The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has re-instated the membership of Kwamena Agyei Agyepong – its former general secretary- six years after being on suspension.
His return was based on a passionate appeal made by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at a national executive council meeting on 10 May.
It will be recalled that about three months ago Kwabena Agyei Agyapong, wrote to the National Executive Committee of the party to consider rescinding its decision to suspend him indefinitely.
In his letter to the NEC, Mr. Agyapong pleaded with the council to lift their suspension of his 0arty membership which had been in place for six years.
Kwabena Agyapong, Paul Afoko (then National Chairman) and Sammy Crabbe (then a National Vice Chairman) were all suspended by the NEC of NPP for misconduct in 2015.
The National Executive Council of the party found Mr. Agyepong and the two others, guilty of violating Article 3(d) of the party’s constitution which enjoins members to publicly uphold the decisions of the party, through various acts.
He was also accused of engaging in “unilateral actions and activities without consultation of, or authorization by the NEC [National Executive Council].”
Mr. Agyepong during President Akufo-Addo’s reelection bid in 2020, was embedded with the Akufo-Addo campaign team during their tour of all sixteen (16) regions of the country. He addressed several rallies and made a case in support of the President’s plea to Ghanaians to renew his mandate.
