The National Campaign Co-ordinator Organiser for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) during the just-ended general election, Kofi Adams, has vowed that no executive member of the party will be forced to resign his or her postion following the party’s embarrassing defeat in last week’s general election.
According to Mr Adams, even though the party’s leadership had been in excruciating pain since the declaration of the results of the presidential and parliamentary polls, held on December 7, 2016 none of them would be cowed to exit.
President Mahama and the governing NDC were defeated in last week’s presidential and parliamentary polls by the NPP led by Nana Akufo-Addo.
The NPP trashed the ruling party with about one million votes and also won majority of the parliamentary seats.
Following the defeat, the grassroots and some leading members of the party have blamed the national executives for the defeat and called for heads to roll.
But in an interview yesterday, Mr. Adams who is also the National Organiser of the party has call their bluff saying such demands were unnecessary.
“If the entire national executives resign then who will be running the affairs of the party from now till you conduct internal elections and who will be conducting the elections right from supervising the process from the branch all the way up.
This is why I am saying some of the solutions or suggestions are out of pain of a defeat, but not really based on any sound reasons,” he added.
He stated: “In any case NPP that just won an election, they lost an election also.Peter Mac Manu who is the campaign manager for this election was the chairman when they lost the elections in 2008.
But the NPP did not say that because he was chairman and they lost elections he was not qualified to be a manager. They made him a campaign manager and they have won an election. So what are our people talking about?”
