The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called Stephen Atubiga to its Functional Executive Committee (FEC) over comments he made on the alleged properties owned by Communication Director at the Presidency, Eugene Kofi Bentum Arhin.
The NDC disclosed that it has seen a news report that captures its member, Mr Atubiga’s attempt to defended the purported wealth amassed by President Akufo Addo’s Communications Director.
The party in a letter signed by the Deputy General Secretary in Charge of Finance and Administration, Barbara Serwaa Asamoah and copied to the Capitalnewsonline.com stated that Mr. Atubiga’s comments do not reflect the values and beliefs of the NDC.
“I write in respect of a news item captioned “Only Useless Politicians Retire Poor”, published on Ghanaweb on Saturday the 13th of February, 2021, which was attributed to you.
The report indicated that you have allegedly chided Ghanaians criticizing Eugene Arhin of the NPP for amassing wealth in the space of four years. Excerpts from the statements you are alleged to have made include:
It is wise that as an individual working, there is the need to amass wealth so you can give back to your parents and society for contributions made to your upbringing” 2. “It is only a politician who led a wayward life who will retire poor”, the letter indicated.
According to the NDC, FEC finds the above statements unfortunate, “especially when they are not consistent with the very principles on which the NDC is founded.”
“Consequently, you are invited to meet FEC on Wednesday the 24th of February, 2021 at the Party Head Office, Adabralca at 2:30pm, to explain to FEC why disciplinary actions should not be taken against you,” the letter concluded.
