The suspension of Bernard Allotey Jacobs, former Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been updated into a sack.
A press release from the party explains that it took the decision to expel Allotey Jacobs because of the man’s misconduct and anti-party activities.
Mr. Jacobs has for a very long time been crusading against his own party, a thing that had led to the NDC suspending him.
“At our meeting on Wednesday 17th March 2021, the Functional Executive Committee of the NDC considered the report and recommendations of the Disciplinary Committee on the case or misconduct and anti-party behaviour brought against you Mr. Allotey Jacobs pursuant to articles 48(I) (b) and 8 (b) of the NDC Constitution,” the statement read.
“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 expulsion from the party.”
The statement, dated Tuesday, March 23, 2021, communicating the expulsion was signed by party General Secretary, Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia.
It said the party’s Disciplinary Committee made the recommendation which was subsequently adopted by the Functional Executive Committee unanimously.
Mr. Allotey Jacobs has been ordered to return any party property in his possession. The former Central Regional Chairman was also told that his expulsion also means forfeiture of any amounts of money, dues, or subscription he has made to the party.
“You are therefore by the decision of FEC, expelled from the National Democratic Congress and for that matter no more recognized as a member of the party and cannot carry yourself as such,” the sack letter read.
Allotey Jacobs has reportedly been penciled down by the NDC’s arch-rivals, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) for a ministerial position in what is a culmination of his flirtation with the governing party.
