Kofi Adams to contest NDC national organiser position

A Deputy General Secretary in charge of Administration of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, has confirmed to citifmonline.com that he will contest the position of the national organiser of the party.

“The party will soon open nominations at the national level and when that happens, I will pick the forms and the position I will be contesting for will be that of the national organiser,” he told citifmonline.com in an interview.

The NDC will hold its national delegates congress from October 24 to 26 to elect national delegates for the party.

Mr. Adams who is also the spokesperson of former president of Ghana and founder of the NDC, Jerry John Rawlings, was suspended in March 2012 both as an executive and a member of the NDC.

This was after a secret tape emerged on which he was allegedly heard plotting with a leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko to ensure the NDC lost the 2012 elections.


He was however reinstated by the National Executive Committee of the party in 2013 as a full member of the NDC.

According to Mr. Adams, it is normal with his political career to be where his services are needed most.

“I believe that at this hour the party needs a younger person that understands the party in and out, that also understands governance in and out and is able to combine these two effectively to organise the party that is in power,” he said.

Mr. Adams will be challenging the current National Organiser of the party, Yaw Boateng Gyan for the slot.
