The General Secretary of the main opposition NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has discounted the supposed strong ties between late President Prof. JEA Mills and embattled former Deputy General Secretary, Koku Ayindoho.
â€œProf. Atta Mills had his own problems with the retention of Koku Anyidoho even in his officeâ€ he told Bonohene Baffuor Awuah on Ghana Kasa on Kasapa 102.5 Fm.
According to him, the NDC member who was expelled from the party days ago is only appropriating the legacies of late Prof. John Evans Atta Mills for his personal interest.
â€œKoku Anyidoho is not special to Atta mills in anyway to the extent that weâ€™ve given him the opportunity to appropriate his legacies to appear that he has some special relationship or ties with Prof. Mills.
â€œSome of us were closer to Atta Mills than Koku Anyidoho, but we donâ€™t take advantage of our closeness with the big people and brag about it. So let it be said and known that Koku Anyidoho doesnâ€™t have any exclusive entitlement to Atta Millsâ€™ legacies because they were close or something,â€ he stressed.
Koku Anyidoho was expelled following alleged misconduct and anti-party behaviour cited in a letter to him on Tuesday, July 27, 2021.
â€œThe Functional Executive Committee (FEC) acting in compliance of Article 48 (1) of the NDC Constitution unanimously adopted the report and accepts full responsibility for your expulsion from the Party,â€ the letter added.
Prior to the latest development, he had been serving a suspension that begun on February 8, 2021, after his consistent criticism of the party.
