“Disrespectful” Kofi Adams can’t topple me – Boateng Gyan

The incumbent National Organiser of the ruling National Democratic Congress, Yaw Boateng Gyan, has said he is confident delegates will ditch his contender Kofi Adams for what he said was his “disrespectful” attitude towards the late president John Mills.

Gyan believes, the NDC delegates are conscious of how the utterances of the deputy general secretary affected the party when the late president was in office.

The aide to former president Jerry Rawlings has accused the member of the Black Stars management committee of incompetence and lacking adequate knowledge of his job as a national organiser of the ruling party.

But speaking to Okay FM, Monday, Gyan said he is not bothered by such accusations.

“Kofi Adams keeps telling people I don’t know my job but I wonder if he understands what the role of a national organiser is, I worked to bring the party to power, and he keeps talking. I won’t mind him.

“The NDC delegates are aware of how he insulted our late president and made several dirty remarks about him on radio, so they will judge between us on voting day,” he stated.

The governing NDC would go to congress on 24th October to elect new National Executives.

The congress would run from 24th to 26th October at a yet-to-be decided venue.
