The dismissal of the former deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress has been met with variety of reactions across the political divide. Whilst members of the NDC appear to be happy with the decision to expell the "rebellious comrade" whose recent public commentaries have been antagonistic towards the party, others including Dr Baah of the NPP has reasons to disagree with the decision.
Speaking on GH-One TV, Dr Richard Amoako Baah, a Political Science lecturer took a swipe at the NDC over the dismissal of Mr Anyidoho. Dr Baah argued that the NDC could have used informal procedures like mediation to amicably resolve the tension and seeming disagreement between Anyidoho and his former boss, Johnson Asiedu Nketia instead of resorting to disciplinary procedures. He added that Mr Anyidoho has the right to disagree with or criticize the party.
But Mr Murtala Mohammed, MP for Tamele Central finds the views espoused by the Political Science lecturer as hypocritical and inconsistent. He pointed out that Dr Amoako Baah defended the decision of the NPP to suspend Mr Paul Afoko and others indefinitely for misconduct.
Mr Samuel Koku Anyidoho's dismissal from the NDC follows the consideration of the report and recommendations by the Disciplinary Committee of the party over his anti-party conducts. Reacting to his dismissal on social media, Mr Anyidoho says like Joseph in the Bible, he believes that this will turn out to be a blessing to him.
