Former Vice Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies Accra, (UPSA) and a Flag bearer aspirant of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Professor Joshua Alabi has stated that, he is under threat by the party's National Organiser, Kofi Adams.

He stated on Accra based radio station Class FM earlier today that, Kofi Adams is playing a double standard as he is inciting some supporters of the party who are chasing him with cutlasses among other weapons.

Professor Alabi further added that, Kofi Adams had declared that Former President John Mahama will be running for the flag bearership position.

“Kofi Adams came out openly to tell the world that former President Mahama should lead the party. What was he [Mr Adams] doing?" he said.

He also said that, Kofi Adams has accused him and others, saying they were not focused on the unity of the party but rather fighting for their personal ambitions.

He said, “Kofi Adams met me in one of the constituencies in Krowor, [it was] reorganisation. That day I didn’t speak, I financed the whole programme there, yes, and he came and he got the opportunity to talk but I didn’t talk, I didn’t campaign, he met me there. We went round… to listen to the problems of the constituency and see how best we could bring the warring factions together… While he was campaigning for somebody, he has asked people in other constituencies to take cutlasses and chase us out when we come in.

This is the party that we have; these are the executives that we have. If we want the party to progress the way we want it to progress let’s do things properly”.
