NDC summons C/R Chair over Assin Central candidate’s suspension 

Story: News Desk

The leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has summoned the party’s Central Regional Chairman over the withdrawal of a Parliamentary Candidate.

The Central Regional Secretariat of the NDC in a statement issued on Thursday, June 27, announced the withdrawal of the Assin Central Parliamentary Candidate for the 2024 general elections, Nurein Shaibu Migyimah on moral grounds.

Complaints were filed against Nurein Shiabu Migyimah, and the NDC’s Central Regional Functional Executive Committee decided to withdraw his candidature with immediate effect after exhaustive investigations and deliberations.

In light of this, the Regional Functional Executive Committee wrote to the Assin Central Chairman of the NDC, informing him of the suspension of Nurein Shiabu Migyimah for six months.

But responding to this action, the party has requested the Central Regional Chairman to appear before the National leadership.

In a statement issued by the General Secretary, Fifi Fiavi Kwetey on Friday, June 28, the party said the Regional Functional Executive Committee took the action without the approval of the National Executive Committee.

“..The above-mentioned action if true, was taken without the approval of the National Executive Committee and is considered inappropriate, and in contravention of due process and the provisions of articles 40, 41, 46 and 48 of the NDC constitution. 

“In lieu of that, you are thereby requested to appear before the National Leadership of the party on Tuesday 2nd July 2024 at 2 pm together with your Regional Secretary to explain how this letter was sent out without the approval of the party national leadership,” part of the statement read.
