23.03.2023 LISTEN

A coalition of concerned branch executives in the Volta Region has endorsed the candidacy of former Governor of Bank of Ghana Dr Kwabena Duffour as the next National Democratic Congress' Presidential Candidate, describing him as the right person to lead the NDC.

Speaking to Media in Ho, the Volta Regional Grassroot Delegates of NDC noted that the former Finance Minister's candidacy is gaining ground in the region.

They described him as a 'force multiplier' at a critical moment for Ghana's economy.

According to a statement by group Coordinator Komrade Agbe Delanyo, “A true social democrat, Duffour has extensive experience working in the economic sector. Importantly, as a leader with a deep appreciation, he intuitively understands that economic growth can only be sustained if people and resources thrive together, not apart.”

He added that Dr Duffour understands Ghana's economy better and as a former leader of the Bank of Ghana provides him as a force multiplier by setting the correct agenda and catalysing action across governments, the private sector, multilateral development agencies, civil society, and philanthropies to achieve developmental goals of the country.

“He is the right person to lead Ghana at this critical moment we therefore entreat all delegates to vote for Dr Kwabena Duffour massively,” the statement from concerned Branch Executives of diverse backgrounds emphasised.
