The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said it will ensure a former Constituency Chair of the Party, David Hoezame, receives a fair hearing if he decides to seek redress on his challenges with constitution of the party’s National Council.
A Fast Track High Court on Tuesday ordered Mr. Hoezame to use the grievance channels within the party to resolve his issues after he had dragged the party to court for breaching its constitution over the composition of its National Council .
In his suit, he said the current national executives had breached the NPP constitution by purporting to call for and take part in the deliberations of the Council without reconstituting it after they were elected into office in April 2014.

According to the lawyer for the NPP, Godfred Dame, the case was frivolous and lacked merit.
The court said, he could return to court to seek redress if the party’s channels fails to address his issues.
Speaking to Citi News, first vice chairman of the party, Freddie Blay said the party owes every member a fair hearing when they have genuine grievances.
“We shouldn’t close the door completely against genuine greivance but the question is how will do you know some grievance will be genuine or based on good grounds? We need to shift the chaff from the good grain,” he said.
