The Peoples National Convention (PNC) is to sanction the party’s 2016 flagbearer, Dr. Edward Nasigri Mahama for accepting an appointment from President Akufo-Addo without the approval of the party.
National Chairman of the party, Bernard Morna in an interview with 3Fm said the appointment of their former flagbearer comes to them as a surprise adding that the entire party leadership had no knowledge about it.
Mr. Morna further indicated that Dr. Mahama, who has been appointed as an Ambassador-At-Large did not hint any member of the party when he was consulted by the ruling government for a possible appointment.
He said the leadership of the party would be meeting later to determine the punishment for Dr. Mahama.
His position as an Ambassador-At-Large means he would be an ambassador without a specific country but would be visiting countries to do government business at the behest of the president.
Whereas many political observers have applauded the move by government as an all-inclusive act of governance, the PNC thinks otherwise.
