    Duffuor’s flagbearship bid is a wild fantasy – Kwakye Ofosu

    An Aide to former President John Mahama, Felix Kwakye Ofosu has ridiculed former Finance Minister, Dr Kwabena Duffuor over his decision to contest in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearership race.

    This follows the picking of nomination forms on Thursday on his behalf by the Ashanti Regional Women’s Organiser, Gloria Huze, who led a delegation to the party headquarters.

    Commenting on the development in an interview on Joy FM’s Top Story on Thursday, Mr Felix Kwakye Ofosu said although the John Mahama campaign team has enormous respect for Dr Duffour, “the truth is that Dr Duffuor flagbearership is such a wild fantasy.”

    For this reason, the former Deputy Information Minister expressed his astonishment that “it is being tabled as a serious opposition” to ex president Mahama.

    Explaining the reason for his statement, Mr. Kwakye Ofosu asserted that Dr Duffuor does not stand the chance of becoming the NDC flagbearer.

    “Not that he is not quality material, he is by every stretch of the imagination, but there is a much better candidate in the shape of former President Mahama who can guarantee the NDC victory in 2024,” he added.

    He went on to say that the general election in 2024 is not one to be trifled with, therefore the need for the party to put their best foot forward, adding that “President Mahama as far as the NDC is concerned, is the best candidate we can present for that election for many reasons.”
