Former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Director of Communications Mr. Yaw Buaben Asamoa claims that the party has moved its emphasis from Ghana’s growth to self-interest.

The former Adenta Member of Parliament, Mr. Asamoa, emphasized that the NPP has strayed from its founding principles.

In a November 21 interview with Citi TV, Mr. Asamoa gave his reasoning for joining Alan Kyerematen’s “Movement For Change,” claiming that the party’s present course does not serve Ghana’s interests.

He emphasized that reform was necessary, saying, “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 officially sponsored and campaigned for independent presidential candidate Alan Kyerematen, along with three other notable NPP members: Hopeson Adorye, Nana Ohene Ntow, and Boniface Abubakar Saddique.

The NPP announced on Monday that the four people had lost their party membership as a result of their violations of Articles 3(5)(A)(4) and 3(9)(1) of the party constitution.

The NPP emphasized Article 3(9)(I) of its constitution, which states that a member automatically loses their party membership if they run as an independent candidate against the officially elected party member or if they join or declare their support for another political party or independent candidate in a general or by-election where the party has sponsored a candidate.
