The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has taken the decision to suspend its Northern Regional Vice-Chairman, Alhaji Gbewaa, following a physical altercation with Hajia Shamima Yakubu at the party’s regional secretariat. The incident, stemming from disagreements over party finances, resulted in injuries to the Northern Regional Treasurer’s face.
After deliberations between national and regional executives in Accra, the Deputy General Secretary, Mustapha Gbande, revealed on Joy FM’s Midday News that Alhaji Gbewaa has been suspended for three months. Gbande emphasized that this suspension is provisional, pending a thorough investigation and completion of other necessary processes to address the issues appropriately.
The heated exchange occurred during a crucial stakeholder meeting over the weekend, where tensions escalated to the point of physical confrontation. The NDC’s decision to suspend its Northern Regional Vice-Chairman reflects the party’s commitment to addressing internal conflicts and ensuring a fair and thorough investigation into the incident.
