Former Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr Kwabena Duffuor, has picked his nomination forms to contest in the flagbearership race of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
On Thursday, February 23, 2023, a team picked up the forms at the party’s headquarters in Accra on behalf of the businessman to enable him to contest in the internal elections.
It comes just a day after the NDC opened nominations for the elections.
The Ashanti Regional Women’s Organiser, Gloria Huze, who led the team to pick the forms, was impressed with the reception by party officials and assured that Dr Duffour would follow all the regulations to submit the documents.
She indicated that the Ashanti Women’s Wing decided to buy the forms for Dr Duffour because of the suffering women within the party are going through at the grassroots level.
According to her, “2024 presidential elections will need a courageous candidate like Dr Duffour to lead the NDC to save the masses, particularly women, from the hands of the current administration.”
So far, three-time presidential candidate John Dramani Mahama, former Kumasi mayor Kojo Bonsu and one Ernest Kwaku Kobeah have picked forms to contest the May 13 polls.
