‘Akufo-Addo showing signs of weakness’


    Private Legal practitioner, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw has accused the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of showing signs of weakness by trying to intervene in issues affecting the New Patriotic Party  (NPP).

    According to the vociferous Lawyer, he has not been happy with the way the President jumps to the fray and attempts to solve all issues that affects the NPP.

    Gender Minister, Otiko Afisa Djaba and Northern Regional Chairman of the NPP, Bugri Naabu were invited to the seat of government, the Flagstaff House and were reprimanded for engaging in media exchanges which has resulted in the trading of accusations.

    While Otiko accused Bugri Naabu of accepting various forms of bribes including goats, cow and sheep and promising people non-existent political posts, Naabu on the other hand also accused Otiko and the Upper East Regional Minister of being deeply involved in the murder of late Upper East regional chairman of the party, Mahama Adams.

    The accusations have been the subject of several media discourse and this prompted the President to invite the two to meet him at the seat of government to answer questions.

    This move, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw said was not the best as it showed signs of weakness on the part of the President.

    He maintained that it was in the interest of the President to have allowed the leadership of the party to deal with the feud between the two.

    “Former President Mahama was doing same and that was condemned because it was weakening the NDC. Akufo-Addo has also started doing same but am sorry he has started showing signs of weakness,” he said.
