The suspended National Chairman of the main opposition New Patriotic Party Paul Afoko is asking the public to disregard the notice of his suspension by the party.
The Communications director of the NPP Nana Akomea in a statement after a national executive committee (NEC) Friday said Mr Afoko has been suspended following a petition of misconduct against him by the party’s council of elders.
But in a counter statement signed by his spokesperson Nana Yaw Osei, the embattled chairman said the decision by the NEC is not binding on him.
“We want to state in unequivocal terms that the improperly constituted National Disciplinary Committee cannot recommend any indefinite suspension of Mr Afoko to the National Executive Committee whose chairman did not call the meeting that purportedly endorsed the so-called decision of the national disciplinary committee.
“We insist that an improperly called meeting of the NEC cannot legally deliberate on any matter for it to have proper effect of binding on Mr Afoko as the national chair.
“The general public is entreated to treat the statement from Nana Akomea with the contempt is deserves and disregard same,” the stated noted.
