Bawku group: Reinstate Kwabena Agyepong

A group calling itself Concerned Patriots of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for Bawku Central Constituency in the Upper East Region, have backed calls for the reinstatement of suspended General Secretary of the party, Kwabena Agyepong.

They said his suspension should not be a conduit for dismissal and that his rich experience in the party’s administration can help constitutional amendment processes and also foster party unity.

At least 200 members of the party, consisting thirty-one polling station executives and other party supporters, have signed a petition to the party headquarters for the reinstatement of Kwabena Agyepong.

Speaking at a press conference in Bawku, Spokesperson of the group, Abdulai Muntaica, said Mr Agyepong has demonstrated enough remorse to the decision of the party for his suspension and showed immense support for the party’s victory in the 2016 general elections.

“We wish to state that, the suspension was in the right direction, but we want to add that it has served its purpose.

“We wish to make an honest appeal to the party’s hierarchy to begin the process of reinstating the suspended General Secretary to his elected position.

“We are also making a passionate plea on this singular intra-party discord, to the President to intervene in his own way as the leader of the party, so that we may go back to normalcy and see our general secretary back to office.

“We are conscious of the fact that Mr Agyepong is not the only suspended executive, but the fact that although he disagrees with the suspension, he accepted it and has also conducted himself without any form of defiance to the decision of the party.

“Even in his suspension, he went ahead to aid the party in his own small way by donating GH¢2,000.00 to some constituencies across the country, few days to the general elections which Bawku Central constituency was a beneficiary.

“We think he has acted in good faith enough, and in obedience to the decision of the party, has been patriotic to the party’s principles, representatives and agents, even in his complete disagreement of the suspension and deserves a call back to his elected position.

Several groups and individuals from across the country had been calling for the reinstatement of the suspended General Secretary, who was suspended alongside party chairman, Paul Afoko, and Second National Vice Chairman, Sammy Crabbe. –
