A former Minister of Finance under Professor John Evans Atta Mills administration, Dr Kwabena Duffuor says he is very confident the opposition National Democratic Congress will win the 2024 presidential election.
Speaking on the Ekossisen on Tuesday, 30 November, 2021, the astute banker opined that irrespective of who become the next presidential candidate of the NDC, the party is assured of sweet but hard fought victory in 2024.
Notwithstanding his confidence in the NDC Dr Duffuor insists all members must come on board and work restlessly towards bettering the strength of the party ahead of the 2024 general elections.
In this regard, Dr Duffuor said he is determined to help built a strong party with a special focus on the grassroot. He bemoaned the plights of the NDC grassroot supporters and the need to empower them economically.
"What is more important to me is to build a strong party, not to become a flag bearer", the astute banker told Osei Bonsu, the host of Ekossisen".
When asked about his relationship with former President John Dramani Mahama, Dr Duffuor said they have regular communication and that there is problem between the two of them.
Ahead of the 2020 general election, Dr Duffuor was highly ticked to partner former President John Dramani Mahama as the flag bearer and running mate of the NDC respectively. However, this did not materialise as the NDC selected Professor Jane Nana Opoku Agyemang as Mr Mahama's running mate.
But when asked if he will be willing to partner John Mahama as the running mate of NDC in 2024, he answered: "we have not reached there yet".
