NDC Youth Organizer disowns ‘godfather’ Duffour; says he’s not in any ‘camp

National Youth Organizer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Yaw Opare Addo has denied reports linking him to the campaign team for Dr Kwabena Duffour’s Presidential bid.

According to him, it’s just a figment of someone’s imagination and there is no iota of truth in those reports.

Opare Addo contended that his position as an executive of the party does not permit him to openly support any candidate hence, such reports and posters are mere fabrications.

To him, he works for the NDC and no any candidate and that should be respected by all.

“The last few days, there have been a lot of publications about our internal processes. I saw a poster of me, somebody sat in his bedroom, took his computer and did a poster and put my picture in there that I am Youth Coordinator for Duffuor’s campaign. I George Opare-Addo, I sit in Dreamz FM today and this on authority that I don’t belong to any campaign team. My campaign team is that of the NDC,” he stated.

He added “I am not permitted per law to go and support any other candidate. We’ve not even opened nominations and to the best of my knowledge nobody in the NDC today has declared his intentions of running for flagbearer. So it is not true that I am part of anybody’s campaign team. It is figment of somebody’s imaginations. I repeat and insist that I am not part of anybody’s campaign team. I work for the NDC and that is why I’m in the region today to work for the party and put it in shape”.

Background

It is becoming clear that former Finance Minister Kwabena Duffour will contest for the NDC’s 2024 flagbearership barring any unforeseen circumstances.

There were posters on social media suggesting that George Opare Addo has been appointed as the Youth Coordinator for the campaign.

There were reports that suggested that he was helping Kwabena Duffour take out John Dramani Mahama who led the party in the 2016 and 2020 election.
