The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has suspended former Deputy General Secretary of the party Koku Anyidoho.
This suspension comes as a result of a petition submitted to the party by some NDC members who are unhappy with the conduct of Mr Anyidho.
A statement signed by NDC General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, dated February 8, 2021, said two separate petitions had been made to the Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the party against Mr Anyidoho which is “viewed to be in breach of the Party’s disciplinary code for its members as contained in the NDC constitution.”
Mr Asiedu Nketiah said the suspension is with immediate effect and that the party’s disciplinary committee will take further action.
Mr Anyidoho has been described as a throne in the flesh of the party after he lost in his bid to lead the party as its General Secretary. He believes he was not treated fairly and has since been having a go at the party on traditional and social media.
