Former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Koku Anyidoho, has declared his support for Dr. Kwabena Duffuor in the upcoming NDC presidential primaries. He made this announcement during an event in Koforidua, where he also revealed that he would be serving as an agent for Dr. Duffuor during the primaries.

Despite being expelled from the party last year, Koku Anyidoho maintained that he is still a bonafide member of the NDC and would be voting during the primaries. He described his expulsion as mere persecution, insisting that it was not grounded in law and therefore null and void.

Mr. Anyidoho emphasized Dr. Duffuor’s competency in managing the economy, citing his tenure as Finance Minister under the late President John Evans Atta Mills. He also compared Dr. Duffuor’s achievements during that period to those of former President John Dramani Mahama.

Dr. Duffuor himself has expressed concerns over the delayed release of the voters register by the Election Committee of the NDC to the Electoral Commission. He urged for transparency, fairness, and unity in the upcoming primaries.

His campaign team has petitioned the Electoral Commission to release the voters register ahead of the polls, citing inaccessibility to the compiled register as a major concern. Dr. Duffuor called on his supporters to remain calm and peaceful to ensure unity in the NDC after the election.

For the most part, the NDC presidential primaries have been a highly contested affair, with Dr. Duffuor, former President John Mahama, and former Mayor of Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly Kojo Bonsu all vying for the flag-bearer position. With the election just days away, tensions are high, and the outcome remains uncertain.

In summary, the upcoming NDC presidential primaries promise to be an exciting and closely contested affair. The likes of Koku Anyidoho and Dr. Kwabena Duffuor have thrown their weight behind the campaign, while Dr. Duffuor’s team has raised concerns over the delayed release of the voters register. All eyes are on the NDC as they prepare to elect their next flag-bearer.
