Koku Anyidoho’s Sacking Will Make NDC Members Very Happy - Asiedu Nketiah
The opposition National Democratic Congress NDC, has justified its decision to expel its former Deputy General Secretary, Koku Ayindoho from the party. Acccording to the party’s General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, Mr. Koku Ayindoho was given ample opportunities to desist from his conduct of maligning the party but he
was adamant. He said this compelled the party to bring the full force of the party’s constitution also on him too. Mr. Koku Anyidoho was expelled over what the party describes as misconduct and anti-party behaviour in a letter to him on Tuesday, July 27, 2021. The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) acting in the compliance of
Article 48 (1) of the NDC Constitution unanimously adopted the report and accepts full responsibility for your expulsion from the Party, the letter added. Prior to the latest development, he had also been serving a suspension that begun on February 8, 2021, after his consistent criticism of the party. The General Secretary
of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, in interview said his expulsion will bring widespread jubilation to party members. According to him, the party members also including Koku Anyidoho’s constituents had also been clamoring for this decision long ago. We think that this decision will actually bring entire jubilation across the
country because we have also been under enormous pressure to act speedily, but we kept our membership also reminded that we have all subscribed to a party constitution and due process for everything that we do so they should exercise patience and let us go through the full cycle. So our members were actually impatient with us over this decision and if we had listened to them
even including his constituents, we would have even acted in breach of the party constitution, but we felt that every offender should have his day in court. So let us all afford him the opportunity also to purge himself of any wrongdoing. But unfortunately, he also declined that opportunity and we didn’t have any option other than to bring the full force of the law on him.
