NDC suspends three executives

The National Democratic Congress has suspended three constituency executives in the Greater Accra region after they blamed some executives for the party’s defeat in the 2016 elections.

The three are Emmanuel Ashalley Tetteh, Communications Officer, Klottey Korle; Kodzo Keglo Hamenya, Secretary, Okaikoi North; and Stephen Afutu, Communications Officer, Okaikoi Central.

The trio were recently sued by National Organiser of the NDC Kofi Adams after they accused him of stealing party funds and causing the party’s defeat in the 2016 elections.

They described Mr Adams as a “useless National Organiser and Campaign Coordinator” who, together with other party stalwarts caused the NDC’s defeat in the 2016 elections.

“All Kofi Adams knows is to steal money and cars and disrespect everybody,” the group said, adding: “Our party must investigate Stan Dogbe, Dr Opuni, Omane Boamah, Felix Ofosu Kwakye and Kofi Adams. The campaign money that they have hidden must be collected from them immediately.”

According to them, Mr Adams “brought no strategy into the 2016 elections; we have not seen any proactive skills directed towards winning the 2016 elections. His attention was only on what he can selfishly take away from the party. We want to know from JM the wisdom in making Kofi Adams the National Campaign Coordinator.”

But a statement by the General Secretary of the opposition party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, stated that the action by the three was contrary to the code of conduct and disciplinary code of the party (Articles 45 and 46).
