Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer aspirant, has promised to revive Ghana’s struggling economy within two years.
If elected as the party’s presidential candidate and eventually retained as the country’s head of state in the 2024 general elections.
Ghana’s economy, according to Dr. Kuffour, is deteriorating and will see a major comeback if he is elected President.
Dr. Kwabena Duffuor made this clear when he chose his forms to officially run for the NDC flagbearership.
He joins a growing list of personalities who have picked forms to run against former President John Mahama for the party’s ticket.
Gloria Huze, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Ashanti Regional Women’s Organiser, picked up nomination forms for the former Bank of Ghana Governors at the Party’s Headquarters in Accra on Thursday morning.
Madam Huze stated that the 2024 presidential elections will require a courageous candidate like Dr. Duffour to lead the NDC in saving the public, especially women, from the current administration.
“I will fill it and strongly contest the NDC’s presidential primary,” Dr. Duffour said after accepting the forms.
Dr. Duffuor served as Minister of Finance under late President John Evans Atta Mills from 2009 until 2013, and then as Minister of Finance under President John Mahama.
Former Bank of Ghana Governor and founder of the defunct uniBank had indicated his intention to run for NDC flagbearer in November 2023.
According to him “The place for the eagle is not the land but the sky.
The eagle will soar again, Ghana will soar again. Our government, if voted for will bring the economy back within two years.
The first year will be a resurrection year and the second year, will be a complete recovery in 2025″.
On Thursday, he informed supporters that he was ready to lead the NDC in the 2024 election to help “rescue the country from crisis” and improve people’s lives.
