Former General Secretary of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Dan Kwaku Botwe has fired back over comments made by founding party member Kwame Pianim over the Parliamentary Minority’s decision to boycott business relating directly to the presidency.

Mr Botwe, who is also a Member of Parliament (MP) for the Okere Constituency of the Eastern Region, says no serious, logically minded member of the party would make a statement like Mr Pianim did.

The founding member had told Joy FM on Monday that the Minority’s decision to continuously boycott government business is “illogical.”

According to Mr Pianim, “the situation where NPP MPs boycott en masse all actions of President John Mahama whose legitimacy the party is contesting in court, was creating credibility problems for the opposition party.”

But speaking Monday on Adom FM’s Dea Mehunu programme, which was also broadcast live on Asempa FM, Mr Botwe insisted that no serious member of a political group like the NPP would object to a collective decision made by the party.

The Okere MP, who doubles as Minority Chief Whip in Parliament, said it was wrong for Mr Pinaim to use the media to address his concerns.

He explained that the Minority boycotted President Mahama’s inauguration and State of the Nation Address based on a decision made by party leadership. He said every true NPP member is bound to accept and abide by that decision until leadership says otherwise.
