I Have Rawlings’ Support — Kofi Adams

Kofi Adams Dep. Gen. Sec. NDC (5)AN aspirant for the national  organiser position of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, has disclosed that he has the full backing of the party’s founder, Jerry John Rawlings.

He noted that the decision by Flt.-Lt. Rawlings to support him was based on his competence rather than being a spokesperson for the latter.

“The former President will better tell, he is someone who will say good things about you, if he knows you are competence and have the qualities for a job,” Mr. Adams disclosed in an interview on Tuesday.

According to the incumbent deputy general secretary, his decision to vie for the national oganiser post was bore out of the fact that he has the needed experience and his love for the NDC.

“I know the NDC better and understand its working, because I have held various positions from the grassroots before joining the hierarchy”.

Mr. Adams explained that he is a former organiser for Tertiary Education Institutions Network (TEIN) of the NDC, a constituency organiser, constituency secretary, Central Regional organiser, deputy national youth organiser and deputy general secretary.

He therefore, stated that his duty as a national organiser would be to mobilize more members for the party.

According to him, he would not only depend on youth and women wings of the party but would also galvanise the numerous groups that emerge during electioneering periods.

This, he said was needed because such groups have not be fully utilised after elections were over.

He maintained his analysis showed there were still grey areas in the organizational set up of the NDC.

“We need to coordinate the youth, women, Members of Parliament and various groups to form a solid rock party,” he said.

Adding that, organization is not only about winning elections but also organising people for the benefit of the NDC.

“So the party needs a bold, decisive and selfless person to orgainse people”.“And organisation needs a field man to mobilize membership for the party at all times, so as an organizer, Kofi Adams will always be on the field”.

According to him, the biggest threat to the NDC and its administration was about organisation and the change of tactics during the 2016 general elections and beyond.
