Stephen Atubiga, a member of the communications team of opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) becomes the second party member to be suspended this year after former deputy secretary general, Koku Anyidoho.
“At its meeting on Wednesday 18 March, the Functional Executive Committee (FEC) reviewed its decision on your conduct pursuant to the profuse apologies and pledges you made to be of good conduct for a period of six months following your meeting with FEC on 24th of February, 2021.
“You would recall that FEC summoned you to a meeting in respect of a news item attributed to you and published on Ghanaweb on Saturday 13 February, 2021 captioned “Only Useless Politicians Retire Poor.” In the said publication you made disparaging and unfounded comments about key senior members including Honourable Joshua Alabi,” a letter signed by General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, said.
It added: “You are therefore by this letter to take note and notice is hereby given that your membership of the NDC is suspended, pending the hearing and final determination by the National Disciplinary Committee.”
