Related Stories
A coalition made of youth groups of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Upper East Region have rallied its support for the suspension of the party's National Chairman, Paul Afoko, by the National Executive Committee of the party.

"It is proper to re-emphasize that we the coaliton of NPP youth groups in the Upper East Region by this press conference endorse and pledge the decision of the Disciplinary Committee and its subsequent adoption by the National Executive Committee to suspend Mr. Paul Afoko indefinitely...Any allusion to the effect that the party may lose votes as a result of this suspension should be orderly disregarded," he said.

Speaking at a news conference on Monday, while expressing gratitude to the Disciplinary Committee and the National Executive Committee for the decision, the coalition also advised the suspended National Chairman to rather use internal party structures to seek redress rather than resorting to media engagements to react to the action taken against him.

"We implore him to stop the media engagement through his so called spokesperson in dealing with matters related to the party."

Spokesperson to the coalition, Sanusi Issah, also challenged the "Bolga Bull Dogs", a group believed to be rooting for the suspended National Chairman, to show up if it really exists.

"We challenge them therefore to come out if only the really exist in this region," he stated.

The coalition therefore addressed that the decision was very timely and necessary at a time where Paul Afoko's brother Gregory Afoko has been accused in the death of Mahama Adams, the former Upper East Regional Chairman of the NPP who was attacked with acid leading to his death.

"..Mr Afoko as chairman could not and can not campaign in the region with his family member linked to the death of Chairman Adam, this suspension has rather brought relieve and trust to the teeming youth within and outside the party in the region," Sanusi Issah emphasized while addressing the media.
