The leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has announced that Hopeson Adorye, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, Nana Ohene Ntow, and Boniface Abubakar Saddique are no longer members of the party after they publicly endorsed and campaigned for Independent presidential candidate, Alan Kyerematen.
In a statement, the NPP said the four had forfeited their membership of the party for their flagrant breach of the Party’s Constitution, particularly Articles 3(5) (A)(4) and 3(9)(1).
The statement signed by the NPP General Secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong noted that Article 3(5) (A) (4) of the NPP Constitution urges all members of the Party to “abide by and publicly uphold the decisions of the Party.”
Additionally, Article 3(9) (I) of the Constitution provides that “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.”
The Party urged its members to remain steadfast in their support of the duly elected Presidential Candidate, Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia, and to work together to achieve victory in the 2024 polls.
