NDC’s Flagbearership Is For All, Not One Person – Yaw Bo …
Former National Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Wofa Yaw Boateng Gyan says the party’s constitution is not against a contest for the party’s flagbearership.
He believes anyone against a contest for the party’s flagbearership is an obstacle to democracy.
Although the party has not opened up nominations for the party’s flagbearership, two names have popped up. It is rumoured former Minister of Finance and Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Kwabena Duffour, and former President Mahama will contest to lead the party at the 2024 elections.
Wofa Yaw Boateng Gyan, a close friend of Dr. Kwabena Duffuor has however shared that his friend has not informed him of any plans to lead the party in election 2024.
According to him, even if Dr. Duffuor wants to lead the party, there is nothing wrong with such an aspiration. “It is not wrong for a contest to be encouraged in the party. Politics is democracy and there is nothing wrong if my friend wants to run for the presidency.”
The politician noted that he will throw his full weight behind Dr. Duffour should he run for the party’s flagbearership. “If he contests and wins, the entire NDC should come to support him and if Mahama also wins, the entire party and Dr. Duffour himself will support Mahama.”
