My defeat at Kumasi congress meant NDC won’t win - Dr Kwabena Adjei
A former National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Dr Kwabena Adjei has blamed the party’s delegates for its disgraceful defeat at the December 7, 2016 polls to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He disclosed that the moment the delegates voted against him, he knew that was the end of the road for party, and there was no way it could win the 2016 general elections.
“When NDC delegates voted me out in Kumasi, they voted the NDC out of government. I wasn’t surprised we lost, am so happy Ghana has an experience president in the person of Nana Addo”, he stated on Starr Chart hosted by Bola Ray.
“Wayo Wayo” as affectionately called also revealed that after his defeat; he was never consulted by the party prior to the campaign and was literally sidelined by the team and not invited to party activities just like some of his colleagues.
“Nobody involved me in the campaign, I involved myself…no I wasn’t invited…I tried to get access to the President and I didn’t get access, when I noticed things were going wrong, I tried and tried and tried but I didn’t get access so I mobilized myself…and did what I could do,” the 74-year-old said Wednesday.
