According to Mr Adams, President Mahama’s appointment of Yamoah Ponkoh brought the NDC on its knees on the Ejisu Juabeng municipality, contributing to the party’s defeat in the 2016 election.

Speaking in a media interview, the NDC 2016 Campaign Coordinator insisted appointing Yamoah Ponkoh as an MCE caused more harm to the party than good in Ejisu and the Ashanti Region as a whole.

“He did not deserve to be appointed as MCE, hence his inability to secure the confirmation of the assembly members in Ejisu, even when he was reappointed for the second time. In fact his appointment was part of the “unfortunate appointments” the President made while in power,” Kofi Adams regretted
