The NPP Central Regional Steering Committee has replaced the suspended first-vice chairman, Horace Ekow Ewusi although a final determination of his case is yet to be made, ABC News can report.
Ekow Ewusi was replaced by the 2nd Vice-Chairman of the Region, Kingsley Kofi Karikari-Bondzie.
This decision was taken on Friday, December 13, 2019, after a meeting was held by the Regional Steering Committee of the party on behalf of the Executive Committee.
According to the Committee, Mr. Karikari-Bondzie will act in 1st Vice Chairman capacity pending the final determination of the status of Mr. Ekow Ewusi at the Disciplinary Committee.
Mr Ewusi was suspended from the party after he refused to respond to a petition by one Edward Okraku Adum, who accused him of engaging in criminal acts including drug peddling.
He was also accused of escaping from prison in the UK, as well as, illegally auctioning seized excavators from mining sites.
“It was on the basis of this gross indiscipline exhibited by Mr Ewusi that the Regional Chairman directed the Regional Secretary to refer Mr Ewusi’s refusal to respect, honour and respond to the party letters and directives,” the party said.
The Regional Executive Committee, on the 31st of July, 2019, adopted the Regional Disciplinary Committee’s recommendation to suspend Mr. Ewusi, indefinitely. This decision was later upheld by the National Steering Committee in August.
