YEN.com.gh has gathered that the New Patriotic Party's National Council will on Wednesday (today) will meet to discuss the steps to handle the recent feud between Otiko Djaba, the Gender Minister and Daniel Bugri Naabu, the Northern Regional chairman of the NPP.
Nana Obiri Boahen, a deputy general secretary of the party spoke to Citi FM news and described the situation as 'unfortunate'
According to him, the party would hold a meeting to discuss the issue and determine the next course of action.
Meanwhile, the National Youth Organizer of the NPP, Sammy Awuku has stated that the party is prepared to sanction the two feuding party bigwigs.
"The party is angry about this development. We find this very disheartening, especially at a time when the President had been touring West African countries promoting free border trade, holding bilateral talks and chalking tremendous success in some of these areas. The party will take a very serious stance on the issue.
If you are a senior member of the party, both serving in government and serving in the party hierarchy and you think opening your mouth will not promote this government and the President then do not open your mouth," he said in an interview with Citi FM.
The party's decisions follow the recent verbal clashes between Otiko Djaba and Bugri Naabu after a brief confrontation in the Northern Region last week.
The Gender Minister Otiko Djaba had accused the Northern Regional NPP chairman of accepting bribes from people in the form of livestock with the promise of offering them positions in the government.
This followed the chairman's decision to suspend one of the party's women organizers, Hajia Safia over allegations of teaming up with Otiko to create unease in the party in the Northern Region.
Mr. Naabu's rebuttal of the accusation in a subsequent radio interview, alleged that the Gender Minister collaborated with the current Upper East Regional Minister in the murder of the former Upper East regional chairman of the party, Adams Mahama.
However, after the public disapproval of the back and forth verbal abuse between both individuals, Otiko Djaba rendered an apology to President Akufo-Addo and all Ghanaians for her actions.
In an interview with Joy News, Otiko stated, "It was totally out of order and I apologize to Ghanaians for what happened. I want to use this opportunity to apologize to all Ghanaians, but it is a lesson to each other and we need to respect each other and we need to respect women."
