Daniel Bugri Naabu, the Northern Regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party has rendered his apologies to the party and President Akufo-Addo, following the meeting of the NPP National Council.
According to a report by Starr FM, Mr. Naabu in a letter, apologized for his conduct and pledged to maintain good behavior.
"I repeat unreservedly that, such conduct would never be repeated. It is my sincere prayer that, I would never repeat such a conduct again. It was due to extreme anger and provocation that I uttered those words as I do not have any proof or evidence to support those allegations
I very much regret for the embarrassment and inconvenience caused to the leadership of the party and the country as a whole. Hope this apology would be accepted by all and sundry," the letter added.
The NPP National Council has in a recent meeting demanded all members in government positions to resign from their party posts.
Their directive was in response to the feud between the Gender minister and the Northern Regional chairman of the party.
Bugri Naabu and Otiko Djaba had recently topped the headlines, with their verbal clashes, where each side flung scathing accusations at the other over corruption and suspected acts of malice.
Otiko Djaba had accused the NPP chairman of accepting bribes in the form of livestock with the promise of offering government positions.
Bugri Naabu in a subsequent interview also alleged that Otiko conspired with the Upper East Regional Minister, Rockson Bukari in the murder of the former Upper East Regional NPP chairman, Adams Mahama.
In a statement signed by the acting general secretary of the party, John Boadu, the party reprimanded the two feuding party members and demanded that moving forward, they were to be on their best behavior.
“All Party Office holders (elected or appointed) who have second executive positions in government should vacate their Party positions for substantive officers appointed to fill in," the statement added.
