Source: citifmonline.com - Nana Yaw Osei, Spokesperson for suspended National Chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Paul Afoko, has told Citi News his boss attended the forum on the voters register because he was invited by the Electoral Commission.
Afoko was spotted sitting with the NPP delegation which included the General Secretary of the party, Kwabena Agyepong, John Boadu, Mac Manu among others.

Addressing journalists on the sidelines of the forum, Mr. Afoko insisted that he attended the forum in his capacity as the party’s National Chairman.

Speaking on Eyewitness News, his spokesperson explained that Mr. Afoko attended the forum after receiving an invitation letter from the EC.

“The Electoral Commission doesn’t just get up and invite people. They write to political parties and invite them. The Electoral Commission wrote a letter inviting the National Chairman, the General Secretary and the technical team of the party on the review of the voters register and if the National Chairman has been invited we have only one National Chairman; and that is Mr. Paul Afoko. One General Secretary which is Kwabena Agyepong and the technical team which is made up of Mac Manu, Martin Adjei Mensah and Hon. O. B Amoah”.

“The Electoral Commission wrote a letter inviting each person and nobody can usurp the functions of the National Chairman, Mr. Paul Afoko and so he went.”

Asked when Mr. Afoko will use the party structures to overturn his suspension Osei said, “at the appropriate time when it becomes necessary for us to take any step, we will. I will not give any timeline.”

Mr. Afoko was indefinitely suspended a week ago after the party’s National Council upheld a decision by the Disciplinary committee.

His suspension has been met with mixed reactions. While some have defended and commended the move, others believe the decision was inappropriate and does not augur well for the party.
