A founder member of National Democratic Party (NDP), Joseph Bediako says it is the NDC's National Organizer aspirant, Kofi Adams, who has carried out lies on the former First Lady, alleging her intention to rejoin the ruling NDC.
According to Joseph Bediako, speculations in the media that Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings is rejoining the ruling National Democratic Congress was orchestrated by Kofi Adams, adding that it cannot be true as the ruling NDC still dwell in lies and practice corruption.
He stressed that it is surprising that Kofi Adams has suddenly turned around to bash the former First Lady after he came up with the idea to forming the National Democratic Party (NDP) in an attempt to break away from the bad practices and intimidation of the NDC during the 2011 primaries of the party.
Speaking in an interview with host of Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia programme, Joseph Bediako further disclosed that Kofi Adams came up with the NDP’s colours, reiterating that it is unfortunate the Special Aide to the Rawlingses was heard on a radio station insulting Nana Konadu that she is not marketable.
“I always mention Kofi Adams in my speech because he helped and came up with the idea to forming the political party we call NDP…he came out with the party colours, but unfortunately we heard him on Citi FM insulting Nana Konadu that she was not marketable in an attempt to destroy the party. I was disappointed when he pulled out from NDP after helping to form the party; this is why I always mention him in my speech in anger that he is a hypocrite. I want to be emphatic that Kofi Adams will not win the National Organizer position of the NDC despite his backing from the Flagstaff House, until he stops insulting and attacking the personality of Nana Konadu,” he chided.
