It seems issues between Former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Koku Anyidoho and General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia is not ending anytime. The latter has dared his former boss, Mr Asiedu Nketia to come out with any shred of evidence suggesting he created problems for the late Professor John Atta Mills while serving as Presidential Spokesperson.
He rebuffed all the reasons being adduced by the NDC General Secretary to back his supposed expulsion deeming it as “utter hogwash”.
According to a letter from Mr Anyidoho addressed to Mr Asiedu Nketia on Wednesday, August 18, Koku Anyidoho reiterated: “I have been and continue to remain a very loyal member of the NDC – glued to our values of unity, stability and development”.
He has, therefore, issued the party a 72 hours ultimatum within which period they have to retract the notice of expulsion and, consequently, set aside the recommendations of the Disciplinary Committee against him.
“I hope that you shall accede to my demand such that in line with the spirit of the Constitution of the NDC, we are able to bring finality to this matter internally. Else, I shall be forced to seek redress in the courts of law that are characteristically not partial to exercising equity and fairness in all matters.”
This is the second letter written by Mr Anyidoho to Mr Asiedu Nketia, demanding information on his supposed expulsion since he had not received any correspondence on the process.
The former General Secretary-aspirant raises concerns about how a respectable party like the NDC with learned and esteemed persons could make such a “juvenile” and “ill-advised” procedural blunder.
“I shall not be pushed out of the NDC for reasons borne out of nothing but malicious perfidy,” he concludes his latest letter, which was copied to party bigwigs like Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin and Council of State member, ET Mensah. However, former President John Dramani Mahama was the party’s leader until after the December polls have not been copied.
