The Eastern Regional branch of the National Democratic Party (NDP) has suspended its deputy regional communications director, Christian Tutu, indefinitely.

A letter of suspension, signed by the party’s regional secretary, Gideon Amoasi Ampah, and copied to the Daily Statesman, said Mr Tutu was suspended as a result of his actions on March 30 2020, which violates multiple sections of the party’s code of conduct.

“On March 30 2020, you violated multiple sections of our code of conduct that every executive is expected to follow. This has not been the first time you have done this either. There are recorded incidents on February 10 and 11 of similar infractions,” the party said in the letter.

“You are hereby relieved from your duties as the Deputy Regional Communication Director effective today, March 30 2020.You are not to be seen transacting/communicating or doing anything on behalf of the party ( NDP) until further notice,” the letter added.

The letter further directed Mr Tutu to contact the regional chairman or secretary if he needs any further clarifications on his suspension.

Campaigning against party

Throwing more light on the suspension, in an interview with the Daily Statesman, the regional secretary said the deputy communications director was suspended for campaigning for the founder and leader of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), Percival Kofi Akpaloo.

He said his action was against Article 22 (1F) and (1J) of the party’s code of conduct, adding that members of the party, especially leaders, must always show commitment to the party and its activities.
