Sissala West Constituency Executives of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) have withdrawn the membership status of Mr. Robert Baka Wavei on April 5, 2020.
The party in a statement signed and released by the secretary Mr Guguo Ali has stated that the two time District Chief Executive officer, Mr. Robert B. Wavei had gone against Article 46, Clause II of the party’s constitution, which enjoins a member to defend and conform to decisions of the party at all times.
“Your party membership with ID No. A100070152 has been withdrawn as a result of your consistent involvement in anti-party conduct or activities likely to embarrass the party or bring the party into hatred, ridicule or contempt since 2016,” the letter said.
Explaining what went into the decision on Radford ‘Masie’ Breakfast Show, April 6, 2020, the NDC Sissala West Constituency Secretary, Mr. Gugo Ali said the party’s decision to dismember Mr. Robert B. Wavei from the NDC was its last resort following diplomatic attempts to call him into order.
According to the Constituency Secretary, during 2016 electioneering year Mr. Robert B. Wavei rejected the party’s decisions by refusing to support both the Presidential and Parliamentary candidates but rather threw his weight particularly behind the then opposition parliamentary candidate, Mr. Patrick Alhassan Adama of the NPP in 2016
He further stated that after his actions during the 2016 elections, a group of eminent people in the party from the constituency including late Kuoro Abudu Ghana and other elders have severally paid a courtesy call him to iron out any differences to call him into order.
However, Mr. Guguo Ali said the two time District Chief Executive for the then Sissala district and Sissala West district, Mr. Robert B. Wavei paid a deaf ear to all their efforts and has again, gone ahead of the NPP primaries this year, to throw his weight behind Mr. Salifu Naliwie Baluwie, an NPP Parliamentary hopeful in the Sissala West district.
“What do I mean by referring to a party decision, say as a party we wish to go to Wa; some suggest that we should pass through Bugubelle road and some also suggest that we should pass through Jeffisi road, so if most us, by majority decision then say we should pass through Jeffisi and then the fewer of you who wanted us to pass through the Nabugubelle road, by effect, would have no option again than to join the rest of the majority, but if in an event that you refuse to comply then you are not ready for the party’s decision”, he expressed.
