Although Mr. Nortey rendered an apology to President Nana Akufo-Addo and the party in a TV interview, the NPP says it’s yet to receive an official apology.
Nana Obiri Boahen on Accra FM’s midday news on Thursday, 4th May said, “He (Nii Noi) hasn’t written any letter to the party to officially apologise for his actions. He was a party member but by the rules if you decide to contest as an independent candidate you cease to be a member of the party, and he did just that.

“He was advised against it, even President John Kufuor and Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo spoke to him to rescind his decision but he didn’t listen.”
In 2016, Nii Noi won the NPP’s primary to contest for parliament but his main contender Philip Addison challenged the result of the polls, and subsequently won the re-run of the primary.
Mr Nortey, unhappy about the outcome, contested the seat as an independent candidate despite numerous calls on him by some party bigwigs including Nana Akufo-Addo and former President John Kufuor to rescind his decision.
