NDC suspends Central regional chairman Prof. Richard Asiedu

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) says the Central Regional Chairman, Prof. Richard Asiedu has been suspended. In a letter, the General Secretary of the party, Fifi Kwetey explained that the move was a result of the withdrawal of the party’s 2024 Parliamentary Candidate for Assin Central, Mr. Nurein Shaibu Mijima.

The party added that the move was decided on at the Functional Executive Committee (FEC) meeting held on Tuesday 2nd July 2024. “The purported withdrawal of the Assin Central Parliamentary Candidate is unlawful as neither you nor the supposed “Regional Functional Executive Committee” has the locus or power or authority to withdraw a serving Parliamentary Candidate of the party from a national election.

“The reasons which underpinned the purported withdrawal of the Assin Central Parliamentary Candidate are totally false and without any basis whatsoever. “You played a lead role in the purported withdrawal of the Assin Central Parliamentary Candidate in clear violation of express directives given to you by the General Secretary and the National Chairman of the party”.

According to the General Secretary, in view of his actions without consulting the party he has been suspended. “Consequently, FEC has resolved to suspend you and hereby suspends you from your position as the Central Regional Chairman of the NDC for a period of one month effective immediately.”
