Samuel Koku Anyidoho, the former General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress has issued a cryptic reply to the party’s decision to expel him.
In a social media post shortly after the statement confirming his dismissal was made public, Anyidoho likened himself to the biblical Joseph who was sold by his brothers but turned out to the be saviour of the family.
In a tweet, he said “When Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery; they did not know they were selling him into his God-given destiny to become a Prime Minister in Egypt. What evil men mean for wickedness; God turns it around for good. I am a Son of God.”
The CEO of the Atta Mills Institute was sacked by the NDC following a recommendation by the party’s Functional Executive Committee.
In a July 27 statement issued by General Secretary, Asiedu Nketia, the party ordered Koku Anyidoho to return every party property in his possession.
“The 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,” the letter said.
“You are, therefore, by the decision of FEC expelled from the National Democratic Congress and for that matter you are no more recognised as a member the party and cannot carry yourself as such.”
But renowned pollster, Ben Ephsonhas suggested that Koku Anyidoho could seek redress in court.
“If you look at what has been done concerning Allotey Jacobs and Atubiga I think that I saw it coming. I wasn’t surprised at all. I think that unlike Allotey and Atubiga, he may decide to challenge his expulsion in the law court,” he told TV3.
