Beleaguered National Chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Paul Awentami Afoko insists he is still the National Chairman of the party and will only relinquish his position if due process is followed.
According to him, it is only if 65% of the 5,000 party delegates who attended the Tamale Conference in 2014 reject him or his tenure comes to an end by 2018 will he accept he is no longer the National Chairman of the party.
Taking his turn on Starr Chat with host Bola Ray on Wednesday, Mr. Afoko stated that the party has meted out illegality and unconstitutionality to him reason he is in court to challenge the decision.
“I am in court to fight for that right”, he said.
He explains that his resolve not to attend meetings of the party because is to demonstrate to the generality of the party he is not endorsing the illegality and unconstitutionality that had bedeviled the party in recent times.
Mr. Afoko said he is concerned about the future of the party and is battle ready for the 2016 elections but was worried about the future of the party which believes in democracy and tenants of democracy and justice.
