The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expelled its former Central Regional chairman, Allotey Jacobs, for “indiscipline”.
At our meeting on Wednesday 17 March, the Functional Executive Committee of the NDC considered the report and recommendations of the Disciplinary Committee on the case of misconduct and anti-party behaviour brought against you Mr Allotey Jacobs pursuant to article 48(i) (b) and 8 (b) of the NDC Constitution.
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 Tuesday 23 March 2021 letter signed by General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketiah said.
It added: “The Functional Executive Committee… has unanimously adopted the report and accepts fully its recommendation for your expulsion from the party.
“You are therefore by the decision of FEC been expelled from the National Democratic Congress and for that matter no more recognised as a member of the party and cannot carry yourself as such.”
Mr Jacobs has however stated that he is no longer a member of the opposition party.
He was suspended from the party since May 2020 for “persistent anti-party conduct,” according to a letter signed by NDC national chairman Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo.
According to Jacobs, he now supports President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo due to his “unprecedented leadership” style.
In an interview, Mr Jacobs said “I am no longer part of the National Democratic Congress. President Akufo-Addo is providing the kind of leadership that is unprecedented in our recent history, and that’s how come I have quit the NDC”.
