The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), has ousted prominent figures including Nana Ohene Ntow, Hopeson Adorye, Boniface Abubakar Saddique, and Buaben Asamoa for their active support of Alan Kyerematen
The leadership of the party, in a press release dated Monday, November 20, 2023, attributed the dismissal of these party members to their public endorsement of a presidential aspirant other than the party’s elected flagbearer, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
The statement which was signed by its General Secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong, cites this endorsement as a breach of the party’s constitution, particularly Articles 3(5) (A)(4) and 3(9)(1). The leadership of the party clarified that the actions of the four dismissed members go against the principles of the party and, as a result, their membership has been forfeited.
“The leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has taken notice of recent activities of Hopeson Adorye, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, Nana Ohene Ntow, and Boniface Abubakar Saddique which includes publicly endorsing the candidature of a person other than the duly elected Presidential Candidate of the Party; Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia.Despite their flagrant breach of the Party’s Constitution particularly Articles 3(5) (A)(4) and 3(9)(1), the afore-named men still hold themselves out as members of the NPP.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Article 3(5) (A) (4) of the NPP Constitution enjoins all members of the Party to ‘abide by and publicly uphold the decisions of the Party’,’ the statement added.
