The opposition National Democratic Congress has dismissed its former Deputy General Secretary, Samuel Koku Anyidoho from the party.
The party is citing allegations of misconduct and anti-party behaviour as basis for the recommendation for his outright expulsion from the NDC.
According to the party, its Functional Executive Committee (FEC) arrived at the decision finding Mr. Anyidoho guilty of the offence.
A statement issued by the NDC’s General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia said that FEC unanimously adopted the report in accordance with Article 48 (1) of the NDC’s constitution and accepts full responsibility for his expulsion from the party.
It added: “you are therefore by the decision of FEC expelled from the NDC and for that matter, you are no more recognized as a member of the Party and cannot carry yourself as such.”
It further stated: “you are by this letter and pursuant to Article 48 (10) of the Party’s constitution directed to return any party property in your custody and you shall also forfeit any moneys, dues or subscription fees that you may have made to the party.
The final expulsion of Mr. Ayindoho from the NDC does not come as a surprise as he has been on suspension for over a year.
In an interview on News night yesterday, Mr Nketia said the expulsion of Mr Anyidoho from the party would not affect the activities of the NDC in any way.
Likening the NDC to a moving locomotive train, he said the party’s members will board and alight at various stages of the party.
