Kofi Adams’ Suspension Extended
The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the
ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has
extended the suspension imposed on the embattled
former Deputy General Secretary, Mr. Kofi Adams,
by an additional one month.
Mr. Adams was suspended after a leaked tape with a
voice purported to be his was heard saying he will
do everything possible to prevent President John
Mills from securing the mandate of Ghanaians for a
second term in the December 7, general elections.
His reinstatement is pending on the results of
investigations being conducted on him by the
Disciplinary Committee of the NDC.
But before the Disciplinary Committee could
present its report, the FEC has written to Mr.
Adams, informing him of its decision to extend his
suspension for another month. When contacted on
phone, Mr. Kofi Adams told The publisher newspaper
that, though he has not received the letter
personally, he had information that it is in the
Ridge office where he had been operating from
since his suspension.
On the latest decision against him, Mr. Adams said
FEC headed by the General Secretary, Johnson
Asiedu Nketia do not have the power to extend his
suspension. “FEC does not have the mandate to
extend the suspension when they are not the body
that took that decision to suspend me in the first
place,” Mr. Adams said.
