It didn't go the way suspended chairman, Paul Afoko had wished as an Accra High Court threw out his case.

Mr. Afoko had contended that the processes leading to his suspension were not fair but the Human Rights Court presided over by Mr. Justice Anthony Yeboah ruled that plaintiff had no case and that the processes that led to the suspension were fair, lawful and just.

Mr. Afoko sued the NPP in December 2015, claiming that his suspension by the party’s National Executive Council breached party constitution.


Joined to the suit were the NPP and its acting Chairman, Mr. Freddie Blay. Paul Afoko also challenged the constitutionality of the party’s Disciplinary Committee that recommended his suspension over claims he undermined the party.
