NPP sets up three-man committee to probe recent comments by Kwabena Agyapong

The New Patriotic Party has set up a 3-man committee to look into recent comments made by suspended General Secretary, Kwabena Agyapong.

Kwabena Agyapong was suspended by the party in 2015, together with then National Chairman, Paul Afoko and Vice chairman, Sammy Crabbe.

The suspensions followed a series of petitions brought forth by some NPP members who accused the officials of engaging in actions that undermined the party’s political fortunes.

Kwabena Agyapong, unlike, Mr. Afoko and Sammy Crabbe, did not challenge the decision in court. But recently, in separate media interviews, he has questioned the resolution by the NPP’s National Executive Committee.

At the party’s recent extraordinary delegates congress in Kumasi, for example, he told journalists that, his suspension was unconstitutional.

“Two years is too long a time for the General Secretary to be on suspension. Our constitution does not provide for that,” he argued.

It appears the hierarchy of the governing party is not entirely enthused about his comments.
