A communique issued by the party after its NEC meeting in Kumasi on Tuesday (7 September) asked its Greater Accra Regional Chairman, Bala Saliu Maikanka, to temporarily act as chairman and leader of the party.

The party has, however, reinstated its embattled General secretary Janet Nabla who was allegedly dismissed last week.

Below is the communique:

COMMUNIQUE AT THE END OF THE EXTRAORDINARY PNC NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE (NEC) MEETING HELD IN KUMASI, 7TH DAY OF SEPTEMBER, 2021

  1. Under Article 45(1a) of the PNC constitution, NEC met in Kumasi extraordinarily, to address recent disturbing occurrences in the party and to decide on a petition brought before NEC by the General Secretary; Janet Asana Nabla, the Ashanti Regional Youth Organizer; Muniru Mohammed and the Communication Director of North East; Mamuna Yidana.

  2. Present at the meeting were nine (9) regional chairmen and secretaries, some national officers as required by law. National Vice Chairman Henry Asante and Sam Adeifio (the Central Regional Secretary) were present virtually via Zoom.

  3. NEC judiciously deliberated on recent occurrences in the party and resolved as follows:

  4. That the NEC meeting of 28th August 2021 was not properly constituted under Article 45(3) and as such that meeting is null and void and its outcome must be treated with contempt.

  5. That NEC subjected the petition submitted by the three to very diligent scrutiny and upholds all the accusations as the truth. Consequently, Mr David Apasera and Mr Moses Danibaah are guilty of the accusations.

  6. That, they are removed from their respective offices under Article 49(a)(4) of the PNC constitution for misconducting themselves as prescribed in the petition indefinitely.
