The Publisher took it as a joke when we heard that Sammy Crabbe, a suspended Vice Chair of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) would be contesting for the party’s National Chairman position while he remains on suspension.

To our shock, Mr. Crabbe went on radio confirming that indeed he would contest to become National Chairman. It makes us wonder what his intent and actual motives could be. We are tempted to believe Crabbe only wants to be a ‘bad boy’ muddying the waters.

Whiles on suspension, Crabbe has not conducted himself with remorse or in a manner that shows he is sorry for whatever wrong he did to warrant the punishment meted to him. He rather has mounted several radio stations to speak in ways that has brought the image of his party into public disrepute.

His utterances have, many times, become political currency for rivals of the NPP, yet Crabbe has deluded himself into thinking he is in a good standing to become the party’s National Chairman.

It is incredible that such a smart thinker would arrive at such an infantile conclusion.

In any case, leading members of the NPP, and persons with legal brains for that matter, have said that no suspended officer of the party is considered to be in good standing. And it is as clear as the biblical ‘Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin’, that any party member that is not in good standing cannot and would not be allowed to contest for any leadership position even if it is at the polling station level.

Unless Crabbe wants to show his intent to contest, get disqualified and then use that disqualification as a Launchpad to misbehave, we see no other meaningful reason of his agenda.

The Publisher calls on him to drop the curtains on his silly drama. The tomfoolery should be cut short if Crabbe wants to regain the lost confidence a majority of his party members had in him.

This is a young entrepreneur who had whole heartedly and loyally served his party very well for years.  He even rose to become Greater Accra Regional Chairman. And eventually Second National Vice Chairman.

Crabbe can regain that respect depending on how he comports and conducts himself.

Ours is to only make this harmless suggestion to him to pipe down and do the right thing rather than this wild goose chase.

The discussion should be what Nana Addo and his NPP government are doing right and achieving for Ghana. Why would Crabbe want to direct traffic and shift the discussion to that of a suspended party member who wants to become National Chairman when the party’s rules do not allow such.

To us, Crabbe is behaving like a spoilt child crying over his spoilt toys in the middle of the night when the child knows very well the parents stay in a compound house and other tenants are asleep.
