A member of the Communications team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Stephen Atubiga has officially resigned from the Party citing disloyalty, lack of accountability and probity and lousy leadership among others as his reasons for leaving.
According to him, following careful consultations with other disenchanted members of the Party, “we have collectively decided to split from the NDC to form another Social Democratic Party.”
This, he says, is in “furtherance of the true ideology of the late President Jerry John Rawlings and his principles of probity and accountability which the current NDC party departed from years ago.”
Confirming his decision to quit the NDC to Agya Wusu, the host of Link Agoo AM Show on Friday, May 21, Atubiga stated that the alleged waning of NDC loyal voters in the Northern regions of Ghana results from the leadership of the Party detaching itself from the concerns and sufferings of the ordinary voter.
“Many NDC faithful didn’t vote for the NDC because the leadership of the NDC has lost focus, then we have come in to honor our former leader (Rawlings) with a 3rd party so that hopefully we can bring the principle of the party back and in place.”
The name of his party is National Liberation Congress (NLC) and Stephen Atubiga will be the leader and founder of the party.
