NDC disappointed Kwabena Adjei – Rawlings
- 19 Mar 2019 --
Former President Jerry John Rawlings, has paid tribute to former party chairman, Dr. Kwabena Adjei, describing him as a very strong and passionate man who lived his conviction.
The founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), said he had a great deal of respect for Dr. Adjei because he stood for his beliefs and was not a materialist.
Describing the late Adjei as a fighter during a call on his family at his Agboba residence in the outskirts of Accra on Monday, former President Rawlings said the deceased was however very sad and disappointed about a lot of things.
The former President urged the family to stay strong and united during this difficult period and expressed the hope that his children will carry some of his fighting spirit.
An associate of the former President and good friend of Dr. Adjei, Dr. Anthony Dzegede, who knew Dr. Adjei from his Nigeria days said as a thinker and a philosopher, it was only natural that Dr. Adjei became a politician.
The late Dr. Adjei served as party chairman from 2005 to 2014. Prior to that he had a rich political history, serving in several capacities under the PNDC and NDC governments.
