Sacked former NDC Central Regional Chairman Benard Allotey has described leadership of his former party as brainless. It follows a letter communicating to Mr. Jacobs, his expulsion from the opposition party for what it says is “anti-party behavior”. His sacking which comes months after his suspension, was recommended by the party’s disciplinary committee and unanimously adopted by the Functional Executive Committee.
“The Functional Executive Committee acting in compliance of article 48(1) of the NDC Constitution has unanimously adopted the report and accepts fully its recommendation for your expulsion from the party,” the letter signed by General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketiaon Tuesday, March 23 said.
Reacting to the development, Mr. Allotey Jacobs scoffed at his dismissal.
I don’t whether their brainless or what. When somebody has come out to say that I no longer belong to your party then you also come to say you have I am expunging you from the party. It’s absolutely balderdash”. He told Accra based Starr FM.
He continued “That expulsion letter is pointless and baseless. It has no purposes and direction. They are still confusing their supporters. It’s just a matter of confusion because the NDC is full of confusion. And then more people will be coming out against that leadership. For me I keep quiet, I am no longer with them and I don’t want to be with them. I don’t believe in personality worship, I don’t believe in sycophancy and hypocrisy, that is what I will fight against. I am saying I have seen a new leadership of this country that is steering the affairs this country successfully and I will support that because Ghana first.
According to the former NDC Central Regional Minister who has pledged his unflinching support for President Akufo-Addo of the governing NPP, he is yet to be officially communicated to by his former party about the sack.
“They have not given me any letter. These are the tricks that they use. They will not even send you the letter. You see these people I don’t know how to classify them, they are just brainless. That’s what they normally do. If you are in that party you are in the devil’s den” Mr. AlloteyJacobs stated.
“I will never join the NPP, I will never be an NPP person but I am supporting Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia.Simple”.
