I have not resigned from the NDC- Dr. William Atta Owusu clarifies

A member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) cum business mogul, Dr William Atta Owusu, has denied media reports that he has resigned from the NDC.

However, speaking in an exclusive interview with Pure FM’s Evans Osei-Bonsu, Dr. Atta Owusu, a known party financier of the NDC in the Ashanti region explained that he remains a devoted member of the party.

He urged the public to disregard reports of his resignation, emphasizing that he is yet to receive a formal letter from the party excommunicating him from its regional Communication outfit.

“I am a true NDC member, I contested for Subin Constituency as a Parliamentary Candidate and lost. I have not resigned from the party.

I remain a key member of the party in the region and my vision is to see that President Mahama is declared President of Ghana in 2024.

But I shall respect the party’s leadership and directives if indeed I’ve been asked to stop going on media platforms for now in the party’s name.

But I can say on authority that I’m yet to receive a formal letter communicating to me to that effect.”
