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”.

NDC to take further actions against Allotey Jacobs, Koku Anyidoho –
“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.
