The National Democratic Congress (NDC), has finally parted ways with its former Deputy General Secretary, Samuel Koku Anyidoho, on the grounds of ‘misconduct’ and ‘anti-party behaviour’.
In a statement issued by the NDC’s General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the NDC’s Functional Executive Committee (FEC) agreed at a meeting on Tuesday, July 27, 2021, to adopt the recommendations of the National National Disciplinary Committee, leading to the expulsion of the former Director of Communications at the Office of the President, Koku Anyidoho.
Prior to the announcement of his dismissal today, July 27, Koku Anyidoho had been making series of allegations against the leadership of the party, calling into questioning the credibility of former President John Dramani Mahama, and a host other personalities in the party.
The NDC’s former Deputy General Secretary had also become notorious for taking the NDC to the cleaners, and rubbishing the efforts of the party on social media, while furtively showering tons of praises on the New Patriotic Party and Preisdent Nana Akufo-Addo to spite his first love, the NDC.
On the back of this recurring behaviour, the NDC took a decision on Wednesday, January 20, to suspend the embattled party member, whose comments and engagements were becoming unbearable for the party, especially amongst the grassroots.
Following his suspension, an investigation was commenced by the party’s National Disciplinary Committee to probe the circumstances of his fall out with the party and make appropriate recommendations to that effect. The outcome of the investigations is what has finally led to the NDC’s decison to severe ties with one of its former chief scribes.
In the letter declaring his expulsion from the party, Koki Anyidoho is also required to return all properties belonging to the party which are currently in his custody. He is also expected to distant himself from the National Democratic Congress, and publicly refrain from styling himself as belonging to the NDC.
All monies, contributions and subscriptions paid by him to the party have also been declared forfeited in accordance with article 48 (10) of the NDC’s constitution.
Below is the statement announcing his expulsion, together with the recommendations of the National Disciplinary Committee.
