The Greater Accra Regional Chairperson of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joseph Ade Coker, has stated that no aggrieved member of the party in the Greater Accra Region will contest in the 2020 elections as an independent candidate under his watch.
Mr. Ade Coker, in an interview on Citi TV‘s Face to Face program, disclosed that one of his greatest achievements as Chairperson of the NDC is that he has ensured peace in the party under his watch.
“You see the seeming peace in Greater Accra, we have had a lot of altercations in the past,” Mr. Ade Coker responded when questioned on his legacy for the party.
When questioned on some members of his party members breaking out to contest as independent candidates in the Greater Accra Region, Mr. Ade Coker who has been the Greater Accra Chairman of the NDC for 12 years explained that such information hadn’t come to his notice.
He, however, opined that some individuals were scheming to create disaffection for the party in the region.
“It is never true. It has not come to my notice, I have heard snippets of stories but it hasn’t come to my notice. I can assure you.”
“In politics, we know the manoeuvres going on. Somebody who feels he cannot win the seat and trying to split our front is trying to stir up this kind of behaviour,” he added.
