NDC Chair Calls for Decorum

The National Chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Kwabena Adjei, has advised contestants to various executive positions in the party to focus their message on what they could do to raise the status of the already high-fly NDC while fleeing from peddling untruths since that had the tendency to create discontent that may be most difficult to manage in the long run and admonished potential delegates to be weary of contestants who set out to create mischief for personal ends. Dr. Kwabena Adjei, said he had been particularly gutted by allegations by chairmanship hopeful Dr. Asamoah Tutu to the effect that he and others may be attempting to influence potential delegates to the Tamale Congress of the NDC on the 17th of January this year. He asserted that while there is no basis for such an assertion because it is a falsehood, such pronouncements could create unnecessary tension within an institution that needs more team play today than ever. Chairman Kwabena Adjei said while he dissociates himself from any such action anywhere in the country in his name, he would also take the opportunity to appeal to party loyalists seeking nomination to various executive positions, to be decorous and desist from utterances and actions that could jeopardize relationships and the future of the party. Dr. Asamoah Tutu had told Radio Gold in an interview on Wednesday 6th January 2010 that both party General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia and Chairman Kwabena Adjei were going round distributing logistics to potential candidates for favour during the party’s national delegates’ congress in Tamale mid-January this year. Known among the cadre and foot soldiers as “wayoo wayo”, Dr. Kwabena Adjei who is seeking re-election insists that his mission is to continue building the blocks that ensured that the party regained power from the New Patriotic Party in the 2008 general elections and would not deviate from the tried and tested tenets that the NDC believes in and ensure equity among all facets of the populace. He therefore appealed to Dr. Asamoah Tutu and others who desire to use unconventional means like character assassination to achieve their goals to be a bit more candid with facts in order to protect their own image and that of other well meaning persons within and outside the NDC.
