- Kweku Baako has called for sanctions on Bugri Naabu and Otiko Djaba
- He argues that their conduct damages the reputation of the party
- The NPP national council will meet today to decide their fate
Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, the editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper has commented on the current feud between the New Patriotic Party's Bugri Naabu and Otiko Djaba.
According to the veteran journalist, both politicians needed to be sanctioned, and compelled to back their various allegations against each other.
He was speaking on Peace FM on Wednesday when he said, "As for the minister, she must be compelled, challenged and confronted to provide something of evidential value to back up her allegation that the regional chairman takes cows and goats in order to influence appointments of MMDCEs. Nothing short of that will help the situation."
Mr. Baako described the two politicians as 'walking disasters' due to their conduct, especially with the verbal clashes between them over the past few days.
He further called for a probe into Bugri Naabu's accusations against the Gender minister.
Mr. Baako argued that the NPP needed to discipline the Northern Regional Chairman because, "what he is doing brings the party’s name or image into disrepute and they have ways to deal with that in the party’s constitution. It is too early in the day for the NPP government. These are the things you cure quickly. You cut off the head of the snake if it is troubling you."
Over the past few days, the Gender Minister Otiko Djaba and Bugri Naabu have engaged in troubling verbal clashes.
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, following the suspension of a party women's organizer, Hajia Safia.
Refuting Otiko's accusations in an interview, Bugri Naabu alleged that Otiko conspired with the current Upper Regional Minister, Rockson Bukari in the murder of the former Upper East Regional NPP chairman, Adams Mahama.
Mr. Naabu has however retracted and apologized for his comments, following a 48-hour ultimatum from the legal representation of Hon. Rockson Bukari.
Meanwhile the National Council of the NPP will hold a meeting to discuss the appropriate course of action over the situation between Bugri Naabu and Otiko Djaba.
