Let’s not break the hearts of disillusioned Ghanaians – Karbo to NPP

Former National Youth Organizer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Anthony Karbo is calling on the party leadership to stop breaking the hearts of ‘disillusioned’ Ghanaians who are looking up to them for solace.

According to him, a vibrant party like the NPP dominated by intellectuals should be able to settle all differences in-house without “attracting negative publicity to ourselves”.

“The duty of an opposition party is to keep the government on its toes and not to step on one another’s toes,” Karbo opined.

The renewed internal wrangling in the NPP came about after the General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong, asked the party’s deputy Communications Director, Mr. Perry Okudzeto to take his two years accumulated leave effective Monday 18th August, 2014.

This has incurred the wrath of some national executives who have described the “unilateral action” of the General Secretary as unconstitutional.

The NPP Northern regional Chairman, Bugri Naabu incensed by the development has called on the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) to suspend Kwabena Agyepong to serve as a deterrent to others.

Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Monday, Anthony Karbo said though the General Secretary has flouted the party’s constitution, “we should not wash our dirty linen in public”.

He noted that, in spite of the fact that the NPP is a human institution, “we should be able to resolve our issues amicably as a family”.

Anthony Karbo could not fathom why a party which professes to be an alternative government is rather ‘fighting’ over trivial issues.

“Ghanaians are suffering under this incompetent Mahama-led administration and as a responsible opposition we must keep it on its toes rather than concentrating on such trivial issues” he bemoaned.

The former youth leader believes the NPP as a responsible opposition should rather keep government on its toes than fighting one another.

Anthony Karbo called for mutual respect among members and implored them to do away with acrimony for a formidable front in the 2016 general elections.
