The national executives meeting of the main opposition New Patriotic Party that affirmed the suspension of the party’s national chairman Paul Afoko Tuesday is illegal because it did not have a quorum, spokesperson for the embattled chairman has said.
According to Nana Yaw Osei, some of the individuals who sat through the meeting were not constitutionally mandated to be there.
A meeting of the national executives Committee (NEC) and Council of Elders of the elephant family attended by its flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo affirmed the decision to suspend Mr. Afoko . The NEC claimed Mr. Afoko’s actions were inimical to the political fortunes of the party.
Speaking to Nii Arday Clegg on the Morning Starr Wednesday, Yaw Osei said his boss will challenge the decision to its logical conclusion.
“We insist that some of the members who sat in the meeting yesterday were not supposed to be there.
“Gifty Eugenia Kusi, MP for Tarkwa-Nsuaem sat on the meeting but she has never been a member of the national council. She never went through the processes that can make a person a member of the national disciplinary committee, her name was never sent to national council and the general secretary never wrote to her and she was never sworn-in for the post.
“We know Freddie Blay purported to swear her in at the British Council hall even at the time the national chairman was around; and even this suspension thing had not started,” he explained.
