Businessman and Co-Founder of now defunct UT Bank Prince Kofi Amoabeng has endorsed the opposition National Democratic Congress as the only viable option to take over government after 2024 elections.
The rerir military officer said though he voted for the governing New Patriotic Party in previous elections, he has resolved to vote for the NDC in the next election.
According to him, though he has a strong affiliation with the NPP with his sister being an NPP Member of Parliament, the country needs a change.
“I won’t vote for the NPP, I will tell you. I said I won’t vote for NPP. I will vote for NDC. We need a change and the only viable option is NDC”, he responded to a texter during an interview on Ghana Television.
Prince Amoabeng recounted his ordeals after the collapse of his Bank in a banking sector clean up exercise in 2017. Though a section of Ghanaians have accused Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta of masterminding the collapse of UT Bank, the CEO of the defunct Bank argued that government should rather be blamed for the exercise that saw the closure of some Ghanaian owned banks.
He noted that Ghanaians should take a greater portion of the blame because they voted for the government.
