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.
