Former Finance Minister Dr Kwabena Duffuor has stated that no amount of insults will deter him from pursuing his “Ahotor Project.”
According to Dr Duffuor, the ‘Ahotor Project’ aims to empower members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) across the country.
Last week, NDC General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketiah questioned the project’s purpose and accused Dr Duffuor of failing to involve the party leadership.
But Dr Duffuor insists that nothing will stop him from assisting the party.
“I will not let insults or other forms of abuse stop me from pursuing my goals. I’m not much of a talker and I merely wish to contribute to the party’s growth.”
Dr Kwabena Duffour received criticism from Asiedu Nketiah for organizing donations under the Ahotor project.
He stated that the recent donation of equipment to a few constituencies in the Ashanti Region by the former Minister, who aspires to be the NDC’s flagbearer, has left the party feeling misled.
Any activity carried out in the name of the Ahotor project, according to the NDC General Secretary, should not be done for personal gain but rather for the benefit of the NDC party.
On August 29, 2022, he spoke to the media during an interaction.
“We just got word from Kumasi that Dr Duffuor is going to distribute some equipment in some constituencies, and we’re feeling very betrayed.” It is not a bad thing if a former Minister wishes to support the party, but there is a procedure that must be followed. He is not the first person to contribute to this party.”
“We believe we were tricked into accepting the donation.” Dr Duffuor should go through the proper channels if he wants to make a genuine donation to the party.”
The Ahotor project team recently stated that it was still awaiting clarity from the NDC (NDC) leadership on the project’s relaunch.
In June 2022, the project was relaunched at the NDC headquarters in Accra.
Dr Duffuor stated during the launch of the initiative that the Ahotor Project has been designed in such a way that each constituency will receive accessories, logistics, and equipment worth GH30,000 to help them run their administrations smoothly.
