Koku Anyidoho gives Asiedu Nketia 72 hours to retract his evil sacking letter

The Founder and President of the Atta Mills Institute, Samuel Koku Anyidoho has given Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, 72 hours to retract a notice of his expulsion from the party or face him in court.

Describing his expulsion from the party as purely and coldly calculated, Mr. Anyidoho accused Asiedu Nketia of vilifying and holding personal vendettas against him.

According to the former NDC Deputy General Secretary, he was never a party, nor privy to any disciplinary proceedings against him as purported by Asiedu Nketia in the media that he was served notice to appear before the Disciplinary Committee, of which he failed to honour.

“I noticed with wonder and some amusement, the dedication you paid to vilifying me in the media and pronouncing me as an ‘ex-member’ of the NDC in the recent past. In your supposed expulsion letter, Sir, which you, in true gutless fashion, have failed to serve on me personally, you state that I was expelled for ‘anti-party conduct and indiscipline’. I must state that these terms are so broad, vague, amorphous and can be subjected to gross abuse as has been in the present case,” he argued.


He further asked “What really constitutes anti-party conduct? Article 47(G) of the NDC’s constitution enjoins all party members to uphold the fundamental human rights and freedoms as enshrined in Chapter 5 of the 1992 Constitution of the Republic of Ghana, so, how come you are, per your arbitrary actions, violating my rights as a citizen of Ghana?”

“Does your arbitrariness also not breach the constitution of the NDC and amount to anti-party conduct? Must you also not be expelled for blatantly breaching the constitution of our great party? Or do you only reserve this honour for the people you hold a personal vendetta against?” he wondered.

Koku Anyidoho emphasized that he has always been and will continue to remain a very loyal member of the NDC who is glued to the party’s values of unity, stability and development, hence, wonders why Asiedu Nketia questions his integrity.

“You, Sir, never worked at the presidency, yet you choose to rant about my working relationship with President Atta Mills, hitting at my integrity and claiming ‘I created problems for President Mills’. Do you have any concrete evidence to back such loose vicious talk? Or is your vile vendetta against me so strong that it is causing you to conjure imaginative untruths?”

Reminding Asiedu Nketia of his loyalty to the party, Mr. Anyidoho said “I worked as your deputy for four years (acting in your stead on countless times when you were either on leave or on official assignments) with an unblemished record, thus, it comes as no surprise, your inability to question my sincerity, loyalty and work ethics and makes it sufficiently clear that you deliberately made ill-intentioned remarks about my working relationship with President Atta Mills just to score some cheap points. I implore you to provide even a shred of true evidence that I ever created any problems for you.”


Questioning why the leaders of the NDC rushed to banish him from the party, he said “And, even more concerning to me is how such a respectable party headed by such learned and esteemed persons, could make a procedural blunder this juvenile and ill-advised? The answer is that it was purely and coldly calculated. It is sufficiently clear that these actions, fueled by pure unadulterated malic were deliberately orchestrated to ensure my indefinite removal from the party.”

He, therefore, demanded a retraction of his expulsion and also to set aside the committee’s report that found him guilty of anti-party conduct since it was “founded on an illegality and is void ab initio”.

Mr Anyidoho stated that he will be forced to seek redress in the courts of law if he is not reinstated as a member of the party within 72 hours, insisting that he would not be pushed out of the NDC for reasons borne out of nothing but malicious perfidy.

“I hope that you shall accede to my demand such that in line with the spirit of the Constitution of the NDC, we are able to bring finality to this matter internally. Else, I shall be forced to seek redress in the courts of law that are characteristically, not partial to exercising equity and fairness in all matters.
