Central regional executives of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) have, by a unanimous decision, passed a vote of no confidence in the party's National chairman Paul Afoko and General Secretary Kwabena Agyapong.

The executives took the decision in a meeting at Mankessim.

Meanwhile, constituency and polling stations executives in the Ashanti region have rejected  a move by the regional chairman, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, a.k.a Chairman Wontumi to impeach Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyapong.

Reports indicate that some regional chairmen met the flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo in Bolgatanga after the burial of the Upper East Regional chairman, Mahama Adams who was killed in a fatal acid attack.

The Regional Chairmen were, however, asked to gather signatures from all the ten regions in support of the impeachment.

The Greater Accra region led by Ishmael Ashietey met the constituency chairmen but no reason was given for the removal of the two executives which they rejected the position taken by Mr. Ashitey.

They (executives) asked for a letter to explain the purpose of the meeting but he (Ashietey) said he will inform them through a text message.

In the Northern Region, only four were in support of the move to oust the two national executives namely, Hajia Amaama, Alhaji Rashid, Bugri Naabu and the Northern regional communications director.

Bugri Naabu, Northern Regional Chairman handed a paper to all regional executives to sign without any reason but the move was rejected by the executives.

Upon hearing the failure to gather support in Accra and Tamale, an emergency was organised on Sunday night at the residence of Nana Akuffo-Addo, which had in attendance Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, Irene Naa TorshieUrsula Owusu, Dr. Akoto Afriyie, John Boadu who have been charged to ensure that the plan succeeds in other regions.
