Communications Minister, Omane Boamah has described the press conference organized by the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as a ‘charade which was insignificant'.

According to him, Nana Akufo-Addo could have prevented all the infighting in the party but refused to pay attention to them which has subsequently escalated.

“Nana Akufo-Addo should not have allowed the NPP to get to this stage before coming out to preach such a charade peace to his members” he said.

Nana Addo on Friday addressed the party members through the press, urging all feuding factions to “cease fire” and allow peace to prevail.

The death of the NPP Upper East Regional Chairman has created controversies in the party with some calling on the National Chairman and General Secretary to step down.

There have been calls from several quarters for the Council of Elders, former president Kufuor and other stalwarts to intervene and bring the various factions to order.

NPP flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo has however advised members of the party to stop the internal wrangling adding that “the finger pointing, the name calling, the insults, the lies, the denigrating of past and current leaders must stop.”

But Mr. Boamah on Radio Gold’s current affairs program Alhaji Alhaji Saturday stressed the need for the flagbearer to have stepped his foot down to deal with the mayhem in the party even before organizing a press conference to preach peace.

“Under whose watch are all these wrangling in NPP happening, is it not Nana Addo and so why must he wait for such a long time before coming up with a press conference to preach unity?”

He stressed that “He was only trying to create peace with the hope that his political fortune can be achieved.  The NPP have forgotten about Adams Mahama death and all their doing is just running around to do something that is alien to the constitution”.

He said Nana Addo could have demonstrated his desire for peace by having the two beleaguered executives by his side during the speech.
