The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expelled its former Central Regional Chairman Bernard Allotey Jacobs from the Party.
A letter addressed to the excommunicated by the party’s General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, dated March 23, 2021 with reference number NDC/HQ/G14/02/02 revealed.
According to the letter, Mr. Allotey Jacobs’ expulsion was founded on reports and recommendations of the party’s Disciplinary Committee which found him guilty of some reported misconducts and anti-party behaviours.
The letter read: “At our meeting on Wednesday 17th March, the Functional Executive Committee of the NDC considered the reports and recommendations of the Disciplinary Committee on the case of misconducts and anti-party behaviour brought against you Mr. Allotey Jacobs pursuant to Article 48 (1) (b) of the NDC constitution.”
“The Committee’s report which is herein attached for your attention found you guilty of the said allegations of misconducts, anti-party conducts and recommended among other things your immediate expulsion from the party,” it added.
The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the party, following the recommendations by the Disciplinary Committee, expelled its former Central Regional Chairman in accordance with Article 48 (1) of the party’s constitution.
“You are therefore by the decision of the 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,” the letter read.
Mr. Allotey Jacob’s was also directed to return any party property in his possession and to “forfeit any moneys, dues or subscription fees made to the party.”
Prior to the party’s decision, Mr. Allotey Jacobs was suspended on May 6, 2020 for misconducts it described as “persistent anti-party conduct,” a case which was referred to the Disciplinary Committee for further action.
