Rev. Nana Ntow Resigns From NDC

A leading member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Sunyani, the Brong Ahafo Regional capital, Rev. Nana Adjei Ntow, has announced his resignation from the party with immediate effect, citing his reason as persistent hatred from the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the area, Mr Kwasi Oppong Ababio.

He noted, “the hatred towards me by the MCE was also fuelled by some senior members of the NDC who are the foundation of the NDC party in the Brong Ahafo Region, so why should I be part of a family of enemies?”

Rev. Nana Ntow, who lost the NDC party’s parliamentary primaries in the Sunyani West Constituency three consecutive times, did not mention the party he would join. He declared, “Henceforth, I am no longer a member of the NDC so my vote shall no longer go to the NDC party. I shall hand over my membership card to my constituency executive today.”

Rev. Ntow accused Mr Ababio of instructing thugs to demolish a renovated building belonging to him (the building has been in existence for over 100 years) with the claim that he had repaired an old building without permit, when indeed other people had erected more that 16 illegal structures on his land, which the MCE had disregarded.


He made known his decision in a signed statement which the Daily Graphic in Sunyani chanced upon. He indicated that he had been a member of the NDC for several years, dating back to the then Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC) era and later the Provisional Defence Council (PNDC) to NDC1 and NDC 2.

“But now I am left with no other choice than to completely and totally resign from the National Democratic Party as a result of the hatred directed towards me by the MCE in Sunyani, Hon. Kwasi Oppong Ababio,” he stressed.

He further declared, “I hereby resign from the NDC party forthwith and advise all my supporters, admirers and sympathisers not to vote for the NDC in the December 2012 general election. Henceforth, I am no longer part of or a member of the party.”
