The Central Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs has been fired from the party.
In a press release signed by General Secretary Johnson Aseidu Nketia, the party said that its disciplinary committee found Mr Jacobs guilty of allegations of misconduct and anti party conduct brought against him.
“The Committee’s report which is herein attached for your attention, found you guilty of the said allegations of misconduct, anti-party conduct and recommended among other things your immediate expulsion 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 your immediate expulsion from the party,” the statement read.
The party further stated that Mr Jacobs is no longer recognised as a member of the party neither can he hold himself as such and therefore ask him to return any property belonging to the party that are in his possession.
However, reacting to this statement from the party, Mr Allotey Jacobs indicated that before this letter came, he had “already left the party”. He went on further to describe the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia and the FEC as “living in a fantasy”.
Meanwhile, Mr Allotey Jacobs was suspended from the NDC in 2020 for what the party described then as his persistent anti-party conduct.
