- Mr Mensah believes that a biased national organiser is not fit to stay in the post
- Kofi Adams defends himself saying he is not against the other interested members
A former CEO of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Mr Sylvester Mensah says that NDC national organiser Mr Kofi Adams, has lost his legitimacy. Mr Mensah was speaking to Accra-based 3FM.
According to Mr Mensah, the actions of Mr Adams does not warrant him being called the party national organiser. The former NHIS boss believes Mr Adams' inability to hide his support for ex-presient Mahama's intentions for 2020, makes the national organiser biased.
“Well I think Kofi Adams has lost his legitimacy as National Organizer of the party. I think that he has abandoned his job, he has just moved far away from what the demands of the job requires so I don’t recognize him in that capacity anymore, even though he is an elected National Organizer”.
This comes in the wake of Mr Adams' remarks after former President Mahama indicated that he will not disappoint those who call for him to contest. Mr Adams expressed joy at this and said he believed former President Mahama was the NDC's best candidate.
Mr Adams has since defended his comments saying his support for Mr Mahama is not a bias towards others. However, this has not gone down well with Mr Sylvester Mensah.
Mensah is thought to be one of four other big names willing to contest for the nod to lead the NDC in 2020. Prof Joshua Alabi, Alban Bagbin and Ekow Spio-Garbrah are all reportedly interested.
Pollster Ben Ephson has suggested that if John Mahama contests, the best chance of defeating him is for all his opponents to join forces. Ephson believes the former president is the most popular person in the NDC.
However, Mr Mensah believes that although Ephsons's suggestion was plausible, it was too early to think of that.
