A former Minister of Works and Housing Enoch Teye Mensah has touted his credentials as a founding member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Apart from being a founding member of the main opposition party, he said he established the Tertiary Education Institutions Network (TEIN) of the party and also served as an elected vice chair of the NDC.
“I happen be one of the founders. We started from the beginning long before the revolution. We formed the New Democratic Movement, then Eagle and then the NDC itself was formed. I have been a National Youth Organizer of the party, I am the founder of TEIN, that is the intellectual wing of the party , I attended conferences all over the world including Zimbabwe.
“I was an elected Vice Chairman of the party,” he said on Thursday August 5.
Asked whether he is still happy to be a member of the NDC, he answered on the Good Evening Ghana programme “Yes, except that there is too much indiscipline among the young people. You remember President Rawlings even spoke about the babies with sharp teeth and people are not growing. We need to grow because in politics you will go out there to campaign and people will look at your habit. There is too much indiscipline in the air especially among the young people. They are too much in a hurry.”
Meanwhile, a member of the NDC, Mr Benjamin Essuman has filed a petition against him following an interview he granted in which the former MP for Ningo Prampram rubbished the claims of NDC and its National Communication Officer and described Sammy’s comment on the Saglemei Housing Project as outright falsehoods.
The petitioner cited provisions in article 47, 48 and 49 of the NDC Constitution as legal basis for his action and also grounds upon which ET Mensah must be dragged before the Disciplinary Committee.
He is further demanding that Mr. ET Mensah per his conduct, be sanctioned for what the NDC Constitution describes as ‘anti-party behavior’.
