Former Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Yaw Buaben Asamoa, has predicted a mass exodus of NPP members to the Movement for Change in support of former Trade Minister, Alan Kyerematen.
He launched a strong criticism against the party, characterizing it as an “empty barrel.” Mr Asamoa attributed this characterization to what he perceives as the infiltration of mafia tactics by a select few within the party.
Speaking on Asempa FM, the former Member of Parliament for Adentan stated that the NPP has strayed from its founding principles, leading to a decline in its appeal. Buaben Asamoa, who is a prominent member of Alan Kyeremanten’s Movement for Change, accused certain individuals within the party of employing destructive mafia tactics, causing significant harm.
“NPP now an empty barrel. There is nothing in it because the mafia tactics have destroyed the party. There are a lot of bigwigs supporting Alan, and soon, they will have no choice than to come public because they know they are doing the work of God,” he stated.
Yaw Buaben Asamoa, along with others including Hopeson Adorye, former General Secretary Nana Ohene Ntow, and former Madina MP Boniface Abubakar Saddique, was expelled from the NPP after publicly endorsing former Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen, who is running as an independent presidential aspirant.
Since his expulsion, Buaben Asamoa has been vocal on various media platforms, expressing serious concerns about the current state of the NPP.
His critique includes allegations of mafia tactics and a departure from the party’s founding principles, indicating a significant internal rift within the party.
