- Former Second National Vice Chairman of the NPP, Sammy Crabbe, has described his suspension from the party as 'illegal'
- He was relieved of his duties, along with the then General Secretary, Kwabena Agyapong, after a crucial meeting by the Disciplinary Committee of the party
Samuel Crabbe, the suspended Second National Vice-Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has described his suspension from the party as an illegal act.
Crabbe went ahead to say that John Boadu’s appointment as acting General Secretary of the party was a breach of the party’s Constitution, as there was no such description.
In an interview on Starr Chat by Bola Ray, on Wednesday, January 10, 2018, he is also stated “there’s nothing like that…in our Constitution,” he said. “It is better for people to shine their eyes, open them up and look at things".
In December 2015, the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the NPP in December 2015 affirmed the decision of the party’s Disciplinary Committee (DC) to suspend its Second National Vice-Chairman, Sammy Crabbe and the General Secretary Kwabena Agyei Agyepong.
Crabbe countered by stating that the decision was illegal, and therefore took the matter to an Accra High Court.
His suit was however dismissed in the year 2016.
The judge, Justice Sir Dennis Adjei, stated that the DC of the party had the right to hear the matter and also institute punitive measures against anyone who was found guilty of breaching the rules of the party.
