Former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho says he is still a member of the party, despite the party issuing a letter announcing his suspension.
Mr Anyidoho speaking on Starr FM on March 11, 2021, said he has not received any letter communicating his suspension so he, therefore, believes he is still a bonafide member of the party.
The CEO of the Atta Mills Institute also added that even though he is still a member of the NDC, he does his things differently now.

The NDC in a statement signed by General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, dated February 8, 2021, said two separate petitions had been made to the Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the party against Mr. Anyidoho which is â€œviewed to be in breach of the Partyâ€™s disciplinary code for its members as contained in the NDC constitution.â€
Mr. Asiedu Nketiah said the suspension was with immediate effect and that the partyâ€™s disciplinary committee will take further action.
