Kojo Bonsu, a flagbearer hopeful for the National Democratic Congress, has urged Dr. Kwabena Duffuor to prioritize the party’s interests and drop his legal action against the party’s primaries.
The former Kumasi mayor and flagbearer aspirant believes that Duffuor should engage with the Council of Elders, National Executives, and the Election Directorate to reach a mutually agreeable resolution to his grievances about the election procedures that the party is currently confronting.
On Tuesday, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, one of the three presidential aspirants, filed a court injunction to prevent the party from conducting the election, citing concerns about discrepancies in the party’s electoral roll and other issues.
The Electoral Commission which was supposed to supervise the election washed its hands off the election due to the court case.
In a statement on Friday, the former Kumasi Mayor said the issues raised by Dr. Duffuor can be resolved internally and amicably in unity.
“I urge Dr. Duffour to exercise patience and look at the interest of the party at large as I know he means no malice or trouble but rather expecting the right things to be done for a smooth election which is devoid of any obstacles for all to have a level playing ground.
“I also urge the National Executive to engage and continue to deliberate with stakeholders in order to resolve the concerns and help the election directorate to run a free, fair, and transparent Presidential /Parliamentary primaries.”
Mr. Bonsu also called on Former President John Mahama “to join the call for unity and amicable resolution of the current issues ahead of the Primaries. Long live the NDC, long live Ghana, and may the Almighty bless and grant us a peaceful election now and a resounding victory in 2024.”
