Private legal practitioner and Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen has been maintained as the Deputy General Secretary, despite the recent issues he had with the party.
The disciplinary committee of the NPP recently probed Mr Boahen, following comments he made on a leaked tape.
Mr Boahen was heard in a leaked audio that went viral claiming the party received five million cedis from the Presidency to organise the 2017 National Annual Delegates Conference in Cape Coast.
He however, apologised to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the NPP in general for the development.
A statement he issued said: “Respectfully, I am by this letter expressing my profound apology to the President, the Vice President, the Chief of Staff, the Steering Committee, the National Executives, Council of Elders, the National Executive Committee, the National Council of the New Patriotic Party and every member of the NPP for my indiscretion.”
He described the leaked tape as “heavily doctored and fraudulently voice-mimicked, which the contents thereof are untrue and incorrect and ought not to be given any credence and attention.”
The NPP on Wednesday September 19, at a joint National Council and National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting decided to maintain him as the Deputy General Secretary of the party.
