The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expelled Bernard Allotey Jacobs, a former Central Regional Chairman of the party, over allegations of misconduct and anti-party behaviour.
It has also suspended Stephen Atubiga, a member of the party over similar offences.
A statement signed by General Secretary, NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, in Accra, said the decisions followed a Functional Executive Committee meeting.
It said Committees set up by the party to look into the allegations brought against Mr Jacobs pursuant to article 48(1) (b) and 8 (b) of its Constitution found him guilty of the accusations, adding that, it among other things, recommended that he should expelled immediately from the party.
“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 Allotey Jacob’s expulsion from the party.
It, therefore, cautioned him to with immediate effect stop holding himself as a member of the party.
On Mr Atubiga, the party said it reviewed its decision on his conduct pursuant to the profuse apologies and pledges he made to be of good conduct for a period of six months following a meeting with FEC on February 24, 2021.
“You also agreed to write officially on your Facebook wall retracting your earlier writings and to write officially to Professor Joshua Alabi apologizing personally to him and to refrain from such defamatory comments in the future,” it said.
It added that Mr Atubiga also failed to write the letter of apology to Professor Alabi as earlier promised.
“You are therefore by this letter to take note and notice is hereby given that your membership of the NDC is suspended, pending the hearing and final determination by the National Disciplinary Committee,” the statement said.
The statement further urged him to co-operate with the Disciplinary Committee for an expeditious determination of his case.
