According to the court, presided over by Justice Sir Dennis Adjei,  the suit by Mr. Crabbe was unmeritorious and therefore could not be held on any ground.

The judge opined that the the New Patriotic Party's national disciplinary committee has the jurisdiction to hear and punish anyone who breaches the party's rules.

Sammy Crabbe proceeded to court months after his suspension by the National Executive Council of the party claiming some violation in the rules of the party's constitution.

In the suit the suspended second vice chair is challenging the locus of one of the members of the disciplinary committee which took the decision to suspend him. Another suspended executive of the NPP, Paul Afoko testified as a witness for the plaintiff.

In his testimony Mr. Afoko claimed the inclusion of Madam Gifty Kusi as a member of the disciplinary committee of the NPP was illegal as she was not properly appointed.

The NPP have also suspended it's chairman Paul Afoko and general secretary, Kwabena Agyei Agyapong on grounds of misconduct last year
