Dr. Kwabena Duffour, the former Governor of the Bank of Ghana during the JJ Rawlings administration, has officially announced his ambition to run for President in 2024.
According to him, when given the mandate to lead his political party, the NDC into the 2024 elections, he will choose either Speaker Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin or Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu as his running mate.
“There are two people who are doing very well in politics. Look at Bagbin with 30years in politics and look at this young man, Haruna Iddrisu. Any of them, either Haruna Iddrisu or Bagbin could be my running mate. They are working hard out there. They will compliment me,” he stated.
For some months now, Dr. Duffuor’s name has been making waves as one of the people that will rival ex-President John Dramani Mahama for the flagbearership position of the main opposition party.
He stressed that his race depends on the National Democratic Congress’ primaries.
“I was a Finance Minister so I was in politics but we have not started talking about the NDC primaries yet, when we get there and I’m given the nod, why not”, he said.
The former Finance Minister under Atta Mills’ administration made this known in an interview with TV3’s Roland Walker.
