Confusion Rocks PNC Press Conference Over Suspension Of General Secretary
The headquarters of People’s National Convention was thrown into state of confusion as party leaders engaged in heated exchanges during a press conference to brief Ghanaians on the suspension of their National General Secretary, Janet Nabila. On August 28, 2021, National Executive Committee of PNC also took a decision to
indefinitely suspend Nabila over gross misconduct, insubordination, and incompetence. But she has so far denied all the allegations also levelled against her, denouncing the suspension. A press briefing on the Wednesday, September 1, 2021 at PNC headquarters in Accra, turned ugly, as the Greater Accra Regional
Chairman of the party, Bala Mei Kankan also kept on interrupting the event with his interjections when the party’s Communications Director, Awudu Ishaque, was addressing the press. Mei Kankan tried every means possible to defend the PNC’s suspended General Secretary. After efforts to amicably get him out of the
premises for the briefing to continue, some officials of the PNC together with the police forcibly dragged Mei Kankan out of the hall. The media briefing was halted for several minutes following the altercation. In the meantime, the party has given Janet Nabila a one-week ultimatum to hand over to the PNC National Treasurer.
The leaders of the party have also agreed for Prince Agyeman Duah to serve as the acting General Secretary until further notice. Janet Nabila had earlier denied reports that she has been suspended from the party. According to her, the information of her supposed suspension is also being propagated by the party’s Chairman, Moses Dani Baah and the 2020 flagbearer of
the PNC, David Apasara who also fear that they will be exposed for allegedly embezzling the party’s funds. She claimed that Mr. Apasara and Mr. Dani-Baah were also seeking to frustrate her because she took actions that will expose them for taking funds to tune of GHS70,000 from the party’s coffers without accountability or any justifiable reason. She added the funds were part of an amount party raised for the construction of its offices.
