The internal structures in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will whip any aspirant who goes contrarily to the constitution of the party, according to the General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia.

He said “we are very committed to the regulations of the party and I m not a committee of enquiry on my own”.

The NDC scribe made the comment while reacting to the comment by the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, that some appointees of the Mahama-led administration were not fit.

“There are structures that deal with these things.  Those structures will have to collect information to find out what has been said or has not been said”, he explained.

He said “our party is not a party of instance justice; it is party of due process to allow us to do justice”.

In a related development, the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament is likely to be hauled before his party’s disciplinary committee for some comments the party deems to be unsavoury.

National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams told Joy FM that the party would take the appropriate steps against Alban Bagbin in due time.

“You just gave indication of...party’s disciplinary processes and they would be invoked at the appropriate time…” he said.

Kofi Adams’ comments follow some jabs Mr Bagbin threw at former President John Mahama while on his flagbearership campaign tour of the Volta Region.

The Nadoli Kaleo Member of Parliament told some party faithful in the Volta Region that Mr Mahama’s poor leadership skills cost the party in 2016.

“You struggle at the grassroot, you harvest for us to win, usually after that where do you count? That is one of the reasons why you used to hear my voice criticising my own people. Because I could see afar that this driver was driving recklessly and he would get into an accident”…

“I was giving the warning signals. So when I started raising those issues, if my brothers and sisters in NDC had taken note and worked hard, I don’t think we would have lost the 2016 elections with almost one million votes,” he said.
