Mr Adams told sit-in-host of Joy FM’s Super Morning Show, Bernard Saibu, Thursday that this among many other interventions by the president culminated into the decision by former President Rawlings to throw his weight behind the candidature of President Mahama.
“President Mahama has had cause to complain that his communicators have not been communicating the way he feels, they must communicate for government and from the presidency and must limit it. Since then I believe that the sharp teething communication [that’s] foul communication has reduced. That is a positive [step]. Everybody believes that his measure has brought some spark and therefore has given the ruling party some higher possibility of, what, winning.”
Mr Adams also asked: “Is Mahama not more visible in terms of a flag-bearer of a party than maybe our late President (Mills) in terms of campaigning? Are you telling me the death of our late president has not brought some sympathy to the governing party?… President Mahama, recently at Odwira had time to apologise to some institutions that he felt some of his party persons were engaging in a manner they should not have engaged. That is a plus.”
Former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings has widely been speculated to lead the NDC splinter party, National Democratic Party, as its flag-bearer. However, with respect to Mr Rawlings‘ latest support for President Mahama, questions have been raised as to whether Mr Rawlings would join the campaign team of the NDC or not.
Though Mr Adams was not forthright because “I don’t have information whether he will or will not”, he said his boss would make a decision when the already instituted campaign team of President Mahama approach him.
Meanwhile, Mr Adams has taken a swipe at a political scientist Dr. Michael Kpessah-Whyte for asserting that Mr Rawlings was being opportunistic with his support for President Mahama.
He questioned Dr Kpessah-Whyte’s analysis and was convinced that the analyst did not listen or understand what Mr Rawlings said.
“President Rawlings doesn’t do anything out of opportunism,” he maintained.
