NPP sacks Yaw Buaben, Hopeson Adorye and 2 others

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) leadership has declared that Hopeson Adorye, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, Nana Ohene Ntow, and Boniface Abubakar Saddique are no longer party members due to their open endorsement and campaigning for Alan Kyerematen, an independent running for president.

The NPP said in a statement that the four had lost their party membership as a result of their egregious violations of Articles 3(5) (A)(4) and 3(9)(1) of the Party Constitution.

NPP General Secretary Justin Kodua Frimpong signed the statement, which stated that all Party members are obligated by Article 3(5) (A) (4) 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 called on its members to cooperate in order to win the 2024 elections and to continue unwaveringly supporting Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia, the legitimately elected presidential candidate.

Below is the full statement

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 Bawurnia.

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” In addition, Article 3(9) (I) 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 elections.
