‘Afoko’s Suspension Needless- Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko
The Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko says the New Patriotic Party(NPP) has destroyed the strategy of containment within the party by suspending the chairman, Paul Afoko.
For him, Afoko’s suspension was “needless’ even at a time that the party has gone through the worst, and has received bad press on numerous issues.
In an interview with an us, Agyarko maintained that the action of the party on matters unfolding is a worrying development, insisting that this would rather open old wounds within the Dankwa-Busia-Dombo tradition.
He therefore urged the party to desist from creating the environment for some more troubles within the party, and focus on the big challenge of winning power next year.
“Afoko’s suspension is in a state of flux now. However, whether or not Afoko is the chairman is immaterial. What we need is quiet now, he advised.
The New Patriotic Party(NPP) Chairman, Paul Afoko was last Friday suspended indefinitely by the party.
The party has directed 1st Vice Chairman, Freddie Blay to take over as Acting Chairman of the NPP.
Suspension of the beleaguered Chairman was admitted after a unanimous decision taken by the National Executive Committee meeting at the party’s headquarters.
Afoko’s suspension from the party follows a petition by Council of Elders to the Disciplinary committee of the party asking him (Afoko) to step aside for secretly working against the interest of the party.
