According to George Opare Addo Pablo, national youth organizer elects for the opposition National Democratic Congress, some party members who criticize Dr. Kwabena Duffour go to him for financial gain.
According to George Opare Addo, he has been accused of having ties to the former Unibank founder, as though having ties to an NDC party official is improper.
He was speaking on Power FM monitored by Ghanatodayonline.com
“Some of the people who insult the man secretly go to him for money. I will mention names today if you allow me. Sometimes I am in his house and they come there. Dr. Duffour is a great man and a key NDC figure who was Finance Minister and Governor of the Bank of Ghana so there’s nothing wrong to be with him. But they insult him and go to him for money”, Pablo stated.
“That small boy at Airport Hills goes to him for money… I have evidence” he added making reference to Sammy Gyamfi.
“My family has known and is associated with the Duffour family for a long time. We have done businesses together and I am not shy to say I go there. Is he not a member of the NDC? Doesn’t the party go to him for funding? I have gone to him for money in 2016 before to prosecute the campaign in Ashanti Region. So what is wrong if I am associated with him?…. But when it comes to the flagbearership, I have said it over and over again that this time is for John Mahama. He is the one we are going with” he clarified.
It’s thought that John Mahama sponsored and backed Yaw Brogya Genfi against George Opare Addo in the recently-concluded elections.
According to rumors, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor’s campaign team for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearership ahead of the 2024 elections would include George Opare Addo Pablo.
Before the 2024 elections, the intelligent and charismatic former finance minister Duffour will compete with former president John Dramani Mahama for the NDC’s flagbeareship position.
A group that was rumored to be the heart of the campaign team supporting Dr. Duffour included Opare Addo and former NDC National Organiser Yaw Boateng Gyan, who was rumored to have endorsed him even before he made his announcement.
However, despite Opare Addo and Dr. Duffour having close links and the latter supposedly spending a lot of time with the elder for strategic meetings and guidance, the National Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress denied any such relationships existed.
