The Director of Communications of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akomea says the party’s suspended National Chairman, Paul Afoko has two weeks to appeal against the decision of the National Executive Committee (NEC).

Briefing the media after Afoko’s suspension, Nana Akomea stressed that though the NEC is convinced they did the right thing, Mr. Afoko can ask the National Council to review the decision.

“By the NPP’s constitution, Mr. Afoko has I think two weeks to appeal to a higher body. A body higher than the National Executive Committee and that body is the National Council. He has two weeks to appeal if he finds anything wrong with the procedure or the recommendation of the disciplinary committee, he can just put into writing and appeal to the National Council within two weeks and the National Council will be a second platform to look at the matter again,” Akomea suggested.

Afoko will use internal processes

Meanwhile Spokesperson for Paul Afoko, Nana Yaw Osei has indicated that the embattled former will seek redress at the court, if the internal party structures fail him.

Speaking in an interview with Citi News, Mr. Afoko’s spokesperson insisted the purported NEC meeting was a sham.

“Whatever happened the last time was not a NEC decision. A meeting that was called at best could be described as Freddie Blay and his friends, having attended a certain meeting and they are describing that as the NEC of the party…The party has internal processes, so we will seek the appropriate remedy within the party, if we are not successful we will have to go to court ..” he said.

The NEC of the NPP last Friday unanimously endorsed a recommendation by the party’s Disciplinary Committee suspending Paul Afoko for allegedly misconducting himself.

Some members of the party have since described the suspension as unfair while some believe the NEC’s decision was a step in the right direction.

On Monday, the Chairman of the party, C.K Tedam defended Afoko’s suspension, explaining that he acted against the interest of the party.

Although some members of the party have already sued the rank and file of the party for the suspension, Afoko is yet to file his law suit challenging the NEC’s decision.
