The Second National Vice Chair of the New Patriotic Party, Sammy Crabbe is likely to be suspended by the party if he refuses to accept the decision of the National Executive Committee of the party to suspend Chairman, Paul Afoko.

He believes the party's decision to suspend Afoko is illegal.

However, commenting on the issue, Communications director of the NPP, Nana Akomea said Mr Crabbe is setting himself up for disciplinary procedures of the party by his recent remarks.“I am surprised at his comments, he says he won’t recognise the decision of NEC and he is supposed to be second vice chair. He may disagree but once that is a decision by NEC, he has to follow.

"I would have expected him to follow the laid down procedures of the party in expressing his grievances because even Paul Afoko himself is following the structures of the party,” he told Accra-based Joy Fm.

Meanwhile, the National Council of the party is currently locked up in a meeting over a petition brought before it by Paul Afoko.
