The Acting Regional chairman for the New Patriotic Party in the Brong Ahafo, Thomas Adu Appiah popularly known as Chairman Thoma has denied suspension of some members of the party in the Sunyani East Constituency. The rumor he described as false as no such list has been given him after he took over from Lawyer Kwaku Asomah Cheremeh as the regional chairman for the party.
Claims from some party big wigs in the Sunyani East Constituency went viral of the suspension of some party faithful whom they believed supported an independent candidate prior to the 2016 general elections.
Party faithfuls of over thirty were reported to have been suspended by the constituency executives for what they described as betrayal on their part for not supporting Mr. Kwasi Ameyaw Cheremeh’s candidature.
But speaking to the acting Chairman, Mr. Adu Adjei, he revealed to host of Ark in the Morning Kwabena Obeng Akrofi that, he has only been briefed on a pending petition to the constituency by the independent candidate in the 2016 elections H.E Ambassador George Kumi for reinstatement as a party member after his suspension per the party’s constitution.
He further added that, the mandate now lies on the Sunyani East Constituency Executives to review his petition to reinstate or otherwise and advise the regional executives accordingly.
