Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, a former minister of finance, has chosen to formally compete for the position of National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer.
This occurs as the party prepares to make an effort to unseat the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Dr. Duffuor has chosen forms in this respect, joining an increasing roster of celebrities.
Supporters of the industrialist gathered in large numbers at the NDC Headquarters prior to the move.
They raised banners and signs in support of the NDC veteran.
Gloria Huze, the Ashanti Regional Women’s Organiser, took the form for Dr. Duffour and delivered it to the party’s offices with a group.
She claims that because he cares about the wellbeing of the people, the lawmaker will be the opposition party’s best choice for the 2024 election.
According to Madam Huze, the NDC will need a brave candidate like Dr. Duffour to lead it in the 2024 presidential elections if it is to protect the populace, especially women, from the current government.
After former president John Mahama, industrialist Ernest Kwaku Kobeah, and Kojo Bonsu, a former mayor of Kumasi, he is the most recent member to take up his forms.
The selection of candidates must be completed by Friday, February 24.
The two-day event would serve as a prelude to the procedures for the party’s internal elections, which will pick the NDC’s presidential and legislative candidates on May 13, 2023, to run as the party’s candidates in the general election of 2024.
The cost of the candidacy papers for prospective parliamentary candidates is GH5,000, while those for prospective presidential candidates must be obtained straight from the NDC’s General Secretary’s office.
