General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia says the party had been under pressure to expel its former deputy general secretary, Koku Anyidoho.
Speaking to Citi news, he said Koku’s expulsion will make members of the party hapy because it had been longtime coming.
According to him, although there were allegations against Koku, due process had to be followed in order to purge himself of all wrongdoings however, Koku failed to meet the committee for a whole year.
“We think that this decision will actually bring entire jubilation across the country because we have been under enormous pressure to act speedily, but we kept our membership reminded that we have all subscribed to a party constitution and due process for everything that we do so they should exercise patience and let us go through the full cycle.”
“So our members were actually impatient with us over this decision and if we had listened to them even including his constituents, we would have even acted in breach of the party constitution, but we felt that every offender should have his day in court. So let us afford him the opportunity to purge himself of any wrongdoing. But unfortunately, he declined that opportunity and we didn’t have any option other than to bring the full force of the law on him.”
