Trouble is brewing in the United States chapter of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) as some members are up in arms against their secretary for hobnobbing with President Akufo-Addo.
USA Chapter Secretary, Mr. Steve Dei is being accused of compromising his office when he was captured in a video introducing the President of the Republic of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo during the latter’s visit in Chicago USA last week.
A member of the USA NDC Chapter, Lawrence Appiah-Osei is appealing to the executives of the Chapter to dismiss the secretary from office. In a petition cited by Ghana Crusader, Mr. Appiah-Osei concluded his secretary “…disrespected his office, the Chapter and the constitution of NDC.”
He added, “I see that our Secretary has been compromised and cannot … perform effectively in that highest position”.
In the impeachment letter, Lawrence disclosed that, the secretary refused the advice of his colleagues and also against the back drop that they demonstrated against the president a day earlier.
“The Secretary did that against the advice given to him by his NDC colleagues and also against the fact that his colleagues in the Massachusetts Branch had demonstrated against this same President a day earlier”.
Formal response to the petition is yet to come from the party.
Ghana Crusader can report that this internal bickering has made party members sharply divided over whether or not, the secretary ought to be given the sack.
