New Patriotic Party stalwarts who petitioned the party’s Disciplinary Committee (DC) for the suspension of party chairman, Paul Awentami Afoko has validated The aL-hAJJ’s series of publications on the biggest opposition party and its flag bearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Unknown to many, one of the grounds on which the DC recommended Paul Afoko’s suspension was that one of the petitioners, Alhaji Mohammed Amadu Aminu, questioned why under the embattled National Chairman’s leadership, The aL-hAJJ newspaper continuously published classified information about happenings in the NPP.
Aspects of the DC’s ruling on Afoko said “He (Alhaji Mohammed Aminu) also observed that under Mr. Paul Afoko’s leadership, the Al-Hajj, an NDC Newspaper and other NDC press has been constantly publishing information on internal NPP matters, something that never happened in the past.”
Alhaji Mohammed Aminu’s authentication of stories published by this paper, particularly on Nana Akufo-Addo’s antics, is against the backdrop of spirited attempts by the NPP’s 2016 flag bearer and his lackeys to discredit the The aL-hAJJ.
In one of his numerous responds to a publication in this paper on some of his schemes, Nana Akufo-Addo slammed The aL-hAJJ, accusing it of pursuing an agenda “to manufacture lies and destroy people.”
“The work of the media is not to manufacture lies to destroy people, even if those people are seen as political opponents of the publishers. There is more to political competition than that,” a statement released by Nana Akufo-Addo’s office said.
However, an incensed Alhaji Mohammed Aminu involuntarily confirmed that The aL-hAJJ’s publications on happenings in the NPP are indeed credible for which reason he petitioned the DC to suspend Paul Afoko.
The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the NPP last week unanimously voted to suspend its National Chairman Paul Afoko indefinitely.
The NEC upheld the overwhelming decision by the Disciplinary Committee which decided that Mr Afoko be suspended.
However, the embattled Chairman has advised the public to disregard news about his suspension, insisting that he is still in charge as NPP National Chairman.
He is said to have petitioned the party’s National Council to reverse NEC’s decision on his suspension, failure of which his lawyers have given the clearest indication to challenge the process in court.
