Information emerging from the headquarters of the ruling political party, National Democratic Congress (NDC) is that the party’s former Central Regional Chairman, Bernard Allotey Jacobs was suspended because he disrespected the party’s National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo.
The educated fisherman, as Allotey is known and called has been suspended from the party by the Functional Executives Committee (FEC) of the NDC.
His case has been referred to the Disciplinary Committee of the party for final determination.
Commenting on his suspension on Okay FM monitored by GhanaNewsPage, the General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia revealed that the leadership of the party had to resort to the suspension of Allotey Jacobs because he all efforts to bring him to order failed.
According to him, members of the Functional Executives Committee (FEC) of the party including the National Chairman made several efforts to whip Allotey into line.
Incessant calls on Allotey to do the needful, Asiedu Nketia said fell on deaf ears as he failed to heed any advice from Mr Ofosu-Ampofo.
“Our National Chairman who is also a church elder personally called on Allotey to remind him on the implications of his public conducts, he did this severally but Allotey failed to heed or respect what his National Chairman kept saying…,” Asiedu Nketia said.
Asked if the party took into consideration the number of years Allotey had spent in the NDC before deciding to suspend him, General Mosquito said the party’s rules is no respecter of person or title.
“There is no part of the party constitution that says one cannot be suspended from the party after spending several years in the party…our constitution is simply no respecter of person,” he added.
He further hinted that the suspension of Allotey from the party could be declared null and void after six months if the disciplinary committee fails to act on the case.
“Allotey’s suspension will be declared null and void if the Disciplinary Committee of the NDC fails to write to him or act on the case after six months…but if he fails to respond to their queries after six months, the suspension still holds since he is the one delaying the process…,” he said.
