Ghana’s interest is no longer important to the NPP – Buaben Asamoa

Mr. Yaw Buaben Asamoa, a former Director of Communications for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), says the party has shifted its focus to self-interest rather than prioritizing the development of Ghana.

Mr Asamoa, who was once the Member of Parliament for Adentan, emphasized that the NPP has deviated from its original ideals.

In an interview with Citi TV on November 21, Mr Asamoa explained his decision to join Alan Kyerematen’s “Movement For Change,” asserting that the party’s current trajectory does not align with the interests of Ghana.

He emphasized the need for change, stating, “We believe it is time that the right things are done. The elephant is supposed to serve the people of Ghana. When it gets to the point where it becomes self-serving when it is supposed to look at the interest of Ghana, it begins to focus more on its interests and appearance, then it’s time to move on and serve the public.”

Yaw Buaben Asamoa and three other prominent NPP members – Hopeson Adorye, Nana Ohene Ntow, and Boniface Abubakar Saddique – publicly endorsed and campaigned for independent presidential candidate Alan Kyerematen.

As a consequence, the NPP stated on Monday that the four individuals had forfeited their membership in the party for violating the party’s constitution, specifically Articles 3(5)(A)(4) and 3(9)(1).

The NPP highlighted Article 3(9)(I) of its constitution, which stipulates that a member who stands as an independent candidate against the officially elected party member, or who joins or declares support for another political party or independent candidate when the party has sponsored a candidate in a general or by-election, automatically forfeits their membership in the party.
