The raucous honeymoon between Koku Anyindoho, the former Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and his party has come to an end as the party expels him.
In a letter to Mr. Anyidoho the NDC said it found Mr. Ayindoho guilty of “misconduct and anti-party behaviour.”
The NDC may be referring to the open anti-NDC rhetoric of Mr. Anyindoho in the past months, following his alleged secret cross-carpet to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) acting in compliance of Article 48 (1) of the NDC Constitution unanimously adopted the report and accepts full responsibility for your expulsion from the Party,” the sack letter read.
The NDC confirmed that Mr. Anyidoho cannot be “recognized as a member of the party and cannot carry [himself] as such.”
He has been asked to return any party property in his custody and “shall also forfeit any money, dues, or subscription fees that you may have made to the party,” the NDC indicated to Mr. Anyidoho.
Before this expulsion, the party had suspended the embattled Ayindoho on February 8, 2021.
The dismissal of Anyindoho is a culmination of his behaviour and complaints from several members of his party who are convinced that he was deliberately disparaging the NDC to cause a political disadvantage for the main opposition party.
He appears to be in support of every criticism of the NDC by the governing NPP and had gone ahead to use his social media to propagate his anti-NDC rhetoric.
