National Council affirms decision to suspend Afoko

The National Council the second highest decision making body of the opposition New Patriotic Party has upheld the decision by the National Executive Council to suspend embattled chairman Paul Afoko.

A total of 70 votes, six abstentions and one dissenting vote nailed the suspension coffin of the embattled chair seeking to return to office after he was suspended two weeks ago.

The affirmation came Thursday in a tension filled meeting held at the party’s Head Quarters which saw key party gurus, including ex-president John Kufuor all attending.

Paul Afoko challenged the decision by NEC to suspend him for misconduct and at a point described the decision as illegal. In an intransigent fashion Afoko granted several interviews insisting he was still the chair of the party. He took the case to court but was thrown out.

The embattled chair returned to the party structures with a letter of appeal, hoping the party will rescind its decision to suspend him but that was not to be.
