Paul Afoko's case adjourned

The embattled chairman prays the court to overturn his suspension by the party which he [Afoko] described as unconstitutional.

 

The court presided over by Mr Justice Anthony Yeboah adjourned the case to February 16, 2016, after hearing the plea by the NPP asking for adjournment.

Claim by Afoko

In a suit filed in an Accra High Court today, December 7, 2015, Mr. Afoko in his statement of claim insisted that he is the duly elected Chairman of the NPP.

The New Patriotic Party and Freddie Blay - first and second defendants respectively.

Background

Mr Afoko, who was elected the NPP National Chairman in April 2014, was suspended indefinitely at an emergency NEC meeting at the party’s headquarters at Asylum Down in Accra on Friday, October 23, 2015.

The NPP’s Disciplinary Committee had on October 21, 2015 submitted a report to the NEC of the party recommending the indefinite suspension of Mr Afoko as national chairman, citing his unilateral leadership style as a bane of the party’s progress.

At its meeting on Friday, October 23, 2015, the NEC endorsed the recommendation of the DC and asked the First Vice- Chair, Mr Freddie Blay, to act as national chairman in accordance with the party’s constitution.
