The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has sacked Frederick Ameyaw from office as the director for external affairs, an official party statement said on Thursday.
Kwame Amponsah-Kyeretwie (alias “Stonash”) replaces him with immediate effect.
“This decision was taken by the national executive committee of the party at its meeting on Friday (23 December 2022),” said the statement issued by the NPP general secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong.
Amponsah-Kyeretwie will be working in the office of the general secretary with “specific responsibility [for] co-ordinating the affairs of the NPP’s external branches, as well as the party’s relationship with sister political parties across the globe”.
Stonash has been an active member of the party’s external branches and has held various positions in the NPP within and outside the country, the statement said.
He also once served as the deputy communications director of NPP-USA.
