An Accra Human Rights High Court will today give its judgement in a case in which the suspended National Chairman of New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Paul Afoko is challenging the decision at the court.

The court, presided over by Justice Anthony Yeboah, made this known on July 27, after both parties obliged with a directive to file their addresses.

Mr. Afoko sued the party and the acting chairman, Freddie Blay, praying the court to set aside his illegal suspension and also stop Mr. Blay from holding himself as the acting chairman of the Party.

Mr. Paul Afoko was suspended indefinitely by the party in October after NPP’s Disciplinary Committee recommended his suspension, following a petition filed by two members of the party.

The recommendation was unanimously endorsed by the NPP National Executive Committee on October 23, and Mr. Blay was made to act in his stead, according to a statement issued by the party and signed by its Communications Director, Nana Akomea.
