A Senior Lecturer at the University of Cape Coast, Dr. Jonathan Asante Otchere has described President Akufo-Addo as two politicians who are very divisive in their political activities.

His comments comes after the National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Stephen Ayesu Ntim stated that the party has committed to reconciling Kwabena Owusu Aduomi, the former Ejisu Member of Parliament and runner-up in Tuesday’s Ejisu by-election, with the party.

He emphasized Mr Aduomi’s significance to the NPP and stated his determination to reintegrate him into the party.

Mr Aduomi, who served three terms as an NPP MP for Ejisu, opted to contest as an Independent Candidate in the by-election.

His decision stemmed from concerns about the NPP’s handling of the delegates’ album for constituency executive elections, which he believed compromised the party’s integrity and fairness.

Some NPP members, including President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia accused Aduomi of betraying the NPP and speculated that he had defected to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Commenting further in an interview with Bonohene Baffuor Awuah on Ghana Kasa show on Kasapa 102.5FM, Dr. Asante Otchere said both President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia lack the spirit of reconciliation which is very important in the game of politics.

“If you listen to the kind of things the President and the Vice President said about Aduomi, it will be difficult for the former MP to reconcile with the NPP. The Vice President accused him of being NDC member. That was very bad, just because he’s some disagreement with the NPP and decided to contest against the party.

“Post election if you listen to what the National Chairman, Stephen Ntim has said it is wonderful, quite reconciliatory. But if you listen to the President and Vice President, these are two individuals who are very divisive. The President is also very vindictive, he does not forgive anyone who does anything against him. That is how he is. So, the decision is for Kwabena Owusu Aduomi to make. If he feels that the environment will allow him to project himself in terms of his political career why not. If not, and politics is about timing, if you get your timing right, you’ll get your result right.”
