Janet Nabla has said she remains the General Secretary of the People’s National Convention (PNC) despite a statement from the party’s National Chairman, Moses Dani Baah, that she has been suspended.
Janet told Asaase News that the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting that allegedly approved her suspension over the weekend did not form a quorum to validate her suspension.
“They don’t have any onus in PNC, they don’t have any power and nobody should respond to them. I am the general secretary of the PNC. And then I will continue to be the general secretary of the PNC, and I will make sure the chairman and the 2020 flagbearer [David Apasera] do what the constitution of PNC says they should do.”
“Apasera and Dani Baah, I am not answerable to them. The constitution makes me answerable to the National Executive Committee but NEC did not say it …that was not the party’s meeting, they just did it family and friends because they didn’t constitute a quorum to be able to decide that I am sacked, so am not sacked,” she stated.
In a press statement, the PNC National Chairman explained that the decision was taken after acting on a petition filed by a member of the party.
According to the statement, the General Secretary failed to honour an invitation to appear before a disciplinary committee of the party for the petition hearing.
The statement signed by the party’s National Chairman urged media houses not to deal with Madam Nabla as an executive member of the party.
“Though a painful decision, the NEC of the PNC deems 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,” the statement read in part.
