The People’s National Convention (PNC), has indefinitely suspended its General Secretary, Janet Asana Nabla, for “gross misconduct, incompetence and insubordination”.
The decision to suspend her was taken on Saturday, 28 August 2021, at a National Executive Committee meeting held at the GNAT Hall in Accra.
A statement signed by the party’s Chairman, Mr Moses Dani Baah, said: “The National Executive Committee, in considering and adopting a report submitted by the Disciplinary Committee of the party, unanimously took the decision to suspend the General Secretary to rid the party of indiscipline, to save itself from her persistent vile accusations and disrespect for the leadership of the party, which has undoubtedly cast the PNC in bad light”.
The statement said a petition was put before the Disciplinary Committee of the party calling for the General Secretary to answer for her conduct and stewardship but “unfortunately, she snubbed the Committee by refusing to appear before the Disciplinary Committee despite several attempts by the Committee to get her to turn up”.
“Following this, the Committee presented its report to NEC for consideration, which recommended an indefinite suspension of Madam Janet Nabla and it was unanimously endorsed by NEC in accordance with Article 57 (7) of the party constitution”.
The party said “though a painful decision, the NEC of the PNC deem it appropriate to adopt this decision to protect the image of the party in the midst of all the negative press surrounding the party emanating from the conduct of the former General Secretary Madam Janet Nabla”.
“By this statement, the PNC implores the media, its supporters and sympathisers, civil society organisations, state agencies, diplomatic institutions and the general Ghanaian public to desist from holding or according her any courtesies as General Secretary of the PNC or do so at their own risk”.
