Suspended former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho has said that he is still a proud member of the main opposition political party.
According to him, he has never intended to quit the political party he loves dearly despite the fracas between him and the leadership of the party.
Koku Anyidoho was on February 9, 2021 suspended by the Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the party in a letter which was copied to the media.
“At its meeting on the 20th January, 2021, FEC considered two separate petitions from two registered members of the National Democratic Congress (copies attached) each of which lodged an official complaint against your conduct which is viewed to be in breach of the Party’s disciplinary code for its members as contained in the NDC Constitution. The petitioners are: Mr. Mobarak Abdul Karim (Oti Reg. Com. Officer), Eric Adjei (Bono Reg Dep. Com. Off.),” the letter dated February 8, 2021 read.
“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.
“Please find attached your copy of a Separate letter of referral to the Disciplinary Committee and copies of the petitions.
“It is our hope that you will co-operate with the Disciplinary Committee for an expeditious determination of this case…,” the statement concluded.
Reacting to the suspension a month later, the former press secretary of late President John Mills said he is still a member of the NDC adding that he has never considered quitting the party.
“I have not received any letter to that effect. I have not received any news. I’m a bona fide member of the NDC just that I’m doing different things now, The delegates made a choice and I have never been angry. Even that day at Trade Fair, I stayed till the very end. I’m not leaving the NDC no matter what happens,” Koku said.
