An aide to the Vice President, Manaf Ibrahim, has been relieved from his position at the Presidency following his court row with the New Patriotic Party over his parliamentary bid.
Manaf has sued the party over what he says is unfair treatment being meted out to him by the party in the Asawase parliamentary contest.
A statement from the office of the Vice President said the appointment of Mr. Ibrahim has been terminated since September 30.
“I have been directed to inform you that your appointment as Director of Political Affairs at the Vice President’s Secretariat has been terminated effective 30th September 2019.
"Notwithstanding the termination, you are still under the obligation of confidentiality that you signed during your employment. Please arrange for the rectum of all official equipment, property, and documents in your possession."
"I will like to thank you for your service during your period of employment,” a statement from the presidency said.
