Kofi Adams: I Believe Many Ghanaians Have Regretted Not Voting For John Mahama


National Organizer for the National Democratic Congress [NDC], Kofi Adams

The National Organizer for the National Democratic Congress [NDC], Kofi Adams believes scores of Ghanaians have deeply regretted for not voting John Dramani Mahama to be retained as president in the recent general polls.

“…I’m happy that having been elected and now having gone through vetting the Minister-designate for Health is telling us that it was politics they were doing then on political platforms. That the use of the word ‘collapse’ was too harsh to describe the state of the National Health Insurance Scheme [NHIS], even though it was bedeviled with some challenges which really the then government was working assiduously to deal with; including improving funding sources and also making sure that the level of liquidity of the NHIS is improved,” Kofi Adams said.

According to him, through the vetting process, Ghanaians who were hoodwinked into believing that “President Mahama was not working for them, are being told the truth by at least some of these nominees who have not been arrogant, who fear God and who understand that they are speaking under oath and not on a political platform. At least they have been very candid and truthful to the people of this country.

Kofi Adams was speaking to Citi News on his views regarding the vetting process of the first batch of ministerial nominees (13) named by the Nana Akufo-Addo administration; especially that of Mr Agyemang Manu, Minister-designate for Health.

The NPP’s Nana Akufo-Addo won last year’s polls, becoming president at the third attempt and cementing the country’s reputation as a standard bearer of democracy in a region that has been blighted by civil wars and coups. Akufo-Addo defeated President John Mahama by 53.8 percent to 44.4 percent.

But the NDC National Organizer is of thestrong view that the NPP lied its way into power and that the many campaign promises were mere sloganeerisms aimed at wooing the electorates for votes.

I feel bad but it has already happened because citizens were not ready to listen to our side of the story like many people said that many people were yearning for a particular change that they didn’t even know. Today they have seen it and I believe that many of them have regretted for not voting for President Mahama and I do pray that we survive this four years…Ghana will stay strong for a solid come back of the NDC to continue the great job that we were doing,” he added.
