NDC suspends Stephen Atubiga

Stephen Atubiga, by a letter signed by General Secretary

Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has been suspended from the

National Democratic Congress (NDC) with immediate effect

By the letter dated Tuesday, March 23, his matter has also been

referred to the party’s Disciplinary Committee for further action.

It comes on the heels of the expulsion of former Central Region

Chairman of the NDC, Bernard Allotey Jacobs.

Mr Atubiga, who came to the limelight as a result of his

conviction by the Supreme Court during the 2013 election petition,

is said to have made disparaging and unfounded comments

about some of the party’s key senior members including former

flag bearer aspirant Professor Joshua Alabi.

But he promised to apologise and retract his comments at a meeting

with the Functional Executive Committee of the party.

“You also agreed to write officially on your Facebook wall retracting

your earlier writings and to write officially to Hon. Joshua

Alabi apologizing personally to him and to refrain from

such defamatory comments in future,” Mr Nketia’s letter said.

“However, recent publications on social media attributed to you

on March 8, March 12 and March 14 among others, denigrating

the party and individuals in the party indicate that you are not

only in breach of your own promises and hence not reliable but

you are further denting the image of the party contrary to

Article 47(1) (a, b) of the party’s constitution,” he added.
