Dr. Kwabena Duffour withdraws from NDC flagbearership race
Former Finance Minister Dr. Kwabena Duffuor has pulled out of the flagbearership race of the National Democratic Congress. He told journalists on the eve of the Saturday, 13 May 2023 polls that he has been left with no choice than to take that route, as “I cannot contest election which is blatantly fraught with irregularities regardless of all my efforts to draw attention to save it”.
Dr. Duffuor earlier filed an interlocutory injuntion that sought to freeze the conduct of the primaries.
He later withdrew it from court paving the way for the polls to come off as scheduled.
There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.
1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.
2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.
3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.
