Mr. Stephen Atubiga, a member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Communication Team has called on the party leadership to show Allotey Jacobs the door out of the NDC.
This comes after the former Central Regional Chairman of the NDC endorsed President Akufo Addo ahead of the December polls. Allotey Jacobs had also discredited the NDC flagbearer insisting there is no way he could win the December 7 elections.
Allotey is currently on suspension after the NDC in a letter signed by its National Chairman, Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, said “The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the National Democratic Congress, acting on behalf of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party, at its meeting held on Wednesday, the 6th day of May, 2020, has suspended you forthwith as a member of the party, pursuant to articles 46(1), 46(6) and 46(8) of the party’s constitution for your persistent anti-party conduct”.
However, Mr Atubiga wants the embattled regional chairman kicked out of the party for consistently dragging former president John Dramani Mahama.
Speaking on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana he said, “I have a problem that my party too hasn’t issued a statement in sacking Allotey and these are some of the things I have problems with. If the man says I’m dying, dig the grave for him to die.”
“I know the role Allotey played in bring John Dramani Mahama into power but the mere fact that you have a problem with a party member does not mean it must apply to the party as a whole because that is not leadership”. Atubiga said.
