Deputy General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) Kofi Adams has openly wondered why his boss, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, was not brave enough to mention on the campaign platform of Dr Kwabena Adjei the mole in NDC that leaks information to the party’s opponent.
General Mosquito as he is known in political circles in his endorsement of Dr. Kwabena Adjei who also seeks to retain his National Chairman seat threatened to relinquish his post if party delegates vote for executives who are not loyal to the party.
“Let me tell you, the best gauge of a person’s conduct in the future is his conduct in the past. That is why it is important to review the backgrounds of the various candidates and to find out how loyal they have been to the party and that will tell you how loyal they will continue to be with the party moving forward….. Are you dealing with people who when they lose elections they begin singing with the opposition; dining with the opposition. Are you going to elect leaders who have no problem leaking insider party information to the opposition,” the former legislator warned a section of the party delegates”.
“There is a whole world of difference between operating from party office and operating from Peace FM. So if you are elected to do your work come to the office and do your work and you’ll have time to respond to radio interviews… and if you go and elect leaders who will go to radio stations and when you want to organize meetings they are not available then I’m sorry you can’t win elections. So don’t let us judge people by media appearances”, he asserted.
Meanwhile, many pro-NDC newspapers and some political pundits have attributed the accusation of Johnson Asiedu Nketiah to his Deputy General Secretary, Kofi Adams as the mole in NDC that leaks information to NDP, a party born out from the NDC by Mrs Rawlings as he [Adams] is a spokesperson of the Rawlings's and a perceived founding member of NDP.
But responding to the speculation on Okay Fm’s Ade Akye Abia Morning Show, the Aspiring National Organizer said if indeed Asiedu Nketia was referring to him, then he behaved cowardly for not being able to publicly say so.
“If that statement was meant for me, then he should have boldly come out as a man and mention my name so that I can also discuss the issue but since he couldn’t mention my name, I will ignore what he said. I am not sure what he described affects me”.
“Party’s work is not done in secrecy and the media is part of party work and so if you go for a meeting and you don’t discuss the issue at the meeting with your party faithfuls in the media, how will they hear the message? I will continue to talk in the media and proceed to the field as well because it is a very important part of party’s organizational work. I don’t think such words should be tolerated in the party….I think we should leave the decision for the delegates to make in the election and to decide who should win what in the party”, he chided.
