Lawyer Maurice Ampaw has supported the decision by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for suspending its former Central Regional Chairman Mr. Allotey Jacobs.
The lawyer commenting on the suspension said the suspended party member should have known better when he decided to take on the party.
The party he said is paramount and anyone who wishes to join a party must support the ideologies and beliefs.
To Allotey Jacobs, he said, “if you want to be honest, don’t join a political party. Men of honour and truth should not join political parties”.
Lawyer Ampaw told Kwabena Agyapong on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that politicians are not honest since they do all they can to malign their opponents, attack their integrity and spew lies about them just to win power.
And as an individual, if you feel insecure and uncomfortable to support your party in this direction, you have no business joining a political party.
“Allotey Jacobs should have known better. You cannot belong to a political party and go against their rules. His suspension was justified. If he wants to be honest then he cannot be a politician or join a party,” he added.
The NDC has suspended Mr. Allotey Jacobs.
The party in a statement said Mr Jacobs has been suspended for his “consistent anti-party conduct.”
The party says the decision was taken after a National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting on Wednesday, May 6, 2020.
Meanwhile, Mr. Jacobs says he is not perturbed and will always stand by the truth.
“Have my own independent mind and I will always stand for the truth and if the party dislikes it and for that reason, they are suspending me that’s beautiful.”
