The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has instructed its communicators to refrain from responding or commenting on all matters related to the press conference addressed by suspended national chairman, Paul Afoko.
According to a statement signed by the party’s Communications Director, Nana Akomea Mr. Afoko and his matter in in court. “The issues Mr Afoko raised are issues before the courts of Ghana, brought before the courts by Messrs Tweneboa Kodua and two others, represented by the same lawyers representing Mr Afoko.”
Mr. Paul Afoko on Wednesday spoke publicly since his suspension and he reiterated that he is going to court to because the NPP’s national council have float the constitution of the party.
“The decision is arbitrary and unlawful and constitutes a substantial threat to our vision and a threat to our freedom of expression and association and danger to our party’s values. It’s illogical to suspend officers who are supposed to work and win elections. Such attitude constitutes an attack on the party’s fortunes,” Afoko stressed.
But the NPP statement noted that: “Indeed, Mr Afoko made reference to these court matters when he issued a message on Monday 2nd November, 2015, to members of the NPP National Council urging them to stay away from a National Council meeting on basis of this court action.”
