Outspoken member of the opposition New Patriotic Party Arthur Kobina Kennedy has expressively questioned the leadership style of the party’s flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo.
According to him, Nana Addo has not shown leadership in uniting the NPP which has been hit with internal bickering over the last year.
Mr. Kennedy also disclosed that he has lost respect for the flagbearer. “No, I don’t respect Nana Addo,” he responded to a question by Morning Starr host Nii Arday Clegg in an interview Friday.
“I do not think that he is a respectful democratic leader and someone who respects democracy…if you ask me from the bottom of my heart whether I respect Nana Akufo-Addo as a leader then I will say no, I don’t, I respect him as an elder of the party,” Dr. Kennedy added.
He has also in a strongly worded statement condemned the suspension of Kwabena Agyepong and Sammy Crabbe.
According to him the decision only weakens the party and renders it ineffective to contest its main opponent, the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2016 general elections.
"The suspension of Afoko effectively tied our right hand behind is. The suspension of Crabbe and KAA will tie the other hand. By the time we are done, the NDC will not need to rig the 2016 elections– we would have won it for them," he said in a statement.
