Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzrah, NDC Member of Parliament for Ho West has slammed his own party for deserting its late National Chairman Dr. Kwabena Adjei, in the latter part of his life.
According to him, the NDC totally abandoned Dr. Kwabena Adjei especially after the party lost power in 2016, leaving him to live a life of solitude.
Dr. Kwabena Adjei who also served as Majority Leader in Parliament passed on at age 76 Tuesday at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital (Ridge) after battling a protracted illness.
In the past few years, he has taken a back seat in political activities and has not been seen in public.
Speaking to Starr News Parliamentary Correspondent, Ibrahim Alhassan, Hon. Kwasi Bedzra who’s also the Chairman of the NDC Volta Regional caucus stated that the party did not treat Dr. Kwabena Adjei right.
“Once you are in politics immediately you decide to step aside in political circle, your circle of friends also change because you don’t seem to get the support that you used to get when you were in political office. Sometimes you go to him and he’s alone at home, Kwabena Adjei is not all that old, somebody who has lectured in the University for all this while should not have been left alone either by our party or the NDC government and all his friends.”
He added: “When we were in power he was the Chairman of the Board of GETFund so he was active, it was when we lost power that he was left alone. Those of us who were close to him were the only ones who visited him. That also tells us about the politicking we do in this country, the winner takes all.”
