National Democratic Congress (NDC) General Secretary Johnson Aseidu Nketia was booed by some women at the party’s national womens’ delegates’ congress last Saturday as he delivered his speech on the need to guard against moles in the party.

Although the political strategist did not mention names, some delegates told Upper West Regional correspondent Rafiq Salam that they believe he was casting insinuations at the aspirant for National Organiser Kofi Adams.

Kofi Adams who is currently NDC Deputy General Secretary has been on a collision course with his boss whom he believes is scheming to kick him out of the National Executive Committee.

In October this year and in a response to General Secretary’s call for party loyalty, Kofi Adams accused Aseidu Nketia of flirting with the opposition after he allegedly borrowed money from outspoken New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP Ken Agyepong to pay his light bill.

Wa Senior High Technical School became the battle ground for another round of innuedos and insinuations as the party held its National Womens’ Delegates Congress themed “overcoming emerging challenges in achieving Better Ghana Agenda.”

The Congress to choose National Womens’ Organiser and two deputies was to be decided by 580 delegates.

After Kofi Adams received a standing ovation for his campaign message, Johnson Aseidu Nketia later took to the podium to deliver another loyalty themed speech.

“The worse thing to happen to any political party is to have within the national executive committee, members who can compromise themselves with the opposition because you plan the party in secrecy, you plan your elections agenda in secrecy and if one person decides to be a traitor, all your campaign is down the drain,” a passionate Aseidu Nketia cried out.

But moments after this call, jeers and boos punctuated the rest of his speech.

The party is jeering up to hold elections for national officers who will strategise to keep the party in power in the 2016 general elections. Aseidu Nketia who will be defending his position is thought by many to be unmovable despite a late attempt by a challenger Abdul Ishaq Farrakhan.
