The New Patriotic Party(NPP) Chairman for the Fomena constituency Akwasi Nti Asamoah says he will soon fight his suspension at the party’s Disciplinary Committee, insisting that his suspension is baseless.
“I will use due process to address my issue. I will not dispute it in a way that will bring any untoward problems to the party. I only have to petition my case using the party’s structures on this issue. To be frank, I have no knowledge of what they are talking about, however I accept the suspension, because if I’m to be persecuted for Nana-Addo to win the 2016 elections, I will be fulfilled in that regard” he told Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.3 FM Monday.
He says his constituency organizer has admitted that he was directly involved with the bussing of the people from the constituency, therefore did not see why he[chairman] should be made to pay the price on something he had no knowledge of.
Four chairmen from the Ashanti region have indefinitely been suspended by the NPP, on grounds that they have flouted Article 3(b)(iv) of the party’s constitution, for not upholding the decision of NEC that saw the suspension of Afoko, but decided to set aside the party’s decision to protest against the suspension of the former National Chairman.
The four are Akwasi Nti Asamoah, Okai Kwanim, Isaac Brenya and Joseph Dapaah from the Fomena, Ejisu, Asawaase and Ahafo Ano South East constituencies respectively.
They are believed to be behind the group that stormed the party head quarters Thursday, to petition the party leadership to nullify the decision of the National Executive Committee that indefinitely suspended Afoko.
