Sammy Crabbe to run for NPP chair slot

Suspended Second Vice Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Crabbe, has entered the chairmanship race of his party.

Mr Crabbe confirmed his intention on Monday, 12 February.

A poster for his campaign says he intends to “build a party for all.”

The poster markets him as having a “proven track record in championing the rights and welfare of all party executives and members”.

A year to the 2016 general elections, the National Executive Committee of the NPP suspended Mr Crabbe indefinitely alongside then-General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong and then-Chairman Paul Afoko, for, among other things, making utterances that were injurious to the chances of the then-opposition party’s presidential candidate at the time, Nana Akufo-Addo.

Their suspension has not yet been reversed. That notwithstanding, Mr Crabbe has entered the race to give Acting Chairman Freddy Blay some competition.
