Ex-President Kufour reveals shocking reasons why NPP is divided

Former President John Agyekum Kuffour has expressed worry about the current situation of the New Patriotic Party.

Speaking in an interview with TV3, the former President indicated that members of the New Patriotic Party are gradually losing interest in the commitment that existed a few years ago.

He adds that the feeling of commitment among party members is no longer felt and it’s a cause for worry.

“The commitment to liberal democratic principles might not be as pure and the same as it used to be, say around 1992. Now, I don’t think that commitment is the same. The way I feel it, I don’t sense the same feeling, I likened earlier commitment to a religion, I don’t sense that now,” he indicated.

He adds that what have triggered the current situation of the party is factionalism.  “I sense too much talk about factionalism within the group. Proper democracy is an inclusive one and you wouldn’t emphasize factions”, he indicated.

He added that internal elections of the party must be treated with all the seriousness it deserves. He adds that most of the factions that have evolve over the years in the party is as a results of internal elections and that must be tackled.

“During elections across the party, you wouldn’t be so divisive and be emphasizing factions. He belongs to that side so no cooperation. If you do that you are diving the force. The numerical force that you need for any democratic practice,” he added.
