Let's win election 2020 for Kwabena Adjei - Mahama charges NDC

Former President John Dramani Mahama has asked the party to work hard and win the 2020 elections to honour their fallen former National Chairman, Dr. Kwabena Adjei.

Eulogizing the former Chairman when he visited his home, he said Dr. Kwabena Adjei has done a lot for the party especially when during his tenure as Chairman he led the party to victory in the 2008 General Elections.

"So it will only be proper for us as a party to work hard to secure victory for the party come 2020," he said.

He also added that the party will stand with the family to give Dr kwabena Adjei a befitting burial.

Former National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Kwabena Adjei died Tuesday morning at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, formerly Ridge hospital.

The politician, who was the Chairman when the NDC won power in 2008, had been battling with a protracted sickness first reported in the media in August 2015.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has declared three days of mourning in honour of its former National Chairman, Dr. Kwabena Adjei.

Dr. Adjei died at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital after a short illness in the early hours of Tuesday, March 12, 2019.

The party in a statement stated that: “during this period all party flags should fly at half-mast and all party activities suspended.”

In view of this development, the Induction ceremony of the Flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, which was scheduled to be held on Wednesday March 13, 2019 has been postponed indefinitely.

Dr. Adjei until his passing was a member of the Council of Elders of the party, a former Member of Parliament for Biakoye Constituency, a former PNDC Deputy Secretary for Volta Region and Former PNDC Deputy Secretary for Industries, Science & Technology.
