NDC to take further actions against Allotey Jacobs, Koku Anyidoho – Ofosu-Ampofo reveals

NDC to take further actions against Allotey Jacobs, Koku Anyidoho

National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC),

Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, has said the leadership of the party will

heed calls from supporters to take further actions against

Koku Anyidoho and Allotey Jacobs who have all been

suspended from the party.

In a radio interview, Mr Ofosu-Ampofo said:

“What I can tell our supporters is that let us ignore

Koku Anyidoho and Allotey Jacobs and focus on our party”.

“As we speak, they have all been suspended from the party.

If you wish that we take further actions against them

following their action we will listen. We will go and look

at exactly what has to be done to ensure sanity.

“Only last week a newspaper published with the headline

‘John Mahama you are no longer leader of the NDC,

hand over to Ofosu-Ampofo to come and redeem

the party’ which was attributed to Koku Anyidoho.

“It is not Koku Anyidoho who will teach us what

the NDC’s constitution says. We have a constitution

and we know what the constitution says.”

The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the NDC

suspended Mr Anyidoho, who is a former Deputy General

Secretary of the NDC and Mr Jacobs, a former Central Regional

Chairman of the party, with immediate effect.

In the case of Mr Anyidoho, his suspension letter stated

that the petitions from Oti Region’s Communications

Officer, Mobarak Abdul-Karim, and Bono Region’s

Deputy Communications Officer, Eric Adjei, have been

referred to the Disciplinary Committee for further action.

“You are, therefore, by this letter to take note, and notice

is hereby given, that your membership of the NDC is

suspended pending the hearing and final determination

of the petitions against your conduct,” Johnson Asiedu Nketia,

who was contested against by Mr Anyidoho at NDC’s last

national executive congress, stated in the letter dated

Monday, February 8, 2021.

Since losing the 2020 elections, Mr Anyidoho has

taken to Twitter to make comments that have not

gone down well with many members of the party.

Regarding Mr Jacobs, his letter signed by

Mr Ofosu-Ampofo said he was suspended for

“persistent anti-party conduct.

“The FEC of the NDC, acting on behalf of the

National Executive Committee of the party, at its meeting

held on Wednesday, the 6th day of May 2020,

has suspended you forthwith as a member of the party,

pursuant to articles 46(1), 46(6) and 46(8)

of the party’s constitution for your persistent

anti-party conduct,” the letter indicated.

He has since declared that he no longer belongs

to the NDC. To him, if the NDC says it has suspended him,

he has also “dismissed” himself from the party.
