NPP chair should call emergency meeting – Ayikoi Otoo

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) says it will respond appropriately to a suit filed by one of its members, David Hoezame.

The chairman of the party’s Constitutional and Legal Affairs, Lawyer Ayikoi Otoo told Citi News that he believes the National Chairman should call an emergency National Steering Committee meeting to discuss the issue.

He stated that he would brief the committee on the situation after which the National Executive Committee of the party would also address the issue.

Mr. Otoo believes that the situation, if not handled properly, could disrupt the party’s programme for the election of their presidential candidate.

Mr. Hoezame on the June 17, 2014, filed a writ challenging the status of the party’s National Council as presently constituted and praying an Accra High Court to compel the NPP to follow what he calls procedures outlined in the party’s constitution and re-compose its National Council.

Mr. Hoezame, who describes himself as a fully paid up card bearing member of the NPP from ‘1992 till date, claims the Paul Afoko-led executive has breached the NPP constitution by purporting to call for and take part in the deliberations of the National Council without reconstituting it.
