The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) National Executive Council (NEC) has re-instated Kwabena Agyei Agyepong membership after a six-year suspension.
This follows passionate appeals from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and other party stakeholders who argued that he is an indispensable asset to the NPP, and his suspension had affected the general welfare of the party.
Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, who is a former General Secretary of the NPP, was suspended with two others for misconduct in 2015. The two others were; the former National Chairman, Paul Afoko and the former National Vice Chairman, Sammy Crabbe.
The National Executive Council of the party found him, and the two others, guilty of violating Article 3(d) of the party’s Constitution, which enjoins members to uphold the party’s decisions, publicly through various acts.
He was also accused of engaging in “unilateral actions and activities without consultation with or seeking authorisation from the NEC.”
Kwabena Agyei Agyepong had in February written to the NEC to re-instate his membership. He stated that having been on suspension for six years was enough.
At their general meeting yesterday, May 10, the NEC considered the said letter and appeals from party stakeholders and re-instated him.
Kwabena Agyepong, despite his suspension, has been an active player in championing the political ambition of President Akufo-Addo.
It would be recalled that he toured all 16 regions of Ghana with the President during the 2020 election campaign and even mounted the podium to solicit votes for the President.
