Kwabena Agyapong says he was not informed about the emergency meeting held by some national officers of the NPP.
NPP General Secretary, Kwabena Agyapong, says he had no knowledge of a Steering Committee meeting held by a section of national officers earlier today.
“Tell them, I am eating fufu in Kumasi. I don’t know anything about this meeting,” he told Joy News Monday.
Kwabena Agyapong was questioning the need to organize a meeting so urgently that it could not wait for the return of the party chairman.
NPP First Vice Chairman Freddie Blay chaired a National Steering Committee meeting to discuss the vetting process for parliamentary aspirants.
The meeting which is supposed to be held at least once a week was last held two months ago.
Defending his decision to call the meeting, Freddie Blay maintained that he had “every authority in the absence of the national chairman” to organize the meeting.
“What we did is constitutional…. It is not a question of asking for somebody’s consent before taking a decision”, he explained.
