Stan Dogbe, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, and the Battle for NDC Flagbearer

Political communication and branding can be a tricky business in Ghanaian politics, and no one knows this better than Stan Dogbe. As a seasoned communications expert, Stan has been the eyes and ears of former President John Dramani Mahama, a position that has earned him both accolades and condemnation.

However, the recent controversy surrounding Dr. Kwabena Duffuor’s bid for the NDC flagbearer position has highlighted the dark side of Ghanaian politics. Dr. Duffuor’s opponents have been using his age as a weapon against him, but Stan Dogbe took it a step further by invoking biblical scripture.

Unfortunately, Stan’s analogy was flawed. While he likened John Mahama to Joshua and Atta Mills to Moses, he failed to acknowledge that John Mahama has already led Ghana for four years and lost two elections. If anything, his analogy suggests that God was disappointed with John Mahama’s leadership and gave Ghana back to an “old man” in Akufo-Addo.

For the most part, the age of a presidential candidate should not be a determining factor in their fitness for office. Dr. Duffuor’s opponents should focus on his credentials and policies, rather than resorting to cyberbullying and character assassination.

Dr. Duffuor is an astute economist with a vision for a united Ghana that transcends tribal and religious divides. He has a track record of delivering progress and development, and he is physically fit to lead the NDC in 2024.

Stan Dogbe and other political communicators should strive to elevate the discourse in Ghanaian politics, rather than resorting to cheap shots and misinformation. The battle for the NDC flagbearer position should be fought on the basis of ideas and vision, not on the basis of age or personal attacks.

For the most part, Ghanaians want a leader who can create jobs, improve education, and bring progress to the country. The NDC should present a united front behind a candidate who can deliver on these promises, regardless of their age or political affiliations.

In the end, the choice is up to the delegates who will select the NDC flagbearer. Let us hope that they make their decision based on the best interests of the country, rather than personal biases or petty politics.
