His suspension from the largest opposition party in Ghana was contained in a letter but it was however unclear reasons for his suspension.
According to the said letter, the party revealed that the leadership of the NPP found some of Dr Tamakloe’s past comments concerning the party unpalatable and a breach of some provisions of the party.
As things stand currently, Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe has becomes the fourth prominent member of the NPP to be suspended after the party’s national executives including Chairman Paul Afoko, Second Vice-Chair Sammy Crabbe and General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong were suspended for various acts of indiscipline.
Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe has described the authors of a letter addressed to him informing him of his suspension from the New Patriotic Party as “gaping sycophants”.
In a statement, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe, a founder-member of the Danquah-Busia-Dombo family referred to the development as “a purported attempt to suspend me from the party”.
However, Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe on his part said, he has treated the letter with contempt ‘the letter purportedly written by the Greater Accra Regional executives of the NPP on the 31st of December, 2015 suspending me from the party. The authors are just “gaping sycophants”.
He also said, the authors were in such a haste to attack him but they failed to respect the time-honoured principle of giving an accused the opportunity to face his accusers and defend himself.
“This so-called suspension is of no moment and I will continue to fight for NPP’s ideals. They quote the Party’s constitutions without the awareness that some of us brought that constitution into being with our sweat and blood” he said.
Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe condemned people within the NPP whom he referred to as “fascists” within the Party adding that “As a statesman, in recent times, I have heeded counsel not to speak on party matters. However, I have never retreated from a fight so I will respond pound for pound. Please ask my detractors what the party has done to members who, among other things:
a) violently disrupted party parliamentary primaries leasing to criminal prosecution;
b) advocated that only Akans are worthy of ruling Ghana;
c) falsely attack His Excellency J. A. Kufuor and other leading members of the Party without basis;
d) violently disrupted public functions organised by other party members including senior citizens Attoh-Quarshie;
e) violently prevented elected Party officials from entering the Party headquarters;
f) have been caught on tape planning to mount dubious court cases against financial institutions to make money for their own pockets”.
Dr Tamakloe claimed all the people involved in the above stated behaviors want to prove their allegiance to the flag bearer of the party by running others down.
“They are counting their chickens before they are hatched. Instead of focusing on the 2016 elections, they are pursuing an agenda of rumour mongering”.
“I refuse to answer to fascists. I will answer to people like J. A. Kufuor, B. K. Adama, Tolon Naa Alhaji Yakubu Talli, Roland Al hassan, Dzato Kaleo, Alhaji Adbulai Issahaque, Peter Ala Adjetey, D. J. DaRocha, Dr. Dsane Selby, J. H. Mensah, Samuel Odoi Sykes, K. G. Osei Bonsu and those who laid the foundation of our party, and not these ignoramuses. Even the Greater Accra Regional chairman – who knows him in Greater Accra?” he stated.
