PNC appoints acting General Secretary

The National Executive Committee of the People’s National Convention (PNC) has appointed Jacob Amoako as acting General Secretary to replace suspended General Secretary Atik Mohammed.

Mr Mohammed was suspended indefinitely by the second highest decision making body of the party after its meeting held on Saturday, 22 July 2017 for criticising the party’s national leader and 2016 presidential candidate Dr Edward Mahama for accepting an ambassadorial appointment from President Nana Akufo-Addo.

The PNC in a statement said Mr Mohammed does not have the mandate to henceforth represent the party in any capacity.

Meanwhile, the National Chairman of the party, Bernard Mornah, has described as unlawful the decision to suspend Mr Mohammed.
