The acting chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay has written to inform the Electoral Commission to stop dealing with suspended National Chairman Paul Afoko.
In a letter dated October 28, 2015 to the EC, the NPP noted that “Mr Fredie Blay has been mandated henceforth to act as National Chairman of the NPP."
"In consequence, all correspondence, records and signatures concerning the activities of the party should reflect this change," the three-paragraph letter concluded.
Mr. Afoko on day one of the Electoral Commission forum on the voters register was seen in the company of other top NPP officials like; Kwabena Agyapong, Haruna Esseku, Appiah Menkah and others.
In an interview with the media on Thursday at the EC forum, Mr. Afoko said: “I’m here as the Chairman of the NPP, I am here leading the team to ensure that the views of our party are heard; to ensure that we push through the reforms that we require for next year’s elections”.
“Undoubtedly, the national chairman is Mr. Paul A. Afoko and the General Secretary is Mr. Kwabena Agyei Agyepong,” he concluded.
Mr. Afoko has been contesting his suspension and is expected to go to court if an appeal to the National Council of the NPP fails.
The NEC of the NPP last week endorsed a Disciplinary Committee recommendation to suspend Paul Afoko for misconduct and unconstitutional behaviour.
