The National Executive Council (NEC) of the People’s National Convention (PNC) has reinstated suspended General Secretary Madam Janet Nabla and removed Mr. David Apasera from his position as leader of the party.

The decisions were taken on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, at the end of an extraordinary PNC NEC meeting held in Kumasi with nine regional chairmen and secretaries as well as some national officers as required by law.

At the meeting, NEC judiciously deliberated on recent occurrences in the party and resolved that the NEC meeting of 28th August 2021 was not properly constituted pursuant to Article 45(3) and as such, that meeting is null and void and its outcome must be treated with contempt.

It was at that meeting that General Secretary Janet Nabla was suspended indefinitely over alleged misconduct and insubordination.

In addition to that decision from NEC after today’s meeting, it has removed Mr. David Apasera and Mr. Moses Danibaah from their respective offices pursuant to Article 49(a)(4) of PNC constitution for misconducting themselves as prescribed in the petition indefinitely.

While the Greater Accra Regional Chairman is to replace Mr. David Apasera as the National Chairman and Leader of the PNC in the foregoing, Madam Janet Nabla has been reinstalled as General Secretary.

She is fully cleared to continue to conduct her function as stated in the constitution.

Below is the fallout from the PNC NEC Extraordinary meeting today:

COMMUNIQUE AT THE END OF THE EXTRAORDINARY PNC NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE (NEC) MEETING HELD IN KUMASI, 7TH DAY OF SEPTEMBER, 2021

Pursuant to Article 45(1a) of the PNC constitution, NEC met in Kumasi extraordinarily, to address recent disturbing occurrences in the party and to make a determination on a petition brought before NEC by the General Secretary; Janet Asana Nabla, the Ashanti Regional Youth Organizer; Muniru Mohammed and the Communication Director of North East; Mamuna Yidana.

Present at the meeting were nine (9) regional chairmen and secretaries, some national officers as required by law. National Vice Chairman Henry Asante and Sam Adeifio (the Central Regional Secretary) were present virtually via Zoom.

NEC judiciously deliberated on recent occurrences in the party and resolved as follows:

That the NEC meeting of 28th August 2021 was not properly constituted pursuant to Article 45(3) and as such that meeting is null and void and its outcome must be treated with contempt.

That NEC subjected the petition submitted by the three to very diligent scrutiny and upholds all the accusations as the truth. Consequently, Mr. David Apasera and Mr. Moses Danibaah are guilty of the accusations.

That, they are removed from their respective offices pursuant to Article 49(a)(4) of PNC constitution for misconducting themselves as prescribed in the petition indefinitely.

That in their absence, the Greater Accra Regional Chairman shall act as the National Chairman and Leader of the PNC.

That the General Secretary is cleared to continue to conduct her function as stated in the constitution.
