Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has once agai
n counseled the 2016 flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to unite the Danquah-Busia-Dombo family or forget about winning the November 7 elections.
Obviously rubbishing persistent pronouncements by lackeys of the twice defeated presidential candidate that he will be third time lucky at the polls this time even without the input and support of persons perceived to be working against his bid, Mr Kufuor said the NPP can only win the upcoming election with a united front.
According to the most successful leader of the Danquah-Busia-Dombo fraternity, power will again elude Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP if the party goes into the election in its present fractured state.
Speaking on Accra based Onua Fm, Mr Kufuor said, although Ghanaians in general are calling for change because the National Democratic Congress, in his opinion, has not managed the country so well, he nevertheless, cautioned that if the NPP does not unite, victory would elude the party and that would be a big disappointment to Ghanaians.
Former President Kufuor, like many others in the NPP except Nana Akufo-Addo and his linchpins disagree; insisting that unity should be the watch word for the flag bearer of the biggest opposition party.
Reminding his party leaders that “heaven helps those who help themselves,” Mr Kufuor said winning the general elections would not fall like manna; he asserted, adding that the party would have to put in more efforts to attain power.
