11 top members resign from PNC

Source The Ghana Report

Eleven out of sixteen members of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the People’s National Convention (PNC) have officially resigned to form a new party called, the People’s National Party (PNP).

This abrupt decision stems from their disagreement with a High Court ruling on April 8, which affirmed the suspension of the General Secretary of the PNC Janet Nabla due to allegations of gross misconduct, insubordination, and incompetence, while reinstating David Apasera as the party’s leader.

In a statement dated, April 8, 2024, the PNC announced that the court’s ruling brings to an end the three-year leadership crisis that had negatively impacted the party.

However, the Interim General Secretary of the PNP, Sulemana Seidu during a media briefing in Accra on April 17, 2024 noted that the party could not function under a leader lacking integrity and credibility.

“It is with great sadness that we announce our decision to leave the People’s National Convention (PNC) and form our own party, the People’s National Party (PNP). The decision to depart from the PNC comes as a result of the fact that we disagree with the ruling of the high court of 8th April 2024 for reinstating individuals whom we believe were rightfully dismissed from leadership positions due to financial malfeasance and misconduct.

“We the members of the National Executive Committee, representing 11 out of 16 regions, disagree with the ruling. We cannot in good conscience allow individuals lacking integrity and credibility to govern our party, especially when the legacy of our founder, Dr. Hilla Limann, is one of sacrifice without blemish.

“As we approach the pivotal elections of 2024, we recognize that credibility is paramount. Our party, the People’s National Party, will uphold the values of honesty, integrity, and transparency. We will not compromise on these principles, nor shall we allow the tarnishing of our founder’s legacy by individuals with stained hands,” he stated.

Mr Seidu further pledged that the executives of the new party will uphold the integrity and honesty set forth by Dr. Hilla Limann and work tirelessly to serve the best interests of our nation.

He also called on Ghanaians to support their vision as they embark on a new journey.

At the meeting, the interim executives of the new PNP were unveiled, with Janet Nabla being appointed as the party’s National Chairperson.

The others are: Vice Chairman, Francis Oppong; General Secretary, Sulemana Seidu; Deputy Secretary, Abdul Kadri Issah; National Organiser, Francis Daasu; Deputy Organiser, Faustina Anane, Treasurer, Jessica Aputare; Deputy Treasurer, Zakaria Mohammed; National Women’s Organiser, Patience Lamisi Adams; Deputy Women’s Organiser, Sandra Adepa; National Youth Organiser, Muniru S. Mohammed; Deputy Youth Organiser, Bright Foto and the Communication Secretary, Samuel Ayesu.

Before the judgement from the High Court on Janet Nabla, one of the long serving executives of the party, Hidaya Sungjun Ibrahim, who rose to the position of the National Women’s Organizer resigned unexpectedly.
