National Youth Organizer of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Ernesto Yeboah says but for the media, he was not aware of his suspension.
The party has suspended its General Secretary Nii Armah Akomfrah together with the youth leader, after a Central Committee meeting of the party Thursday afternoon.
It is unclear what might have triggered the sanctions against the executives of the Nkrumahist party. The two chided their presidential candidate Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, for saying that President Mahama’s acceptance of the Ford Expedition gift by the Burkinabe contractor, was not a case of conflict of interest neither was there a breach of protocol.
According to the party, the two were suspended for ”acts of indiscipline”. The leader of the youth wing has petitioned CHRAJ on the matter- but that the party says is an individual action and do not reflect the position of CPP.
Speaking in an interview with Rainbow Radio’s Nyankonton Mu Nsem, Ernesto Yeboah said he is not aware of his suspension. He said, he will go on to fight against corruption no matter the price. The outspoken leader wondered why an Nkrumahist party which was formed on the principles of integrity, will suspend its leaders for fighting against corruption.
”I don’t care if i’m sacked from the CPP; or even killed for fighting against corruption. I will continue to fight to wipe out corruption from Ghana. I wonder how a party of integrity would suspend me for fighting against corruption. With or without Ernesto Yeboah, the fight against corruption.”
