The Acting Communication Director of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Seth Ofori has told The Chronicle that the leadership of the party has started holding closed door meetings with Dr. Ekow Spio Garbrah and Mr. Ato Ahwoi, both leading members of the party.

The two party stalwarts were recently engaged in a media war, which was ignited by the publication of an article in the Daily Graphic, written by Dr. Spio Garbrah, the CEO of the Commonwealth Telecommunication Organisation (CTO). According to Mr. Ofori, the party was not happy with the media war, hence its decision to intervene and ensure that there is total peace in the ruling party.
According to him, the decision to call a truce and prevent the two from making further public comments should not be misinterpreted to mean that they have been gagged by the party.

Mr. Seth Ofori further told The Chronicle that details of the closed door meeting would be made public at the appropriate time, and that supporters of the party would not be kept in the dark over the issue.
He urged all party members to refrain from making comments which have the tendency of bringing division into the party.

Meanwhile, the partys Executive Committee has expressed disgust at the twist and turns of the ensuing heated exchanges between Dr. Spio Garbrah and Mr. Ato Ahwoi, and called for a cease fire.

In the statement signed by party Chairman, Dr. Kwabena Agyei, the Committee noted While the party tolerates and encourages progressive debate and expression of divergent views on matters relating to the performance of the government and party in general, it nevertheless disapproves of criticisms and utterances that tend to bring the government and the party into disrepute and ridicule.
Equally so, we eschew political debates that degenerate into personal attacks.

For this reason, the NDC as a party has advised the two leading members to desist from any further utterances that could inflame passions and undermine the unity of the party. The leadership further appealed to the rank and file to remain calm and steadfast in their resolve to build a strong and united NDC.
