Former President John Agyekum Kufuor says he has observed that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) of today differs significantly from what it used to be.
According to him, there is deep-seated factionalism within the elephant family.
He made the remarks in an interview with Accra-based TV3.
He has therefore advised the party to carefully assess its activities as it moves forward.
The former head of state lamented that the sense of commitment he once felt within the party seems to have waned.
To address this, he has proposed that the party practice proper democracy and inclusivity over factionalism.
“The way I feel it, I don’t sense the same strong commitment. I have likened commitment to almost a religion. I don’t sense that now. We are talking proper democracy, an inclusive one, you wouldn’t emphasise factions.”
“Once the practice of selecting constituency or [a] national, you wouldn’t be so divisive and emphasising faction. He belongs to that side so no cooperation. You do that you are dividing the force,” he stated.
