A private legal practitioner, Nana Obiri Boahen has described the decision by the NPP to expel Hopeson Adorye, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, Nana Ohene Ntow, and Boniface Abubakar Saddique was a step in the right direction.
According to the former Deputy General Secretary of the party, the move will have no effect on the party’s changes in the upcoming polls.
“This decision will have no negative impact on the party. The affected persons misbehaved; they breached the party’s law, and so they have been reminded that they are no longer members of the NPP.
There is nothing wrong with that. If President Akufo-Addo, the Vice President, Chief of Staff, or Obiri Boahen leaves the party today, it would have no impact on us or our chances,”
The NPP, in a statement, said these individuals have, among other things, publicly endorsed the candidature of a person apart from the duly elected Presidential Candidate of the Party, His Excellency Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia.
“Despite their flagrant breach of the Party’s Constitution, particularly Articles 3(5)(A)(4) and 3(9)(1), the forenamed men still hold themselves out as members of the NPP.”
The party further asked members to hold themselves as true members of the elephant family.
“In line with these constitutional provisions, it is the view of the NPP that Hopeson Adorye, Nana Ohene Ntow, Boniface Abubakar Saddique, and Yaw Buaben Asamoa have AUTOMATICALLY FORFEITED their membership of the Party. They are, therefore, no longer members of the Party.
The NPP entreats its members to remain true to their duties as per Article 3(5) of the party Constitution. We further call upon our members to remember that the Party’s focus is to unite its ranks and rally the support of Ghanaians to make history by winning the 2024 general elections.”
