The disciplinary committee of the Lower Manya Constituency branch of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has reportedly suspended Michael Teye Nyaunu, the former Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, and three others from the party.

DAILY GUIDE gathered that the committee’s chairman, Christian Azu, took the decision but had not yet communicated it to them at the time of filing this story.

According to the committee, a letter was written to the constituency executives that the party members should not attend any meeting organised by Teye Nyaunu and the other suspended members in the persons of the former MCE of the area, Isaac Tetteh Agbo; Korletey Samuel, the constituency organiser and Alex Konotey, the vice chair for the constituency.

They are believed to be instigating the branches of the party against the constituency executives on polling agents’ money allegedly squandered by some constituency executives during the 2016 elections, according to a section of party members.

DAILY GUIDE learnt that the suspension followed the decision by the concerned branch executives of the party to lock up the constituency’s office at Nuaso Korlenya on Saturday, February 11, 2016.

Atsu Culture, the spokesperson for the group, told DAILY GUIDE that the action was in response to the failure of the national and the regional executives to act on their request for some constituency executives to be suspended.

He alleged that the executives pocketed part of monies belonging to polling agents and prompters during the last elections, paying them only GH$100 out of the budgeted GH$200.

According to him, even after the party’s national chairman, Kofi Portuphy, had intervened and ordered the sitting MP, Ebenezer Okletey Terlabi, to pay the polling agents within two weeks, the MP still refused to make the payment.
The group intimated that its action was necessitated by certain misconduct of the leaders which led to the party’s poor performance in the December 2016 polls.

By press time, DAILY GUIDE’s attempts to speak to Mr Michael Teye Nyaunu on his alleged suspension had proved futile.
