Deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen, has said the suspension of the Former Central Regional Chairman of the NDC, Allotey Jacobs is in the ‘right direction’.
According to him, the party has every right to suspend any member who flouts its rules and regulations – hence, Mr. Allotey Jacobs’ suspension is justifiable.
“Honestly speaking I will not fault NDC. It is a political party with a constitution, so if you are a member, you have to obey their rules and regulations. If the party thinks Allotey Jacobs is flouting their rules, so therefore he must be suspended, I don’t know why others will still criticize,” he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.
Allotey Jacobs Could Be Sacked If
Obiri Boahene’s comment follows remarks by the opposition NDC’s General Secretary that Allotey Jacobs could be expelled from the party based on the gravity of his offense.
Asiedu Nketia believes Allotey Jacob’s actions are deliberate because he has been cautioned on several occasions by the party Chairman, Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo but to no avail.
“The worst of penalties is that he could be expelled from the party. Based on the gravity of his offense he could be asked to leave the party,” Johnson Asiedu Nketia established.
The opposition National Democratic Congress suspended its former Central Regional Chairman, Bernard Allotey Jacobs based on what it described as his “consistent anti-party conduct“.
Allotey was originally representing the opposition NDC until the current Communications officer of the party, Sammy Gyamfi, found it difficult to accommodate his independent views, stripping him of his representation.
