The outspoken New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa, P. C Appiah Ofori, has said the party’s flagbearer is suffering from indecision and confusion hence the delay in announcing a running a mate.

Mr. Appiah Ofori, who has declared open support for Alhaji M. N. D Jawula to partner Nana Addo for the 2012 general elections, said he is glad that the elders of the party are arguing in the same line as him although the flagbearer is thinking otherwise.

The NPP flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, on Tuesday made a last minute move described by close associates and top party executives as “a clever decision” aimed at ensuring his party makes a lot more political capital out of the ongoing Woyome saga by deferring the naming of his running mate for this year’s presidential elections until March.

However, the forthright lawmaker said the move is rather a confused and indecisive one which if not addressed immediately will have dire consequences on the party.

He said the situation has led to widespread consultations within the party beginning with an emergency meeting with all MPs of the party to find a solution.

“He is totally confused,” Mr. Ofori told Citi News. “He insists on picking Bawumia and I am happy to know that most of the members of the Council of Elders of the party don’t support that. ”

“He insists on his and majority of the people including myself oppose to it even though he has the right, but he does that with consultations with the Council of Elders and most of the elders are saying no… So I think he needs time to get the people to support him,” he added.
