The New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Jomoro Constituency of Western Region has suspended its communicators by barring them from appearing on radio to defend the party and the Akufo-Addo-led government.
This harsh decision was unanimously taken by the Constituency Executive Committee of the party in the pursuit of what could pass for clandestine agenda.
MyNewsGh.com Western Regional Correspondent contacted the leadership of the party to ascertain the reason behind this suspension, but they declined to comment and indicated that they will issue a release to that effect at a later date.
According to our correspondent, the party has not been sending any communication team members to represent the Akufo-Addo-led government on any radio station in the constituency since August 2019.
Per independent investigation our correspondent has conducted, the Constituency Executive Committee took the decision following steps taken by the party to sack the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for the area, Ernest Kofie.
It would be recalled that on August 6, 2019, the Constituency Executive Committee issued a communique to all party members to dissociate themselves from activities of the MCE and the Assembly.
Following this communique, the party staged a mammoth demonstration on August 14, 2019 against the MCE for showing gross disrespect to the leadership of the party and called on President Akufo-Addo to sack him from office.
After the demonstration, some communication team members went on radio to attack the demonstrators and declared their support for the MCE, urging President Akufo-Addo not to sack him.
Our source has it that the behaviour exhibited by these communicators did not go down well with leadership of the party hence the indefinite suspension.
