The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has suspended its Ayawaso North constituency chairman, Ahmed Tahiru.

The suspension follows Tahiru’s claim that the NDC National Vice Chairman, Alhaji Said Sinare, has supplied guns to some youth to cause mayhem in the upcoming December 7 polls.

Tahiru reported the matter to the police and handed over two guns, an AK-47 and a pump action gun he claimed Alhaji Sinare allegedly gave to cause mayhem.

The Accra Region Police command has begun investigations into the matter after inviting Alhaji Sinare to assist with investigations.

But, this action taken by the NDC Ayawaso North chairman, according to the party, is a breach of Article 46 (8) of the party’s constitution.

Why the NDC suspended him?

Explaining why Tahiru was suspended, the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the NDC, Mr Ade Coker explained that the indefinite suspension was because Tahiru failed to follow laid down rules for getting issues resolved in the party.

“We have structures in the party, if you have any grievances there is a way you go about it in the party, you report officially to the party and the party will investigate. But where we have a constituency chairman taking a whole national vice chairman to the police station without recourse to party intervention, we feel he’s gone too far, and we need to set him aside so that we can investigate the issue and then the right things would be done,” Mr Coker said in a radio interview with Accra based Citi on Thursday evening monitored by Graphic Online.
