Embattled national chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Mr Paul Awentami Afoko, has called on members of the party to emulate the life of the late J.B. Danquah-Adu by promoting unity.

He made the statement when he addressed journalists at the funeral of the MP at Old-Tafo in the Eastern Region last Saturday.

The late Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North Constituency, Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu, was buried on Saturday, April 16, at his hometown, Old Tafo.

Mr Afoko recalled how the MP helped him win the NPP chairmanship in Tamale.

“Contrary to what people think, JB was always with me. In fact, he is one of the people who helped strategise for me to become chairman of the party. He worked very closely with me…I tell you what — I have lost a great friend," Mr Afoko indicated.

He said the MP and  Jake Otanka Obetsebi Lamptey, the immediate past Chairman of the NPP who is also now deceased, always tried to get people who were not in agreement to work together.

The unifying values of the two, according to Mr Afoko, should get NPP united ahead of the general election in November.

“He is not the first person to have talked about unity, as we speak today, Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey is also lying in the morgue, and he also talked about unity,” Mr Afoko said.

He said the lessons from these two great people of the NPP would always be there for people to learn.
