A senior lecturer at the University of Ghana, Professor Ransford Gyampo, has asked the governing New Patriotic Party(NPP) to sanction President for openly campaigning for the Director of Communications at the Presidency.
The lecturer posited that the President’s defiance of party laws is worrying and must be called to order immediately by the leadership of the party.
“Respectfully, Mr President, I cannot mince words. I think you are being lawless, I am sorry to put it bluntly. You were part of your Party’s National Executive Committee Meeting that approved the Party’s Code of Conduct. You are giving unfair advantage to Eugene Arhin, knowing very well that Parliamentary Primaries for the area hasn’t been held.
“You must not read everything written for you. Your speech makers always have their own agenda too and I expect you to be able to read in between the lines, to know whose interest is being served by the kind of things that are sometimes written for you to read.
“I expect Justine Frempong Kodua, the General Secretary of the Party to muster the testicular fortitude as a man who believes in fairness to summon you before your Party’s Complaint Committee. He did this to Hopeson Adorye and Assifua. No one is above the law and the application of the law must not be selective.”
