The Acting National Chairman of the NPP, Mr Freddy Blay has made an emphatic statement that the hierarchy of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is yet to receive any official petition demanding the reinstatement of its suspended General Secretary, Mr Kwabena Agyepong.
More support groups from some constituencies and polling station executives of the NPP in the Brong Ahafo Region, CapeCoast are building up for restoration of the suspended General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwabena Agyepong, as some party activists have joined the appeal for his immediate reinstatement.
The petitioners argued that, his conduct towards the party, even after his indefinite suspension in 2015, was evidence of his unwavering loyalty.
However, the acting National Chairman of the NPP, Mr Freddy Blay has however said the NPP had no intention of reversing what he called justified suspensions.
This is regardless of a number of groups making appeals in the media for the NPP hierarchy to forgive him.
“Nothing has come before us. The National Executive Council took the decision. The National Council endorsed it. Nothing has been done about it… they were suspended indefinitely for some good reasons and nobody has thought it proper that this matter should be raised again,” he noted.
The NPP suspended its 2nd Vice Chairman, Sammy Crabbe, alongside Mr. Agyapong in 2015, after they were accused of publicly rebelling against the party’s decision to indefinitely suspend its National Chairman, Paul Afoko.
Mr. Afoko and Mr. Crabbe, subsequently filed a suit over their suspension, but both suits were thrown out by the court.
Unlike the two, Mr. Agyapong did not seek legal action, which some have cited as proof of his loyalty to the party and an argument in favour of his reinstatement.
