The National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, has said the NDC will win the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections with the calibre of persons elected as National Youth and Women’s Organisers.
A former Deputy Minister of Food and Agriculture, Dr Hannah Bissiw, was elected as the National Women’s Organiser over the weekend.
Dr Bissiw won with 446 votes to depose the incumbent, Hajia Zaynab Mahama, who had 252 votes. The other contenders, Hajia Tawa Zakari and Margaret Chiravira, managed to get 16 and 11 votes, respectively.
Two other persons who were elected as Deputy Women’s Organisers were Maame Efua Sekyi Addo, 271 votes; and Abigail Elorm, 249 votes.
The voting, which was held at the Pentecost Convention Centre at Gomoa Fetteh in the Central Region, also saw the election of former Municipal Chief Executive of Akuapem North, George Opare Addo, as the National Youth Organiser of the NDC.
Mr. Opare Addo defeated two other contenders, Yaw Brogya Gyemfi and Wonder Madilo with 523 votes, as against their 396 and 74 votes, respectively.
Edem Agbana, 396 votes; and Ruth Dela Sedoh, 341 votes, were also elected Deputy National Youth Organisers.
Speaking on Ghana Yensom on Accra100.5FM on Monday, 29 October with host Kwabena Prah Jnr. (The Don), Mr Adams said: “I have already said that all the aspirants who contested have the ability to help the NDC snatch power from the NPP.
“The difference between Opare Addo and Nana B of the NPP is clear. Opare Ansah’s clout is way above Nana B and, so, with these persons, victory is assured for the NDC.”
Reacting to Mr Adams’ comments on the same show, Nana Obiri Boahen, Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), said: “Kofi Adams is still playing the kindergarten politics that took the NDC into opposition.
“He should grow up in politics and realise that the dynamics have changed.”
