Our fight against corruption will still continue' – Ernesto Yeboah vows despite suspension

Despite his suspension as the National Youth Organiser of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Ernesto Yeboah says the fight against corruption will still continue.
He explained to Joy FM's Super Morning SHow Friday that his suspension does not stop the process to get the President investigated after he recieved a gift from a Burkinabe contractor Oumarou Djibril Kanazoe in 2012.
The CPP National Executive Committee last Thursday announced that it has suspended Ernesto Yeboah and the General Secretary Nii Armah Akomfrah for what it says is an "act of indiscipline".
The CPP Communications Director Abdul Kadiri claimed that Ernesto Yeboah acted arbitrarily when the Youth League petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to investigate the president.
His position contradicted the position of the presidential candidate Ivor Greenstreet who believes it does not "feel wrong" for the president to accept a Ford Expedition gift even though it contradicted a code of ethics for the Executive.
The presidential candidate Ivor Greenstreet dropped hints of an impending suspension when at an IEA event for presidential aspirants, he suggested that there is a price for taking individual positions.
But speaking on his suspension, Ernesto Yeboah said his fight against corruption is not personal, it is an institutional fight of the CPP Youth League.
“I am happy that it is not the youth league that is suspended but it is Ernesto Yeboah that has been suspended. What it means is that our fight against corruption will still continue,” he disclosed.
Ernesto rejected the party's view that together with the General Secretary, they contradicted the flagbearer over the controversial Mahama Ford gift.
He explained the Youth League publicly condemned the act before the flagbearer or any other structure in the party made public pronouncement on the issue.
“It is not the youth league that contradicted the flagbearer, if we want to be fair to ourselves may be it is the flagbearer who contradicted the youth league,” he said.
The CPP leader said it was curious that a party should punish members who fight against corruption. - culled from
