- Mr. Kofi Adams says the NPP flagbearer is incapable of pulling crowds on his own
- This assertion comes after Nana Addo declares he will be in Kwahu to help clean the municipality
The National Organizer of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams has disclosed that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo is in capable of pulling crowds on his own wherever he goes.
He added that Mr. Akuffo Addo rather that pulling his own crowd resorts to capitalize already pack crowds and uses them as his supporters at a particular campaign. Mr. Adam’s swipe at the flag bearer after news went viral that Nana Akufo-Addo is to partake in a clean-up exercise in Kwahu during this year's Easter.
Speaking on Okay Fm’s Morning Show, Kofi Adams said Nana Akufo-Addo strategy to use already crowded Ghanaians at a particular place because he cannot pull numbers wherever he goes and then campaign with few of his supporters amidst the crowd to presume to the unsuspecting Ghanaians that all have gathered in his name is an example of a bad leadership.
According to him, Nana Akufo-Addo is taking undue advantage of the Kwahu Easter Festival to stage the clean-up exercise in order to campaign; stressing the campaign strategy is weak. He added that though it might be a great strategy on the part of the NPP flagbearer it is not good enough.
He added for instance that “if it is a church service, then he will go there and with the few of his supporters cheering up among the congregation, then they claim they are all supporters of Akufo-Addo...everybody knows that a lot of people go to Kwahu during Easter Festival and so his people will mix with the crowd and then claim they all support Nana Addo”, he asserted.
Mr. Adams questioned why the NPP cannot mobilise numbers to do any programme but to depend on an occasion such as Easter festival to draw their programmes. He also quizzed whether the move by Nana Akuffo Addo would be a yearly move or just an election gimmick.
