NPP sacks Hopeson Adorye and three others in the party.

In a release by the General Secretary of the Party, Justin Frimpong Kodua, it has taken note of Hopeson Adorye, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, Nana Ohene Ntow and Boniface Abubakar Saddique who clearly support Alan Kyeremateng for President. 

This is despite the fact that the NPP has an elected flagbearer in the person of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia. 

Quoting relevant constitutional provisions, the General Secretary said Hopeson Adorye, Nana Ohene Ntow, Boniface Abubakar Saddique and Yaw Buaben Asamoa have “AUTOMATICALLY FORFEITED” their membership of the Party and are, therefore, “no longer members of the Party.”

Hopeson Adorye a week ago said although he supports Alan Kyeremateng for President, he is still a member of the party. 

Days ago, former Ejisu Lawmaker Owusu Aduomi was in the news canvassing support for Alan Kyerematen.

The former MP met a section of chiefs and opinion leaders in the Ejisu Constituency to campaign for Alan. The party did not include the Ejisu MP in the “automatic forfeiture” list.

But members such as Alhaji Abubakar Siddiq Boniface, Nana Ohene Ntow and Yaw Buaben Asamoa who have been spotted in Alan Kyeremateng regalia leading his campaign stops are now no longer with the NPP.

FORFEITURE OF MEMBERSHIP PURSUANT TO THE PROVISION OF ARTICLE 3(9)(1) OF THE NEW PATRIOTIC PARTY CONSTITUTION

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; His Excellency Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia. 

In spite of 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”*

Also, Article 3(9)(1) of the Constitution provides as follows:

“A Member of the Party, who stands as an independent candidate against the officially elected member of the Party, or who joins or declares his or her support for another Political Party, or for an independent candidate, when the Party has sponsored a candidate in a general or by-election, automatically forfeits his or her membership of the Party”.

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 bear in mind that the Party’s focus is to unite its ranks and rally the support of Ghanaians to make history by winning the 2024 general election
