Bernard Allotey Jacobs has hit back at the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, for critising him.
Ofosu-Ampofo in a damning rebuke to what he considered as anti-party agenda by the former Central Regional NDC Chairman and Koku Anyidoho, former Deputy General Secretary, urged supporters of the party to ignore them.
“Let’s ignore Koku Anyidoho and Allotey Jacobs and focus on our party,” Ofosu-Ampofo reportedly said, 3News.com reported.
He added that despite the duo being suspended, the party will listen to the supporters’ wishes to take further actions against them. “We will go and look exactly what to be done to ensure sanity,” he said.
Reacting to the comments by the NDC’s National Chairman, Allotey Jacobs went on a tirade slamming the behaviour Ofosu-Ampofo.
“Ofosu Ampofo behaves like a toddler,” he stated. “He thinks we don’t know that he is nurturing an ambition to become the flagbearer of the party,” Allotey Jacobs told Akoma FM on Monday 14, 2021 and
Meanwhile, Allotey Jacobs said he no longer belongs to the NDC.
Speaking on Accra-based Peace FM’s Kookrokoo programme on Wednesday, March 10, and monitored by YEN.com.gh, Allotey Jacobs said he had paid his dues to the umbrella fraternity and it is time for him to move on.
The former Central Regional Chairman of the NDC said he now supports President Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
According to him, the policies being rolled out by the Akufo-Addo administration made it easy for him to declare his support for the President and his vice.
The NDC in May 2020 suspended him for “persistent anti-party conduct”.
The suspension was according to articles 46(1), 46(6), and 46(8) of the party’s constitution.
