The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako has kicked against calls for the reinstatement of the party’s General Secretary and other national executives.
They are Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, the General Secretary, Paul Afoko, the National Chairman, Sammy Crabbe, First National Vice Chairman amongst others cautioning against moves by the National Executive Committee (NEC) members of the party to take any such decision.

“I will resist any move by NEC to reinstate him and other suspended executives in the party,” he vowed accusing them of working against the party’s successes.

“I am going to do everything humanly possible within my powers to stop them from being reinstated as Governor of Ashanti Region,” Wontumi as affectionately called revealed.

According to him, elements in the party including Mr. Agyepong’s motive was to see the party forever in opposition prior to the 2016 elections and will be politically unwise to reinstate them to assume their roles.

“Not everyone in the party wanted NPP in power like we are seeing now and Agyepong was one of them,” Mr Boasiako alleged.

He pointed out that “it will even be politically wise to bring the General Secretary of the NDC to take a position in NPP than to reinstate Agyepong, whom I know worked against NPP in opposition”.

“After all, Asiedu Nketia and Kofi Portuphy contributed to Nana Akufo-Addo’s victory in the 2016 polls by sleeping on their jobs as General Secretary and National Chairman of NDC respectively.”

Some polling station executives of the party in the Brong-Ahafo Region are calling for the reinstatement of the suspended General Secretary and other national executives ahead of the party’s national delegate’s conference next year.

Meanwhile, the acting First Vice Chairman of NPP, Mr. Frederick Fredua Anto has said Messrs Agyepong and Crabbe cannot be reinstated in the immediate future.

According to him, the embattled executives are still members of the party but they cannot be reinstated to take back their positions as National Chairman, General Secretary and First Vice Chairman.

“If they are reinstated now, they will take the acting General Secretary and National Chairman positions from John Boadu and Freddie Blay respectively who led us to victory in the 2016 polls and that is my difficulty here,” Mr Anto stated. –mynewsgh.com
