NPP seeks court order to gag Afoko

Paul-AfokoThe New Patriotic Party (NPP) is seeking an order from the court to stop its suspended National Chairman Paul Afoko from speaking to the media.

According to lawyers for the party, Mr. Afoko is using the media to prosecute his case against the party, which is already in court.

Starr News Wilberforce Asare who was in court today reports that the lead lawyer for the NPP, Godfred Dame, sought to convince the judge hearing the case between the Party and Afoko to give an order to stop the embattled chairman from running media commentaries on the matter.

The lawyer , according to Asare, also threatened to cite Afoko for contempt if he continues to prosecute his case in the media.

However, the presiding judge, Anthony Yeboah refused to comment on the matter after hearing from Afoko’s lawyer, Safo Boabeng.

The case has been adjourned to April 12.

Afoko was suspended by the disciplinary committee of the elephant family over acts the party considered inimical to their political fortunes.
