Four supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have petitioned the leadership of the party to get rid of General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong for “exhibiting gross misconduct”.
According to the NPP members their General Secretary has been “engaging in deals tantamount to venality while in his elected position as General Secretary”.
They also accused Mr. Agyapong of his continues support for the suspended Paul Afoko as Chairman of the party. “…This in our view is an act of mischievous contempt for the authority of the Party as a whole, including its elders, its leadership, and its structures.”
The petitioners are Chris Arthur, former TESCON-KNUST President; Adreba Kwaku Abrefa Damoa, London; Kwabena Afum Dankwa, London; and Kwame Baffoe, NPP Regional Youth Organiser, Brong Ahafo.

They further described Mr. Kwabena Agyapong’s comments in the media as, “always inimical, and counterproductive to the efforts made by the flagbearer, while he contributes little, or nothing towards building a strong Party, knowing very well that general and Presidential elections are less than a year away.”
The NPP’s national executives – Mr. Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyapong have both been accused by some members of the party as being moles in the NPP.
The petition was copied to the party’s National Executive Committee, National Council of Elders, the leader and presidential candidate Nana AKufo-Addo; acting Chairman Freddie Blay; and the Deputy General Secretary.
