Spokesperson for Paul Awentime Afoko, Nana Yaw Osei, says he is least disturbed about his suspension from the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) because he has not been benefiting from the party.

He said  on Kasapa FM Monday that once he is not benefitting from the party, his suspension does not worry him and because of that  will not take any action that decision.

“The NPP has not done anything for me. I challenge anybody to come out and tell what the party has done for me. I rather have spent my resources on the party. What do I get from the NPP than to work for the party to come to power? So, if they want to suspend me they should go ahead,” he lamented.

Nana Yaw Osei has been suspended indefinitely by the party in the Ashanti Region for allegedly sponsoring some people to demonstrate against the party’s decision to suspend Mr. Afoko.

Samuel Pyne, Ashanti Regional Secretary of the NPP,  told Kasapa FM that scores of people who were summoned before the party’s disciplinary committee in the Ashanti Region over the demonstration that took place in Accra alleged that Nana Yaw Osei sponsored the event.

Based on that confessions, he said the party had was left with no option than to evoke Article 3 (f) (1) of the party’s constitution to suspend Osei indefinitely, pending further decision by the National Disciplinary Committee.

Such a decision, he said, had been communicated to Osei.

But Osei responsding to such claims said his alleged suspension is unconstitutional and therefore, would not waste time to glorify that.

That aside, it was only through radio that he heard about his alleged suspension and therefore wondered why such decision would be taken about him without first contacting him for his response.

“I am hearing this for the first time on radio and I won’t glorify that. The Regional Party cannot suspend me and then after communicate same to the national level to investigate. They can do their worse and I will not respond to them. I won’t even waste my time on them. If they want, they should come out and tell the whole world that I have been sacked from the party and when that happens it is my right to challenge it or not,” he noted.

I was never contacted by the party’s leadership in the region about the decision to suspend me as demanded by Article 3 (f) (2) of the party’s constitution.

Article 3 (f) (2) of the NPP Constitution states “Any decision to suspend a Member shall not be taken unless the nature of the complaint has been communicated to the Member in writing and disciplinary proceedings have been initiated against such Member.”

When asked by host if he will honour any invitation by the party’s disciplinary committee to respond to his alleged conduct of organizing some people to demonstrate against the party, he answered “I will first of all look at what the party’s constitution says before deciding whether to go or not.”
