But a statement signed by Nana Yaw Osei, spokesperson of Mr Afoko asked the public to disregard the notice of his suspension by the party.

Below is the full statement:

ILLEGAL NEC MEETING CAN'T SUSPEND PAUL  AFOKO AS NATIONAL CHAIRMAN OF NPP

The attention of Mr. Paul A. Afoko, the national chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been drawn to a statement allegedly authored by Nana Akomea,  the party's Director of Communication to the effect that the national chairman has been suspended indefinitely from his position.

In his stead, Mr. Freddie Blay, the First Vice National Chairman would act.

We want to state in unequivocal terms that the improperly constituted National Disciplinary Committee cannot recommend any indefinite suspension of Mr. Paul Afoko to the National Executive Committee (NEC) whose chairman did not call the meeting that purportedly endorsed the so-called decision of the national disciplinary committee.

We insist that an improperly called meeting of the NEC cannot legally deliberate on any matter for it to have the proper effect of binding on Mr. Paul Afoko as the national chairman.

The general public is entreated to treat the statement from Nana Akomea with the contempt it deserves and disregard same.

Thank you.

Nana Yaw Osei
Spokesperson for National Chairman, NPP.
