The Editor for the Informer Newspaper who doubles as the Executive Director of the Atta Mills Institue, Mr. Andy Kankam has slamed the Executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), for suspending Koku Anyidoho from the party.
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have suspended Samuel Koku Anyidoho from the party with immediate effect.
Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the party in a letter on Monday said at a meeting on January 20, this year, the Functional Executive Committee (FEC) considered two separate petitions from two members.
He explained that two petitioners lodged an official complaint against his former deputy “which is viewed in breach of the party’s disciplinary code for its members as contained in the NDC constitution.”
Mr Mobarak Abdul-Karim (who is the Oti Regional Communication Officer), and Eric Adjei (Bono Regional Deputy Communication Officer) brought a case against the Chief Executive Officer of the Atta Mills Institute.
According to the chief scribe, after it deliberated on the petition, they took a decision in accordance with Articles 46(1), 46(6) and 46(8)(b) of the party’s constitution.
Subsequently, it has suspended Mr Koku Anyidoho membership with immediate effect and will refer the petitions to the party’s disciplinary committee for further action.
Mr. Andy Kankam who is a well known member of the NDC said, there is no reason for Johnson Asiedu Nketiah to suspend Koku Anyidoho from the party.
According to him, it doesn’t make sense if Mr. Asiedu Nketiah suspended Koku Anyidoho based on the petition by one Mr. George Adjei.
“I will be very disappointed if Johnson Asiedu Nketiah suspended Koku Anyidoho based on the petition that lacks merit”, he said.
“This suspension will not stop Koku Anyidoho from realizing his dreams”, he said in an interview with Kumasi based Oyerepa fm monitored by Africannewsgh.
