Koku Anyidoho explained the former President, who led the NDC prior to the 2016 elections ceased to be the leader of the party after the party lost the election.
National Executive Council of the NDC amended the party’s constitution and made Mr. Mahama then flagbearer and incumbent president, leader.
The General Secretary of the NDC in declaring former President Mahama as leader and flagbearer of the NDC quoted article 26(1) of the NDC to support the decision by the executives.
The article states: “the president of the Republic who is a member of the Party is the leader of the Party when in government.”
But speaking on Asempa FM’s 'Ekosii Sɛn' programme Wednesday, Koku Anyidoho said former President Mahama is no more leader after losing the 2016 general elections.
He indicated that, NDC National Chairman, Kofi Portuphy automatically becomes leader according to the party’s constitution.
“I don’t understand why people attack me when I say former President Mahama is not leader of NDC. It is in the party's constitution; I’m not making it up,” he stressed.
Koku Anyidoho is convinced with the introduction of the party's National Institute of Social Democracy School, such members will be educated.
