National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for the La Dade – Kotopon Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Nii Amasah Namoale, has apologized to the leadership of the party for his unruly behavior during the party’s November 21 presidential and parliamentary primaries.
Mr. Namoale in a letter dated December 7, 2015, said “I write to offer an unqualified apology to the Leader, National Executives and the entire membership of our great party for the things I said in the aftermath of our primary election in the Dade-Kotopon Constituency.”
The letter titled “Letter of Apology to the party I love” and addressed to the National Chairman and General Secretary also stated that “I recognize that my statement did not reflect the united front our party seeks to promote. I must state that I am a keen believer in the tenet of our party and I have absolute faith in its structures. I am therefore by this letter apologizing for the said remarks, which were made in the exuberance of the events following our elections. Please accept the assurances of my highest respect and regard.”
Mr. Namoale, who was re-elected as the party’s Parliamentary Candidate for the constituency together with the Ningo Prampram Constituency’s Sam George George, were suspended by the Greater Accra Regional Branch of the party for misconduct last week.
He is said to have accused the regional executives of working against his re-election while Sam George reportedly instigated party members against the regional executives and accused them of “perpetrating fraud.”
Meanwhile reports from the national leadership of the party suggest that, it has nullified the decision to suspend Mr. Sam George.
