A review will be disrespecting Akufo-Addo -Tarzan

Suspended founder member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobby, says the party leadership would be disrespecting their flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, if they seek review of the Supreme Court judgement on the election petition.
According to him, Akufo-Addo’s decision not to seek review on the dismissed petition which challenged the legitimacy of President John Mahama should be respected by all members including the party's National Leadership.

Dr. Wereko-Brobby was reacting to the National Executive Committee’s (NEC) defiance of Akufo-Addo’s position.

The NPP has set up a three member committee made up of former Attorney-Generals, Papa Owusu Ankomah, Joe Ghartey and Ayikoi Otoo, to review the August 29 ruling of the Supreme Court .

There are suggestions that the NEC, which is the highest decision making body in the NPP, may order Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia (second petitioner) or party chairman Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey (third petitioner) to file for a review if the committee finds it necessary.

But in an exclusive interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme on Wednesday, Dr. Wereko-Brobby said a review of the Supreme Court judgement is unnecessary.

He noted that confusion over whether to go for review or not should never arise among the leadership of the NPP.

"The debate [for review] must come to an end now because Nana Akufo-Addo has conceded. We are in politics to provide leadership [but] everything we are doing is failing to provide leadership; we are listening to the sound of our boring voices" he bemoaned.

Tarzan as he is popularly called, said Jakes’s claim that a review will depend on the findings of the three member committee cast a slur on Akufo-Addo’s leadership of the NPP.

"I am surprised the chairman of the party will come out and say that whether we decide to go for review or not will depend on the committee’s study.Is Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey telling me that he will go against Nana Akufo-Addo’s decision?" he quizzed.

Tarzan believes it is time the National Leadership of the NPP put the court hearing behind them and rebuild the party structures ahead of the 2016 general elections.
