The national Steering Committee of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has instructed the Deputy General Secretary, Nana Obiri Boahen, to refrain from speaking to the media in any official capacity after its meeting on Wednesday, 7th March, 2018.
This followed its assessment of Obiri Boahen’s tape recording and related matters.
A release signed by John Boadu, the Acting General Secretary of the party, stated, “The steering committee, after listening to him, took cognizance of his public apology for the false allegation he had made against the Flagstaff House and the party leadership, and referred his conduct to the party’s disciplinary committee in accordance with Article 4 of the party constitution.
“The steering committee wishes to use the opportunity to remind members of the party of their duties under Article 3(D), which enjoins them to protect and promote the good name of the party and also remain loyal and truthful to the party’s cause at all times.”
Nana Obiri Boahen had alleged that the Flagstaff House spent ¢50 billion on the party’s Cape Coast delegates’ conference last year and that he was given only a pittance out of the amount.
