‘I miss serving NPP’ – ‘Nostalgic’ Kwabena Agyepong hints return to politics

A former general secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwabena Agyepong, has revealed that he will revive interest in active politics as the 2020 election draws closer.

Mr Agyepong was suspended indefinitely, together with the party’s former Chairman, Paul Afoko; and former Second Vice-Chair, Sammy Crabbe.

It came after the party said in December 2015, that the two had been working against the interests of NPP presidential candidate Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP ahead of the 2016 general election.

In an interview with JoyNews monitored by theghanareport.com, Mr Agyepong revealed that the suspension had been lifted.

He explained that despite his suspension, he contributed significantly to the 2016 election. “I still stand by what I did and worked hard for the party. I love the party,” he said.

Mr. Kwabena Agyepong, who is now the Executive Secretary of the Ghana Institution of Engineers, said he had nostalgic feelings about his former post and wished to return to contribute to the party.

“I miss serving my party; I miss serving my country,” he told the host of PM Express, Evans Mensah, on Tuesday.

“There is a higher calling of serving the country, and I believe sooner rather than later, I’ll be back in there,” he revealed and added that, “I’m too young to leave it [politics].”

Mr Agyepong said he had maintained a good relationship with President Akufo-Addo despite claims he worked against Akufo-Addo’s ambition to become president.

The engineer noted that his friendship with Mr Akufo-Addo dated back to the time before they both entered politics.

“I have always had a good relationship with him. He has been like a senior brother to me for many years. I still see him since he has been president…he calls once in a while…I call him too; I go to him”
