In the same vein, the party wishes to call on its militants to continue to demonstrate the highest standards of political maturity and foresight by not engaging in politics of insults, character assassination, tribalism and personal attacks. We must always remember that the NPP was founded on the principles of respect for the rule of law and the undiluted faith in the tenets of democratic governance.”
