A spokesperson of former President J.J Rawlings, Mr. Kofi Adams, has expressed disappointment at the National Democratic Congress? (NDC) position not to query its National Organiser, Mr. Boateng Gyan, on his comments on the infamous tape recording. 

Mr. Gyan was caught on tape promising to help party foot soldiers to infiltrate the country?s security agencies to help the party?s agenda in the upcoming elections.

Mr. Adams said ?this shows the kind of leadership that does not understand the current situation the party finds itself in.?

According to him, the responses from the party?s leadership are very unacceptable. ?A matter of this nature that is of major concern to all Ghanaians including some very prominent persons like the national security coordinator, the chairman of the Peace Council and a non-partisan personality like Mr. Emmanuel Bombande, you have a party that is in power have its leadership not seeing anything wrong with.? 

Speaking on Citi Prime News on Friday, Mr. Adams asked the party to come out and ?reassure the people that they never had any such plan; they never sent the National Organizer and that they will support an investigative process into the matter instead of blaming the opposition, since this will only add up to the tension.? 

He said: ?The President has come out in clear terms to pledge his commitment and supervision of a free and fair national election, so for the party executives to act in direct contradiction to the President?s comments is unfortunate. It doesn?t help the President who doubles as the flagbearer of the party?

?Like the founder said, it is important some level of integrity is restored, people didn?t understand him, this is an example. We shouldn?t have allowed for civil society groups to express the kind of worry they are expressing before we speak on it as a party,? Mr. Adams said.
