Samuel Koku Anyidoho, the former deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has rejected his expulsion from the party, stating he is still a loyal member.
In a letter dated Tuesday July 27 2021 and addressed to Anyidoho, the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah announced that the Functional Executive Council (FEC) of the party has expelled the former from the party for “misconduct” and “anti-party behaviour”.
Reacting to the circumstances surrounding his expulsion in an exclusive interview with Beatrice Adu on The Big Bulletin, Anyidoho said the action of the general secretary is illegal and void because the party failed to give him any hearing.
“Precisely so, I was not invited before any disciplinary committee to defend myself and as such the recommendations of the committee cannot be legal and binding,” Anyidoho said.
Meanwhile, Anyidoho has in a letter dated 18 August 2021, given the NDC a 72-hour ultimatum to reverse the decision and settle his alleged case of misconduct internally or face him in court.
“So that letter you have seen is signed by me and I have given him [Asiedu Nketiah] 72 hours window to let us deal with this matter internally, but if he does not allow us to deal with this matter internally then I’ll deal with him in the court where I believe there shall be non-partial adjudication of the issue,” Anyidoho stated.
