The development was announced in a communiqué following A National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Accra.
The communiqué said NEC took notice of a purported Standing Committee meeting which was unduly conveyed and presided over by Messrs Apasera and Dani Baah on May 7, 2022.
The said meeting was attended by some PNC members despite an official caution from the party leadership.
“After a comprehensive discussion of the court’s ruling on the matter brought against the party by Messrs David Apasera and Moses Dani Baah, NEC concluded that the duo have violated Article 14 (a) of the PNC Constitution which states: ‘Any member of the party who is aggrieved by the party’s action and inaction shall within twenty-one (21) days, first seek redress from the internal dispute resolution mechanism of the party and shall have a further right of appeal to congress,” the statement read.
It added: “Following their penchant for breaching the constitution of the PNC — a behaviour that has obviously disrupted the pursuit of our collective goals and derailed the progress of the party, the membership of Messrs David Apasera and Moses Dani Baah has been terminated”.
