The National Executive Committee of the New Patriotic Party, NPP, has finally rescinded its decision to indefinitely suspend former General Secretary, Kwabena Agyei Agyepong.
The committee ruled on the matter last Monday, January 25, 2021, after a meeting was organised to deliberate on the lifting of the suspension of Kwabena Agyepong.
In a report filed by peacefmonline, the committee's decision to lift the ban was based on his active involvement in Akufo-Addo's campaign in the 2020 elections together with other events.
In view of this, Kwabena Agyepong is free to seek or contest any position in the party as a true member of the NPP.
In 2015, Kwabena Agyapong, Paul Afoko and Sammy Crabbe were all suspended by the National Executives of the NPP for gross misconduct on their part.
He was found guilty of violating Article 3(d) of the NPP's constitution which states that members were to publicly uphold the decisions of the party through various acts.
Kwabena Agyepong was also accused of engaging in actions and activities without consulting and getting authorization from the National Executive Council of the party.
The engineer by profession will however not be reinstated as the party's general secretary as there is a substantive General Secretary in the person of John Boadu.
Prior to this new information, Kwabena Agyepong in a report filed by CitiNews, wrote to the NPP, stating that six years was enough punishment for whatever acts of indiscipline he had engaged in.
In other news, President and founder of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe, has urged the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) to abdicate her post after the 2020 election petition hearing.
According to him, Jean Mensa, who is the returning officer of the December 2020 presidential elections, lacks the competence to lead the country’s election management body.
“If I were the EC, I'd resign after this court hearing,” he stated in a Facebook post on Wednesday, February 3, 2021.
