Jacob Amoako has been appointed by the Peoples National Convention (PNC) as acting General Secretary.
The new appointment follows the suspension of Mohammed Atik, who was accused of attacking the leader of the party, Edward Mahama.
Atik launched a blistering attack on the party’s leader for accepting the position of Ambassador-at-large in the new government. This prompted the National Executive Committee of the People’s National Convention (PNC) to sanction him by suspending him indefinitely.
Atik laughed off the suspension, saying he was still at post. He is being backed by the Chairman of the party, Bernard Mornah, who described the sanction as ‘travesty of justice’.
