A former national chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Dr Kwabena Adjei has opened up about some of the happenings in the party he led for nine years.
In a radio interview on Starr FM Wednesday evening, Dr Adjei said Former President John Mahama surrounded himself with “inexperienced” people.
To him one of the principal reasons that led Mahama to lose the 2016 elections was the fact that he surrounded himself with “inexperienced.”
Assessing why the NDC lost the elections, Dr Adjei said Mahama was deceived.
“His [Mahama] handlers misled him. They were inexperienced. I will say this anywhere without fear or favour. We are all to blame,” Dr. Adjei said.
According to him, the younger handlers of Mahama prevented the older ones with “a wealth of experience” from getting closer to the President hence his miserable defeat.
Appearing on Bola Ray’s Wednesday evening Starr Chat programme, Dr. Adjei noted he was sidelined throughout the elections, but he went out on his own way to contribute during the electioneering.
“I’ve a wealth of experience. The young ones failed to tap into our experience… the NDC has run into a ditch and we have to do our best to resurrect that party. Right now who becomes an executive member is out of place,” Dr. Adjei advised party members.
