Former National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Yaw Boateng Gyan, has stated that the NDC’s Nationwide Unity Walks spearheaded by Joshua Hamidu Akamba and Kojo Bonsu, were merely for fun.
Yaw Gyan made this comment in an interview with Asempa FM’s Philip Osei Bonsu, after filling his nomination forms to contest as National Organizer of the party.
As the NDC prepare for its National Executives Congress, many stalwarts of the party have filed to contest for various positions.
The most keenly contested position appears to be the National Organizer position, which features the two terms Deputy National Organizer Joshua Hamidu Akamba, Former National Organizer, Yaw Boateng Gyan, Baba Jamal, Madam Anita Desoso and a few others.
The former National Organizer who lost woefully to Kofi Adams at the party’s National Congress in 2014, is seeking a come back. When quizzed about his chances of winning against the two terms Deputy National Organizer Joshua Hamidu Akamba, who is on record to have organized Unity Walks to rejuvenate the party’s base after it’s defeat in 2016, Yaw Gyan indicated that the Unity Walks added no value to the party and “was only a funfair”.
He further stressed, that “Those who took part in the Unity Walks only went to have fun” hence Akamba cannot trumpet it as an achievement to win him the National Organizer position.
