Dr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, a former NDC flagbearer aspirant, was one of the renowned stalwarts who attended the opening of the party’s ‘Ahotor Initiative,’ coordinated by former Finance Minister Kwabena Duffuor.
Former Information Minister Fritz Baffour, who also served as Ablekuma South MP, and Mr Horace Ankrah, a former Ambassador to China under President John Mills, were also present at the launch.
Dr. Duffuor asked the NDC leadership to stop talking and start dedicating resources to the party’s restructuring drive so that it can seize power in the 2024 general elections during the opening of the micro-business initiative in Ashaiman in the Greater Accra Region on Thursday, 7 April 2022.
The former Governor of the Bank of Ghana gave the party’s leadership in the Ashaiman Constituency with 100 plastic chairs, four canopies, and a public speaker system to be rented to the public to generate cash and energise the party’s branch base.
The idea is planned to be repeated in the country’s other 274 constituencies.
The project’s initial phase would see 40 items given to the party’s constituency chairmen.
Other notable attendees included founding member Kofi Aikins and former Eastern Regional Minister Antwi Boasiako Sekyere, in addition to Dr. Spio-Garbrah, Mr. Ankrah, and Mr. Baffour.
Mr Winfield Akuako, a defeated parliamentary candidate for the Klottey Korley Constituency, and Mr Lamptey, the Chairman of the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency, are among the others.
“We’re altering the face of the NDC by empowering the party’s branch executives,” Dr. Duffour stated at the ceremony.
He explained that the Ahotor project aims to provide the party with long-term revenue at the branch level.
