Despite turbulent situation over the state of the trend of Cedi depreciation have gain effects of the economy which in few months will be a thing of the past the National Organizer of the ruling party, Mr. Yaw Boateng-Gyan has advised members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) not join the crowd complaining about the current economic challenges in the country.

Rather, he has asked them to channel their energies and resources into explaining the matters better to Ghanaians who may not have much insight into the issues on the ground to save the image of the party.

According to him, if party members failed to pass good comments about the government, it would give a lot of people the chance to do same, and added that that was not expected of a true party faithful.

The National Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Yaw Boateng-Gyan, has stated that there was no need for the party to change the winning team as it prepares for the 2016 general election.

He said any attempt to do experimentation could be counterproductive because the next general election would be fiercely contested.

Speaking to the Weekly Observer in Accra last Tuesday, Mr Gyan said, “Unless there are very compelling reasons, I think the experienced ones amongst us from the constituency up to the national levels must be maintained.”

The NDC is currently organising its constituency elections which would be followed by the regional and national election.

However, even before nominations for the national election are opened, some party members who have declared their intentions to contest various positions are campaigning seriously.

One of them is Mr Kofi Adams, the Deputy General Secretary (Administration), who has decided to contest the national organiser position.

Campaign tricks

Mr Gyan questioned the campaign tactics of Mr Adams, saying his use of personal attacks and abusive language would not help him and the cause of the party.

He said for Mr Adams to accuse him as being clueless was most unfortunate.

“I will not want to descend into the gutters with him but I think the records must be set straight.

“I heard Mr Adams on radio saying I was clueless. This is laughable and shows he does not know the workings in the party,” he said.

“As National Organizer, I have always made sure that among other things, logistics reach party executive from the branch to the regional levels,” he said.

He also took serious view about alleged claims by Mr Adams that the NDC risked going into opposition if he (Adams) did not win the national organiser position.

He said the statement was unbecoming of someone holding a national executive position in the party.

Rawlings distortion

Mr. Gyan stated that former President Jerry John Rawlings, should have advised his aide, Mr Adams, to contest the position of General Secretary of the party and not National Organizer.

He said for Flt Lt Rawlings to say that Mr Adams should have been the General Secretary of the party by now, and later turn round to tell delegates to vote for him as organizer smacked of inconsistency.

“I think he should have advised him to go in for the General Secretary and not the National Organizer,” he said.

He said his contribution to the victory of the NDC in 2008 and 2012 was unquestionable and challenged Mr Adams to prove what he contributed towards the two victories rather than trying to run him down.

Mr. Gyan NDC was growing and needed to institute policies that would go a long way to help members of the party.
