PNC suspends General Secretary Atik Mohammed

The People’s National Congress (PNC) has suspended its General Secretary, Atik Mohammed for derogatory comments made about the party’s flagbearer in the 2016 elections, Dr. Edward Mahama.

Several senior members of the party had expressed their opposition to the acceptance of a position of Ambassador-at large by Dr. Mahama without consulting the party.

The National Executive Committee of the party took the decision to suspend Atik after a meeting on Saturday.

Dr. Edward Mahama, who has been flagbearer of the PNC five times, was named Ambassador-at-Large by President Akufo-Addo last week.

However, some officials of the party, including National Chairman, Bernard Mornah expressed their reservations about the appointment suggesting that it would limit his objectivity on national issues.

Bernard Mornah also stated that Dr Mahama had violated his own principles having reportedly opposed the appointment of other party members by previous governments, a claim the former flagbearer has categorically denied
