The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has warned and directed all its communicators to refrain commenting on recent issues raised by suspended National Chairman Paul Afoko.
According to the NPP “the communication Directorate has taken note of the desire of many communicators to respond forcefully to comments made by Mr Paul Afoko in a television interview on Saturday.”
“The directorate however cautions all communicators not to be distracted by Mr Afoko’s comments. Mr Afoko himself has taken his grievances to court. The party will respond to him in court,” a statement signed by NPP Deputy Communications Director, Perry Okudzeto said.
Mr. Afoko in an interview on TV3’s Hot Issues on Saturday rejected all allegations leveled against him by the national executives. He also noted even though he will vote the NPP, he wasn’t sure about their victory in the November polls
