Attacks in our internal elections unnecessary – Dr Akoto Afriyie
An aspiring Flagbearer for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and former Minister of Agriculture, Dr Afriyie Akoto has bemoaned the attacks in the internal elections describing them as unnecessary.
He says political parties need the numbers, and it is therefore prudent that campaigns for internal elections should have been bereft of attacks.
Dr Afriyie Akoto of the belief that the attacks should be after the internal election and that the opposition NDC is the target for attacks and not persons within the NPP.
“If you’re campaigning and you attack a member of your political party, how can you call on the person? This is an issue that is of great concern to me. I am the only person who hasn’t attacked anyone in this campaign.
The NDC is the target, not our own members. As a political party, we need people. If you’re in this party and someone leaves, you go and bring them back, and that is what the NPP should stand for. I will bring back all the people who are peeved. I will also bring in people from the NDC to vote for the NPP.
I am bringing unity in order to help the country break the eight,” he said during his final rally.
