Samuel Koku Anyidoho, a former aide to the late president, John Evans Fiifi Atta-Mills, has lashed out at the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the suspension of the former chairman of the Central Region, Bernard Allotey Jacobs.
Taking to Twitter, a social media platform, Anyidoho declared that “8 years ago, this is how Allotey Jacobs and Koku Anyidoho mourned the death of President Atta-Mills. Today, some Johnny-Just-Comes, want to nail us because we were loyal to a good man?”
The caption came with a photo which showed the two men clad in funeral attire and weeping uncontrollably.
In another tweet, he declared that "Anyone who is dreaming of downplaying the importance and pivotal role President Atta-Mills played as far as the renaissance of the NDC is concerned will be the biggest joker on earth.”
Allotey Jacobs was suspended by the NDC for what it described as “persistent anti-party conduct”.
A statement signed by the national chairman of the party, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, showed that the suspension was in line with “Articles 46(1), 46(6) and 46(8)(b) of the party’s constitution.”
Allotey Jacobs’ suspension followed a decision of the NDC to boycott Peace FM’s morning show, Kokrokoo, hosted by ace journalist, Kwami Sefa Kayi.
The party explained that the station had adopted an “unfair panelling system that the Production Team of that program has continuously foisted on the NDC over a number of months”.
Meanwhile, the host Peace FM's morning show, Kokrokoo, Kwami Sefa-Kayi, has stated emphatically that there is no way he is going to drop Bernard Allotey Jacobs from his programme.
According to DGN Online, Sefa-Kayi indicated that the immediate past Central regional chairman of the NDC will continue to be part of his Wednesday panel.
He said it will be over his dead body to take Allotey Jacobs off his show. He hinted that the dedication of Allotey Jacobs alone, in participating and giving his opinion on the show, was something he cannot do without.
