The Upper East Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Elvis Awonekai is being advised to take a chill pill, play his cards well and be considerate in the tone he uses when responding to or dealing with issues that are developing between the Regional Executives of the NPP and the striking Regional Communicators.
Jonathan Salifu Abdallah, a Regional Communication Team member of the NDC advised his friend not to bungle his bright future political career by burning bridges with the regional communicators who have been on strike since the appointment of Peter Ayinbisa as Regional Director of Communications.
Mr. Abdallah made a passionate appeal to his friend when he [Mr. Abdallah] spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, Thursday, July 7, 2022.
“Let me touch on my friend’s letter. My very good friend’s letter. Figo is one of the finest gentlemen you can find in the NPP in this region. We have been friends not today. He is one person I openly supported, but I think [he should watch] his tone. If this letter was actually written and signed by him, he is not setting a good path for himself.”
“I am only advising my brother to slow down. I know that sometimes, positions can overwhelm you but I do not want to believe that is what is happening to him. The tone of the letter is not healthy,” he said.
He said rather than be adversarial about the issues, the Regional Executives should find a way of dealing peacefully with the issues. The NDC communicator suggested also to the communicators that while the appointment of Peter Ayinbisa cannot be reversed both parties should meet and thrash out their issues.
“If something happens, you try as much as possible to resolve it as quickly as possible,” he said.
Mr. Abdallah insisted that the party is already on its way out of government.
“This party and government is already heading to a ditch. Nobody doubts that. Many people have said that this government cannot even survive in the elections. When it comes to their parliamentary primaries, you will see the number of people who would be scrambling for seats because the party is already moving out.”
