Respect NEC's decision on Afoko - Nana Addo to NPP

The flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo Addo, has called on party members to respect the decision of the National Executive Committee (NEC) on the indefinite suspension of the National Chairman of the Party, Paul Afoko.

In a statement released on Monday, Nana Addo said, “the appropriate organs of the Party have acted. I am, therefore, calling on all loyal members of the Party to respect the decision of NEC and the Constitution of the Party, which provides channels for redressing grievances.”

“The NPP requires a united and committed front for the task ahead. We need to stay focused and organise ourselves to prosecute a successful campaign in 2016 to relieve the Ghanaian people from their sufferings and hardships. Ghanaians are looking up to us,” he added.

Afoko was suspended last Friday after the NEC upheld a decision by the party’s Disciplinary Committee.

The Committee took the decision after Afoko failed to appear before the committee to answer allegations of misconduct levelled against him.

Last Friday in Accra, the National Executive Committee of the New Patriotic Party unanimously adopted the recommendation of the National Disciplinary Committee for the indefinite suspension of the National Chairman of the Party.

According to a release by the Party, “by the decision of the NEC, Mr. Paul Afoko is suspended indefinitely from the position of National Chairman of the NPP.”

I profoundly regret that matters have come to this. Such a development has been rather rare in the history of our party. I had hoped that internal discussions and a spirit of cooperation would have enabled the Party to avoid such an eventuality.

However, the appropriate organs of the Party have acted. I am, therefore, calling on all loyal members of the Party to respect the decision of NEC and the Constitution of the Party, which provides channels for redressing grievances. We need to conduct ourselves in a disciplined manner that will protect and promote the integrity and unity of the Party.

The NPP requires a united and committed front for the task ahead. We need to stay focused and organise ourselves to prosecute a successful campaign in 2016 to relieve the Ghanaian people from their sufferings and hardships. Ghanaians are looking up to us.

God bless the NPP

God bless Mother Ghana.

……Signed……

Nana Akufo-Addo

NPP Presidential Candidate
