The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been sued by three of its members over the suspension of Paul Afoko.
The three; Stephen Owusu, Joseph Oppong Boadi and Tweneboah Kodua Emmanuel are praying the court to nullify the order suspending NPP’s national chairman.
The suit named 30 bigwigs in the NPP as defendants; they include- former President John Agyekum Kuffuor, the party’s flagbearer, Nana akufo-Addo, Minority Leader Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, etc.
“Take notice that counsel for plaintiffs/applicants praying this honourable court for an order of interculotory against the defendant/respondent, their assigns and privys, agents, servants, workmen, allottess, grantees and successors in interest, other alienees, and relations whatsoever and howsoever described to restrain them from convening a meeting of the NEC of the NPP or any other such meeting, attending such a meeting or otherwise taking any disciplinary action against the chairman of the party until this dispute is finally determined and for such further other(s) as this honourable court may deem fit,” the injunction application stated.
The plaintiffs secured the injunction earlier Friday to stop the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting that unanimously suspended Mr. Afoko. But the notice did not reach any member of NEC on time.
