It seems many bigwigs in the NDC fraternity are not excited about the moves by Dr. Duffuor who used the courts to attempt to lay an injunction on the May 13th NDC primaries only to discontinue the legal process barely 24 hours to the elections.
The latest to react to Dr. Duffuor’s legal theatrics is Member of Parliament(MP) for Builsa South Constituency, Dr Clement Apaak.
You can’t help your NPP ally ‘Break The 8’ – Apaak tackles Duffuor
Dr Clement Apaak while reacting the actions of Dr. Duffuor has indicated that Dr. Kwabena Duffuor will be disappointed if he thinks his New Patriotic Party (NPP) ally will ‘break the 8’ due to his theatrics to paint the National Democratic Congress(NDC) as incompetent.
Since announcing the discontinuation of the case against the NDC primaries, Dr Kwabena Dufuor has also pulled out of the election at the 11th hour. His quest to win the NDC as flagbearer-ship slot and lead the party into the 2024 general elections has been suspended indefinitely.
According to Dr Kwabena, pulled out of the flag bearer race because the electioneering processes of the NCC were flawed. Furthermore, attempts by him and his team to make things right by him had proven futile all this while.
He announced his withdrawal from the race hours after he withdrew a court injunction he had placed on the party’s internal elections slated for May 13, 2023.
Dr Clement Apaak in a tweet said the former Finance Minister is being supported by an ally in the NPP who he is working to ensure he helps break the eight.
He said regardless of the drama, Dr Kwabena Duffour will be disappointed by the outcome of the 2024 elections because his dream of helping his NPP ally win the election will continue to be a dream.
“Dr. Duffour’s likely move after withdrawing from the NDC Presidential Primaries, which he would have lost miserably anyway, is to leave NDC and form a party. If he thinks this will help his NPP ally break the 8, he is in for a historic disappointment,” he said.
