Former President John Agyekum Kufour has called on the members of the

New Patriotic Party (NPP) to stop tearing the party apart in media

over the death of Alhaji Adams Mahama, the party's Upper East regional


He cautioned party members against "acrimonious accusations in the

media" which he said "only serve to further divide their ranks and

allow heir detractors to infiltrate them."

In a statement signed by his spokepeson, Frank Agyekum, the former

President said he finds it disquieting that issues that must

beresolved in accordance with laid down procedures of the party's

constitution are constantly being discussed in the media without

regard to the overall effect on its fortunes.

The former President who is currently out of the country reiterated

the need for calm and circumspection in the affairs of the party.

He posited that the NPP needs to unite not only for its own good but

for that of the entire nation that is looking up to it as the

alternative government The Ex-President urged that the painful and

untimely passing away of Alhaji Mahama, should be used to unite the

party and not tear it apart.

He further appealed that the "national investigative system that has

already taken charge of the process be allowed to work rather than the

party seeming to preempt the outcome."

NPP Chairman in the Upper East Region, Adam Mahama died after he was

ambushed and attacked with acid.

His death has caused some confusion in the party with many calling for

the resignation of National Chairman of the party, Paul Afoko, and

General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong.

This is because some believe the death was triggered by events that

took place prior to the attack on Adam Mahama.
