General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia has chided former Finance and Economic Planning Minister Dr Kwabena Duffour for recently organising a donation exercise in the name of the Ahotor Project.
According to Mr Asiedu Nketia, any donation done in the name of the Project should not be personal but should contribute to the cause of the party.
He said the party feels betrayed by a recent move by the former Governor of the Bank of Ghana to donate some equipment to some constituencies in the Ashanti Region.
“If Dr Duffour intends to make this donation to the party a genuine donation, he should be prepared to pass through the proper channels,” he said.
The NDC General Secretary said they have been written to that an NGO will manage the Ahotor Project, much to the party’s surprise.
Mr Asiedu Nketia says Dr Duffour cannot undertake any activity under the Ahotor Project without the express permission of the NDC.
“He has his equipment. Whatever he is doing with his euqipment, it cannot happen in the name of NDC.”
The Ahotor Project is a brainchild of Dr Duffour, who has declared his intention to lead the NDC in the 2024 elections.
