Strengthening grass roots will make NDC formidable 2024 – Duffuor

A presidential aspirant of the Nation­al Democrat Congress (NDC), Dr Kwabena Duffuor has pledged to strengthen the grass roots of the NDC which will be one of his main priorities when given the nod to lead the party.

He explained that the party needed formidable grassroots to make it strong, focused and formi­dable to capture power from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 general election.

Dr Duffuor made the pledge when he paid a visit to the Greater Accra Regional Executives at the Greater Accra Regional Secretariat of the NDC, in Accra on Tuesday,

to seek their blessing for his tour of the 34 constituencies of the party in the Greater Accra Region.

Accompanied by members of his campaign team, he said in line with his vision to strengthen the grassroots of the NDC, the former Minister of Finance said he would ensure that the party had regional and constituency offices across the country.

“Ghanaians are clamouring for the NDC to come back to power and the party needs a leader who can unite and bring all the people who have sacrificed for the party together to clinch victory in the 2024 elections.

“I will set up a pension fund to support and assist the mem­bers and supporters who have sacrificed for the NDC, especially the aged and the Ahotor project which I initiated to support and assist the grassroots of the party will be strengthened and also the Heroes Fund established by the party to support and assist faithful and sympathisers of the party who have sacrificed for the NDC will be reactivated,” Dr Duffuor revealed.

The former Governor of the Bank of Ghana assured that, when voted as President of Ghana, he would within two years address the macroeconomic challenges facing the country by initiating entrepreneurship pro­grammes to build the financial ca­pacity of members of the party.

The Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the NDC, Nii Ashie Moore, advised the aspirants to embark of a clean campaign devoid of attacks, insults and mudslinging, saying “the NPP will dwell on the mud you throw at your competitors and use them against us but we need peace, unity and harmony going into the 2024 elections to wrest power from the NPP.”

Former Member of Parlia­ment for Ablekuma South and a member of the Dr Duffuor’s Campaign Team, Fritz Baffour, said Dr Duffuor was a staunch member of the NDC who sacrificed so much for the party and also distinguished himself as a former Governor and Finance Minister.
