A former Finance Minister, Dr Kwabena Duffuor has picked forms to officially run for the flagbearership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
This comes as the party readies to attempt to take over the reigns of power from the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Dr Duffuor joins a growing list of personalities who have picked forms in this regard.
Ahead of the gesture, supporters of the businessman massed up at the NDC Headquarters. They hoisted posters and placards in solidarity with the NDC stalwart.
The form for Dr Duffour was picked up by the Ashanti Regional Women’s Organiser, Gloria Huze who led a delegation to the party headquarters.
According to her, the politician will be the opposition party’s best bet for the 2024 election as he has the masses’ welfare at heart.
Madam Huze said the 2024 presidential elections will need a courageous candidate like Dr Duffour to lead the NDC to save the masses, particularly women, from the hands of the current administration.
He becomes the latest member to pick up his forms after former President John Mahama, businessman Ernest Kwaku Kobeah and Kojo Bonsu, former Mayor of Kumasi.
The deadline for picking nominations is Friday, February 24.
