Ford Controversy: CPP suspends General Secretary, Youth Organiser

Information gathered by has it that the leadership of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), has suspended General Secretary Nii Armah Akomfrah and Youth Organiser Ernesto Yeboah.

The reasons behind the suspension of the two are not clear yet but learns that it has something to do with the flagbearer’s recent comments on President John Mahama’s Ford Expedition gift saga, which the youth wing of the party petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) about.

Following Mr Greenstreet’s comments that the Ford Expedition gift was not a bribe or case of conflict of interest, the General Secretary said the flagbearer must consult the party on such matters before speaking.

According to the party’s Communciation Director Rauf Kadir, the suspension of the two has to do with “proven misbehaviour”, explaining that “their comments and behaviour have been contradicting” the stance of the party.
