Former National Communication Officer for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and a member of the Dr. Duffour campaign team, Solomon Nkansah is urging MP for Ningo Prampram Sam Nartey George to direct his frustrations at John Mahama but not an accomplished man in the person of Dr. Kwabena Duffour.
Sam Nartey George in a TV broadcast (GH One) questioned the capabilities of Kwabena Duffour as the flagbearer of the NDC when his business interest (EIB Network) is struggling with some staff being owed salaries of more than 17 months.
“…how can we trust you in running the party, EIB, you (referring to the host) hosting me this morning, you are owed months of salary and yet Kwabena Duffour is running around promising Ahotor. He is promising Ahotor which is comfort and relaxation yet you and his staff of you are owed 17 months of salary. How are you feeding, how are you coming to work every day? So, if he cannot pay his own workers but he is promising Ghanaians that he will pay.
The Duffour campaign team has not taken this lightly, suggesting Sam George’s position is untenable as the fact does not support the same.
Solomon Nkansah urged the Ningo Prampram MP to shut up if he is not well-informed on matters
“If we say we will provide resources, Sam George does not understand. He should do his checks well, he can’t say Dr. Duffour has not paid his staff. He must debate on issues, he should direct his frustrations to his candidate John Mahama. He is a frustrated politician and doesn’t know who advised him to go on that tangent”
“It’s a form of diversion they can’t match Dr. Duffour’s campaign, so all they are doing is attacking him. Dr is focused, he has done it before with President Mills and will continue to resource the grassroots and the downtrodden in the party”
The politicking in the NDC is becoming hotter as flagbearer hopefuls crisscross the country to woo delegates for their votes.
Four persons including former President John Dramani Mahama, former Finance Minister, Dr. Kwabena Duffour, former Mayor of Kumasi, Kojo Bonsu and businessman, Ernest Kwaku Krobea picked forms to contest the Presidential primaries of the NDC.
