Ford gift saga: CPP DC clears Ernesto Yeboah, Akomfrah


The two executives of the Conventions People’s Party who were suspended for their reaction in the ford gift controversy involving the president have been cleared by the disciplinary committee of the party.

National Youth Organiser Ernesto Yeboah and General Secretary Nii Armah Akomfrah were suspended by the party for openly criticizing the president for accepting the gift from a Burkinabe contractor who won a contract in Ghana.

“That due to the absence of charges before the committee, it is the finding of the committee that the Respondents were not given any chance to know beforehand the charges levelled against them. This is clearly in breach of Article 114(e) of the party constitution which reads as follows; “A person referred to the DC shall be given adequate time to prepare his/her answer to the charges…”.
