Kofi Adams, former National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has declared his intention to contest as the Member of Parliament for Buem constituency in the Volta Region in the next elections on the ticket of NDC after bowing out as a national executive officer of the party.
”If the party opens nominations, you’ll possibly see my name in the list of candidates, God willing.”

Mr Adams declined to seek re-election at the ninth National Delegates Congress, following his ambition to join the crop of lawmakers to be elected to parliament in the 2020 elections and has interest in the seat.

In 2013, he filed his nominations for the same seat together with some twelve others to contest when the seat became vacant following the untimely death of Henry Kamal Ford who was the Member of Parliament for the area but was disqualified by the National Executive Committee of the party for being under suspension for his alleged involvement in a secret recording with Gabby Otchere-Darko, a stalwart of the New Patriotic Party.

Mr Adams was accused of making the then government of late Professor Atta Mills unpopular during the Friends of Nana Konadu Agyemang (FONKA) and the Get Atta Mills Elected (GAME) campaigns for the flagbearership slot of the party.

He will have his face on the parliamentary primary ballot sheet of the NDC in the region alongside other contestants next year however, it’s unclear whether incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Buem, Daniel Kwesi Ashiamah may stand again for the seat. –kasapafmonline.com
