Re: Ofosu Ampofo Goes Dirty.
Our attention has been drawn to a front page publication in the Informer newspaper of today Wednesday 8th June 2022 under the above headline.
In the said publication, the author sought to create a false impression that the National Chairman of our great Party, Hon. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has resorted to some dirty manoeuvres to undermine the smooth take-off of the Ahotor project being sponsored by Dr. Kwabena Duffour, a former minister of finance during the Mills/Mahama administration of the NDC.
We wish to put on record that since the time the project was proposed, the Functional Executive Committee of NDC has held several meetings with Dr. Duffour and his team to try to streamline an implementation scheme for the project that will satisfy the intentions of the donor without compromising the rules and principles of the Party.
A mutually acceptable agreement was reached at our FEC meeting last week, with Dr. Duffour in attendance pursuant to which we scheduled the presentation of the Ahotor project items to the party for Tuesday, 7th June, 2022.
The event was rescheduled because of certain issues raised subsequent to the final meeting by the donor with aspects of the agreement which required further deliberations and clearance by FEC.
We wish to further put on record that decision making in NDC is done strictly in accordance with the Party’s constitution and not by the dictates of any individual however highly placed he/she may be.
