A Deputy Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has fired back at Mr. Kwame Pianim, an outspoken politician, economist, investment consultant and NPP Stalwart for his recent comments about the leadership of the party.

Mr. Pianim speaking in an exclusive interview with Africawatch blamed the NPP national executives for exhibiting “intellectual and mental laziness” and therefore called for “an emergency national congress of the party to decide on its boycott of certain key national events including the vetting of ministerial nominees of President John Mahama and his State of the Nation Address" and other activities headlining the President.

Speaking in an interview with Joy FM, an Accra-based radio station, he explained that the NPP’s boycott which the leadership says is in furtherance of the party’s position regarding the 2012 Presidential elections, for which they are challenging the results at the Supreme Court in hope to overturn the legitimacy of President Mahama, poses danger to the future of the party.

According to him, the NPP leadership is “not thinking logically” and so, is going down “a dangerous slope” as a result of the decision to distance themselves from all events of President John Mahama.

Taking keen notice of his comments, John Boadu doubts the logic in Mr. Pianim’s statement as regards to the party’s decision and so, stated categorically that the NPP bigwig is “also exhibiting laziness and lack of intellectualism.”

Explaining further in an interview with Peacefmonline.com, he downplayed Mr. Pianim’s call on the party’s leadership to hold an emergency congress to address the concerns raised, stating that; “For one to call for an emergency congress, I don’t know whether he’s aware of the cost of having an emergency congress. I don’t know whether he is aware…Even if we still don’t have any case in court, we’ve not yet gotten to a position where congresses across board will be done. So, nobody is wasting anybody’s time.”

John Boadu believes the comments by the member of the party are attempts to distract the NPP from their course to delegitimize the President who the petitioners; Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Dr. Mahamudu and Jake Obetsebi in the Presidential election case before the Supreme Court claim connived with the Electoral Commission to rig the December 7 and 8 polls.

He therefore advised the NPP to stay focused because “some of these things are distraction.

Some of these things, if you are not very careful will let you concentrate your efforts on things that don’t matter because we are in this country where we’re bedevilled with severe epileptic energy crises.”
