Former Deputy General Secretary of the biggest opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Koku Anyidoho is resolute all will be well despite his expulsion from the party.
In a series of tweets, Mr Anyidoho borrowed the popular mantra of President Nana Akufo-Addo saying “This too shall pass”.
In another tweet, he said: “I continue to remain focused on growing the Atta-Mills Institute, building Asomdwee Park, & flying high the legacy of President Atta-Mills. My bible tells me that, in ALL things, I should give thanks to God Almighty for His grace and mercies. I love Ghana”.
In a separate tweet again he noted that “Vindication lies in the womb of time. Shalom”.
Mr Anyidoho was expelled from the party on Tuesday, 27 July 2021 for misconduct and anti-party behaviour.
A letter from the party addressed to Mr Anyidoho to that effect said: “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”.
The NDC said Mr Anyidoho cannot be “recognised as a member of the party and cannot carry [himself] as such.”
Additionally, the letter said Mr Anyidoho “shall also forfeit any money, dues, or subscription fees that you may have made to the party”.
Mr Anyidoho was first suspended by the party after a meeting by FEC on 20 January 2021.
At that meeting, FEC, according to a letter to Mr Anyidoho signed by General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, “considered two separate petitions from two registered members of the National Democratic Congress, 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 Regional Communication Officer) and Eric Adjei (Deputy Communication Officer, Bono Region).
“At the end of its deliberations, the following decisions were taken in accordance with articles 46(1), 46(6), 46(8)(b) of the party’s Constitution: that with immediate effect, your membership of the NDC has been suspended; that the petitions be referred to the party’s 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 petition against your conduct”, the letter directed.
