Prior to the presidential and parliamentary primaries set on May 13, 2023, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, a flagbearer candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has voiced concerns about irregularities in the party’s voter register.

To ensure a fair and accurate process, Dr. Duffuor has urged the NDC National Executive to postpone the polls. Kojo Bonsu, a former chief executive of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly, and John Dramani Mahama, a former president, are Dr. Duffuor’s opponents in the primary.

The Duffuor campaign team wrote to the NDC General Secretary to draw attention to the erroneous and incomplete delegate list and to ask for time to correct it in order to ensure a fair election.

The letter states, “We are unable to countenance the high potential of the incomplete and inaccurate Voters register to deliberately cause an irreparable damage to the bright chances of Candidate Dr. Kwabena Duffuor.”

Considering the findings, Team Duffuor is demanding the following;

  1. The May 13th presidential primaries will be postponed.
  2. A gathering of stakeholders to create a workable plan that would ensure the accuracy of the voters register.
  3. To ensure free and fair elections, update the voter list in a timely manner.
  4. To preserve the NDC’s reputation so that, if necessary, the party will have a credible voice to comment on issues related to the national elections.
