I will accept calls to go back to NPP if... - Afoko
Mr Afoko has been in court challenging a suspension handed down to him by the NPP’s Disciplinary Committee for alleged misconduct.
The suspended Chair had earlier described his suspension as unconstitutional and a breach of natural justice.
But the Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court on Monday, August 15, 2016, dismissed a suit filed by Paul Afoko in the case in which he is challenging his suspension as national chairman of the New Patriotic Party.
According to the judgment of the presiding judge, Justice Anthony Yeboah, the suspension of Mr. Afoko was just, lawful and fair.
He further added that the procedure used for the suspension was right and was not breached in any way by the NPP.
Afoko had subsequently said that even though he respected the decision handed down by the court, he disagreed with it.
He said he will launch an appeal against the decision at the appropriate time.
Many have said that Paul Afoko should not have gone to court over the matter, and have subsequently called on him to return to the party and settle all differences.
But Afoko's Spokesperson, Nana Yaw Osei argues that “going to court is never bad.”
He said: “Those who were creating the problem, they have behaved as if they have done nothing. When they were fermenting trouble, did they spare a minute to think about the possible effect on our chances on the 2016 elections? Now that the fight on quote is on, the impression now is Mr Afoko should go back...Mr Afoko loves the party. If it is genuine, he will consider it."
"But that impression where somebody sits somewhere and feels big of themselves as if they are the all in all within the NPP; they just must stop that because the party does not belong to only one person, it belongs to all of us – the NPP,” he told Radio Ghana.
