- The NDC has urged Ghanaians to decline the apology offered by the NPP over the Otiko-Bugri feud
- They believe the NPP wants to cover up the allegations concerning the murder of Adams Mahama
- The NPP has however defended the reasons for the sanctions and new directives
The National Democratic Congress has refused to accept the apology from the Gender Minister, Otiko Djaba and the New Patriotic Party Northern Regional Chairman, Bugri Naabu.
YEN.com.gh gathered that the opposition party believes their apology is not satisfactory enough for especially the Ghanaian citizenry, as the NPP is just a fraction of the entire population.
Koku Anyidoho, the deputy general secretary of the NDC in an interview on Citi News, said the NPP may think the matter was settled, but he called for the citizenry to decline the 'lame apologies' the party offered.
Mr. Anyidoho was remarking on the sanctions on Otiko Djaba and Bugri Naabu, whereby they were ordered to give their apology to the party and the general public in writing, following their feud in the past few days.
The NPP National Council after their meeting on Wednesday, ordered the two to give their apology, and further directed all party members in ministerial positions to resign from their party posts.
This follows the verbal clash between the Gender minister and the Northern Regional chairman of the NPP, where each side threw scathing accusations at the other about corruption and acts of malice.
Mr. Anyidoho also believes that if Otiko is not made to leave her position as minister, it could spell doom for the Akufo-Addo administration.
The NDC secretary further accused the NPP of attempting to bury the allegations brought forth by Bugri Naabu over the murder case of the former Upper East Regional Minister, Bugri Naabu.
"The Ghana Bar Association is dead silent on such a serious issue as Bugri Naabu pointing fingers at Otiko Djaba and Rockson Bukari for being complicit in the murder of Chairman Adams.
So the NPP can decide to pull a veil over the unfortunate, vulgar and dangerous utterances of Otiko Djaba and Bugri Naabu but it does not stop Ghanaians from discussing the issues and will not stop the NDC from firing the right arrows and continuing to raise these issues till we get a proper conclusion of these matters," he said in his interview with Citi FM.
Meanwhile the NPP has defended its decision over the Bugri-Otiko feud.
According to the National Youth Organizer of the party, Sammy Awuku, both party members were bonded to maintain good conduct going forward, a sanction which he stated if failed to be followed will lead to more serious reprimands from the party's National Council.
