Don’t Dare Contest My Position – Kofi Adams Warns Yaw Boateng Gyan
National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, has asked his predecessor, Mr. Yaw Boateng Gyan, not to dare compete against him for his current position.
He says he even doubts whether Yaw Gyan will contest again for an executive position in the party.
Mr. Kofi Adams asserts that with what he has put in place as National Organizer, he wonders if his predecessor or any NDC activist can have the temerity to contest for the position.
Though he was not able to disclose his intentions to seek a re-election as National Organizer, he urged his predecessor to contest for a different position in the party rather than the national organizer position.
Speaking on Okay Fm’s Ade Akye Abia programme, he noted that the party currently is undergoing a restructuring process and with what they have put in place, It Will secure victory for the party in 2020.
“We have given the party a solid foundation to withstand any external attack,” Kofi Adams stated.
However in a sharp rebuttal, Yaw Boateng Gyan disclosed that his mind is made up and will surely contest for the National organizer position.
“Considering my past achievements as national organizer of the party and my contribution to the party’s development, i will contest….The decision to win lies with the delegates,” he added.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has rolled out its guidelines for the election of executive members at the branch, constituency, regional and national level throughout the country.
