The New Patriotic Party has suspended one of its key members, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe.
According to the party the move is to instill discipline in the party. The NPP in 2015 suspended a number of top hierarchy members, including – National Chairman, Paul Afoko; General Seretary, Kwabena Agyepong as well as 2nd Vice Chairman Sammy Crabbe.
Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe’s suspension comes on the back of a petition by Stephen Asante, accusing him [ Dr Tamakloe ] of conducting himself in a way that undermined the peace and unity within the party.
The decision to suspend Dr Tamakloe was taken by the Regional Chairman of the party Ishmael Ashitey following a petition brought before the party by a member in the Ayawaso Constituency.
Dr Tamakloe is alleged to have attacked the party's flagbearer of not doing enough to resolve the crisis in the party which has led to the suspension of three national officers including the Chairman, Paul Afoko and General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong.
Meanwhile, in a strongly worded statement, Dr Tamakloe said he will treat the letter of suspension with all the contempt it deserves and is ready to fight any executive pound-for-pound.
“As a statesman, in recent times, I have heeded counsel not to speak on party matters. However, I have never retreated from a fight so I will respond pound for pound," the statement said.
