- Nana Ohene Ntow, former General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), is nonchalant about his recent expulsion from the party for supporting John Alan Kyerematen
- Ohene Ntow, familiar with party rules, states the NPP constitution has not been breached in the decision taken by the party, but he has also not done anything untoward
- Despite his past leadership role, Ohene Ntow claims he has felt ostracised for the past 13 years within the party
Nana Ohene Ntow has reacted to his dismissal from the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and has said he remains unfazed by his expulsion from the party, stressing his support for Alan Kyerematen remains unwavering.
Speaking during a radio interview, Nana Ohene Ntow said he was not surprised by the decision by the party.
He stated in Twi that his understanding of the party's Constitution suggests that the decision to expel him and three others from the party is in order.
He disclosed that he had not personally received any official communication and learned about the expulsion through a press release and subsequent media inquiry.
Ntow, Yaw Buaben Asamoah, Hopeson Adorye and Boniface Abubakar Siddique have been expelled from the NPP for throwing their support behind Alan Kyerematen, who resigned from the NPP after the super delegates congress in August.
Kyerematen cited ill-treatment by the party's leadership.
Kyerematen, who placed third in the congress, has since founded "Movement for Change," and declared his intention to run as an independent candidate in the upcoming 2024 general election.
Nana Ohene Ntow said his expulsion also comes as no surprise because, for 13 years, he's been ostracised from the party by leadership.
Buaben Asamoa says Bawumia's rigged election means NPP has nothing new to offer
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has reported in a separate story that former NPP Communications Director Yaw Buabeng Asamoa, has criticised the selection process of Vice President Bawumia as the NPP's presidential candidate.
Asamoa contends in a statement that the lack of genuine choice in candidate selection for both NPP and NDC has led to a loss of trust in duopoly politics and increased apathy among voters.
He stressed the growing demand for credible third-force leadership, suggesting that the current process may result in a decline in voter enthusiasm for the two main political parties.
