Suspended NDC Central Regional Chairman urges supporters to halt protests

The suspended Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Prof. Richard Asiedu, has called off planned demonstrations in the region in solidarity with him.

The demonstrations, including press conferences, were planned by irate supporters and party sympathizers in the region to protest the decision of the party’s Functional Executive Committee (FEC) to suspend Prof. Asiedu over the withdrawal of the Assin Central Parliamentary Candidate, Nurein Shaibu Migyimah.

However, in a statement, Prof. Asiedu urged calm and respect for the party’s decision, saying: “The party hierarchy has taken a decision, and the least we can all do is to respect that decision. Press conferences and demonstrations in solidarity with me would further divide us and deepen our woes.”

He expressed gratitude to party members and sympathizers who had called to empathize with him, including the Minority Leader of Parliament, Hon. Ato Forson, and the Central region MPs caucus chairman, Hon. Ricketts Kweku Hagan.

Prof. Asiedu urged the party’s ranks and file in the region to remain calm and support all candidates in various constituencies to achieve his agenda of 20 seats and 60% victory for John Dramani Mahama in the 2024 elections.

“I’m not bigger than the party. Let’s not fight a harmless decision. We have elections to win, and the Central region will deliver for the great NDC,” he added.
