‘I have never been your member’ – Independent candidate challenges NDC sack list

An Independent candidate for Damongo constituency, David Tiki Dange, has rejected the NDC claim that he has been sacked from the party.

According to him, he has never been a member of the NDC.

“I want to state categorically that I have never been a member of the National Democratic Congress, in fact, I have never borne any political party card in my life” a statement signed by David Tiki Dange, an independent parliamentary candidate for Damongo constituency read.

The NDC in a statement on November 3, sacked 18 members for breaching the party’s constitution.

“The following members who sought and obtained nomination from the Electoral Commission to contest the upcoming parliamentary election as independent candidates have forfeited their membership of the party.” The statement signed by NDC General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, read.

The party further barred them from using any party paraphernalia or the name of the flagbearer in all their campaigns

“They must hand over all party property in their possession to their respective constituency secretariats, and they must cease to forthwith in using party paraphernalia and the name of the flagbearer in all their campaigns”

But reacting to it, Tiki Dange said “one would have expected a meticulous inquiry to ascertain the authenticity of thus fact before the compilation of such list”

The independent candidate for Damongo suggested he could take legal action against the party.

“In as much as I respect the NDC as a party, I am sorry I have never had any political activity with any member of the party anywhere at any time”

“I have accordingly notified my lawyers about this anomaly to respond as soon as possible” the statement read.
