in my mind that we will have to resolve these issues. The radio campaign in our party is not helping any of us. Let us stop discussing NPP matters on the radio,” the NPP flagbearer said during his “Rise and Build” tour in Oda in the Eastern region.

Nana Akufo-Addo expressed his deep concern about the raging ‘media battle’ being waged by some members of the party on internal party issues.

He urged NPP members not to be provoked into responding to any issue bordering on internal party matters, convinced that “if no one gives any credence to the matters that are being discussed, that matter will die. When responses to these issues come from us that is when the matter degenerates.”

The general secretary of the Elephant family, Kwabena Agyepong, took to the media Monday to vent his spleen on Nana Addo and some party executives, alleging they are working against him. He revealed he was unaware of the ‘Rise and Build’ tour and only got to know of it on the internet.

“They have tried to blame me for several things I have no idea about. I have tried all I can to advance the cause of Nana Addo but my efforts are not being appreciated. This is very disheartening and sad,” Agyepong said in an interview with Fiifi Banson of Kasapa 102.3FM.

He added: “I have always tried to accompany Nana Addo everywhere he goes. You’ll recall that when the unfortunate incident happened at the Goil Filing station at Circle, I was there with Nana, but what you don’t know is that after we had planned to go there, the car which was to convey us to the incident scene took off before I got to our supposed meeting at the time we had agreed. I had to drive and rush to meet Nana Addo at Circle. The same thing happened when we were going to James Town, I had to find my way there.

However, Nana Akufo-Addo admonished NPP members to “make a resolution (that) no more radio campaign in the NPP. The problems will have to be resolved.”
