The opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC has finally expelled its former Deputy General Secretary, Koku Anyidoho, from the party for ‘anti-party behaviour’.
According to the Functional Executive Committee (FEC), Mr. Anyidoho is no longer a member of the party and also added that he is no longer to hold himslef as a member of the NDC.
NDC expels Koku Anyidoho: This decision of him being sacked was taken on Tuesday, July 27th, 2021.
Why was he sacked?
According to a letter signed the General Secretary of the party, Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia in informing Anyidoho about the decision taken by FEC, it said that he [Koku] has been found guilty of the allegations of “misconduct” and “anti-party behaviour”.
Mr. Anyidoho has since February 8th, 2021, been serving a suspension following his consistent criticism of the party.
His actions made some members of the NDC dislike him as they always kept complaining about his conduct and calling for him to be expelled.
In January, FEC decided to act on two separate petitions brought before it by Oti Region’s Communications Officer, Mobarak Abdul-Karim, and Bono Region’s Deputy Communications Officer, Eric Adjei.
Below reads part of the letter dated Tuesday, July 27th, 2021.
“The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) acting in compliance of Article 48(1) of the NDC Constitution unanimously adopted the report and accepts full responsibility for your expulsion from the party,”
“You are, therefore, by the decision of FEC expelled from the National Democratic Congress and for that matter, you are no more recognised as a member the party and cannot carry yourself as such.”
Koku Anyidoho is expected to return any party property in his custody and shall forfeit any monies, dues or subscription fees he might have made to the party.
