The suspended NPP 2016 parliamentary candidate for the Nadowli/kaleo constituency, Mr. Elvis Banoemoleng Botah has stated with strong emotions that, he is going to contest the decisions taken against his suspension by the party’s disciplinary committee.
In a rejoinder issued Monday September 10,2018, he noted that, the Disciplinary Committee do not have the capacity to issue such a directive noting that, the right channel was not pass through by the committee hence his resolution to challenge the action taken by them in suspending him indefinitely from the party.
“It is my position that, the entire intention and subsequent action of what is described as my suspension, lacks focus and particularity to the extent that the Disciplinary committee which holds no appropriate jurisdictions in the first instance, also lack grounds to bring against me a cause of action of that nature. Worse of it is the gross constitutional and procedural flaws of the entire process that substantially affects the technicality of the constitutional option of a sanction of that gravity” the statement noted.
Meanwhile, Mr. Elvis has accused the party disciplinary committee and the constituency chairman of failing to do due diligence in respect of the subject adding that “the decision to suspend me, is one exhibited in had faith to meet their political whims and caprices” he said.
However, he stressed the need for him to abide by the party regulations hinting his intention to petition the party leadership over the action taken by the constituency disciplinary committee. “Being a party a true party loyalist who will abide by the regulations of the party at all times and knowing that I have done no wrong to merit any form of suspension, I shall with immediate effect petition the appropriate authority for the necessary action” he noted.
He issued the rejoinder Monday September 10, 2018 after he was served a letter announcing his suspension by the NPP Nadowli/Kaleo Constituency executives on Sunday September 9, 2018 over what the party described as gross constitutional breaches, gross misconduct, insubordination and disrespect of party elders on the part of the former aspirant.
