Hopeson Yaovi Adorye, a former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate for the Kpone-Katamanso Constituency, has been invited before the National Complaints Committee of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) for breaching the party's code of conduct.
According to a statement signed by the NPP General Secretary, Justin Frimpong Kodua, Hopeson Adorye and another member of the party, Ekow Vincent Assafuah, the Member of Parliament for Tafo Pankrono constituency, are to report before the Committee for making declarations in support of one of the party's Presidential Hopefuls.
The General Secretary noted that the two members acted in outright defiance of their code of conduct issued by the NPP National Council in 2021 to regulate the conduct of the Presidential and Parliamentary primaries of the party.
He cautioned the members to uphold their code of conduct and act accordingly.
"We wish to further reiterate that the leadership of the Party is determined and committed to ensuring that activities of all Party executives or officers, individuals, groups, supporters and loyalists of presidential and parliamentary hopefuls, do not breach the Party's Code of Conduct for presidential and parliamentary primaries.
"The Party wishes to further state that the institution and enforcement of these measures are not intended to aid the electoral advantage of any prospective candidate but to prevent tensions that often arise in the lead up to presidential and parliamentary primaries and secure a united Party front for the 2024 general elections," parts of the statement said.
