Stop being petty - Kofi Adams to NDC flagbearer hopefuls
The National Organiser of the NDC Kofi Adams has asked members of the party aiming at vying for the position of flagbearership to stop being petty.
According to him, allegations by some of them that he is organizing the unity walk to campaign for former President John Mahama is not true.
In a TV interview, Kofi Adams said after the Kwesi Botchway committee recommended for a unity walk to unite the grassroots of the party, he sees it as a thing that will help their initial idea of reorganizing the party.
He added that allegation by MP for Nadowli West, Alban Bagbin that the former President is paying for the various unity walks been organized by the party is not true.
Kofi Adams called on all who wants to lead the party in the 2020 general elections to rather stop being petty and contribute to building a formidable front to win the general elections.
The National organizer said unless nominations are open for party members to pick and vie for the position of flagbearership, all hopefuls cannot be treated the same because President Mahama who has not declared whether or not he will run for the flagbearership position is a former head of state and will on any day not be treated like the rest.
According to him, same will be done for Alban Bagbin if John Mahama is not in the scene because Mr Bagbin has been the long-serving MP in the party.
