The Chief of the Northerners at Aboabokese in the Atwima Kwanwoma District of the Ashanti Region, Nana Nsoh Erskene has alleged that the former Governor of Bank Ghana, Mr. Kwabena Duffour has nothing to offer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) if he is given the mandate to lead the party
Speaking to the Opera News Content Writer King Amoah in Kumasi, Nana Erskene observed that the fact that Mr. Duffour is known in the financial sector his chances to lead a big political party like the NDC are non-existence.
The former banker has expressed his interest to contest in the race as the presidential candidate in the NDC to win and lead the party in the 2024 general elections.
But according to the Northerner's chief Mr. Duffour though has the constitutional right to contest for any position in the party.
His current motive to become a presidential candidate of the NDC sounded to be premature.
Because a number of supporters of the NDC and for that matter, many Ghanaians hardly know him.
If Mr Duffour wants a political position in the party he must first come out to introduce and market himself to the party to gain full recognition.
After which he can declare his ambition to lead the party, the chief commented.
Nana Erskene stressed that the ex-banker is allegedly trying to embark on political propaganda which he would regret later.
My dear brother Duffour should go and ask Mr. Erskine about what happened to him.
When after contesting for elections, got to know that he was badly defeated as his own vote and that of her wife and children failed to appear in his favor after the election results were announced.
Nana Nsoh Erskene underscored that in the NDC the party though has popular men and women who can contest and win elections to become the presidential candidates to lead the party in the struggle to win the 2024 general elections.
Yet everyone finds it prudent to throw his or her weight behind former president John Dramani Mahama.
The reasons are that the 2024 general elections would be crucial and needs someone who is more popular, mature, sober, and humble like the former president to lead the party to the dreamland.
At this crucial moment of political struggle the party needs a unifier leader who can stand bold to wrestle power from the ruling NPP government, Nana Erskene told the correspondent.
And made it emphatically clear that it is only the former president John Dramani Mahama who deserves to wear the crown.
Nana Erskene further took the opportunity to suggest to Mr. Duffour to if possible, withdraw his intentions to contest for the elections to become the flagbearer of the NDC.
To lead the party in the 2024 general elections alleging that Duffour cannot win any elections if the entire supporters of the NDC campaign for him only for two years.
This is because his chances of winning elections in the party are slim as he is allegedly unknown in the political scene.
Mr. Kwabena Duffour should alternatively also discard those who have been allegedly giving him the wrong advice and rally behind the former president.
In his quest to bring back the party into power in 2024 for the benefit of all Ghanaians, the chief concluded.
