Speaking to Angel FM’s Nana Yaa Brefo prior to the party’s delegates’ congress on Saturday, he said despite being the chairman of the Council of Elders, JJ Rawlings’ passing caused no havoc.
“If you set up the party in such a way that it will run even in your absence, that is real politics. But when you found it solely on you the individual, it is inappropriate.
“We have a council of elders and the founding father was the chairman of the council. The council is still there so nothing has gone awry,” Dr Ahadzie defended.
The comment of the party’s researcher came on the back of the recent contentions between the General Secretary and the Chairman of the NDC who are both contesting the Chairmanship position.
The party elder said although what came out of the friction between the two was to some extent grave, it was meant to score political points only and not to break the organization.
