The lawyer, who represented the Rastafarian students in court against Achimota School, George Tetteh Wayoe, has announced his resignation from the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to the lawyer, who now identifies himself as Wayoe Ghanamannti, the current dispensation of the NDC does not reflect the foundations it will build.
Mr Wayo revealed this in a lengthy statement in which he recounted his service and sacrifices for the party as someone who joined in 1992.
He explained that the real social democratic discourse he hoped to see for the rapid development of the nation cannot be realised by the current style of the NDC.
“As a true and brazen Social Democrat, I must resign and align myself with a political Party I strongly believe can deliver on this social democratic ideology in a more ‘practical manner’ for the rapid development of Ghana for her future generations,” parts of his statement read.
Though it is not clear which party Mr Wayoe is switching to, he revealed in his statement there have been several attempts by the party for him to join the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
This he said follows a meeting with President Akufo-Addo prior to the 2012 election organised by Lands and Natural Resource Minister, Abu Jinapor, who was a colleague at the Law school.
