"Let Myjoyonline and Ghanaweb know that the NDC has not suspended me. Do not fall for the jokes of False Press Releases. If I have been suspended; let them produce the evidence."

The NDC in February this year released a statement in which they said they have suspended Koku Anyidoho.

NDC in a statement confirming his suspension said two members of the party lodged a complaint against his conduct which is viewed to have breached the party's disciplinary code for members.

The petitioners are: Mr. Mubarak Abdul-Karim (Oti Reg. Conn. Officer). Eric Adjei (Bono Reg. Dep. Com. Off).

The party then held a meeting on January 20, 2021, and decided to suspend Mr Anyidoho and the petitions have been referred to the party's disciplinary committee for further action.
