For Immediate release
Action Movement Welcomes Duffour’s Ghanaian Dream Video For The NDC
The NDC Action Movement has become aware of a Video in circulation in which the former Finance Minister, Dr. Kwabena Duffour is seen canvassing support for the NDC.
The one-minute-twenty-one-seconds video features Dr. Duffuor and six other persons from all walks of life telling Ghanaians about what the NDC means to them.
This masterpiece of a video is calling for increasing political participation and it carries the message of a Ghanaian dream, and that, the Ghanaian dream can only be delivered by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Dr. Duffour actually spoke about the opportunities that were availed to him as a young man adding that he wanted Ghanaian youth to achieve the Ghanaian Dream.
“I was lucky to be allowed to dream of a better life and make it and I want every young person in Ghana to have a chance to achieve the Ghanaian dream”
“A real opportunity at making something of themselves, so that they can help build, run and better this great country of ours. We owe this to our children and indeed we owe it to ourselves too,” Dr Duffour avvered in the video.
The Action Movement welcomes Dr Duffour’s intervention in canvassing support for the NDC. Indeed, this is a welcoming news, so pleasing and soothing.
It is not about Dr. Duffour as an individual but the NDC as a political party. It is about membership drive. It is also about our young people. It is about Ghanaians. It is their future, not the past. It is about reforming the NDC to make it appealing to all and sundry and securing the people and reconciling the nation.
Action Movement is of the view that 2024 is going to be special and a potential turning point in Ghana’s history, that we need to seize the moment, to give every Ghanaian a chance to help redefine Ghana as a place for them and their children to prosper and feel safe. A change is needed now, and the NDC is ready to lead that change, which is why the party leadership needs to open up the nomination process for the NDC flagbearership and make it appealing to the Ghanaian people.
Just like many party faithfuls are already drumming up support for Dr. Duffour to enter the NDC presidential race, the Action Movement demands the entry of the former Finance Minister and any other NDC activist who is interested in making Ghana a better place.
Ghanaians know the NDC have the men to deliver good governance and can do better.
The NDC must form the decision to run the 2024 elections on the basis of united, prosperous and peaceful Ghana. The party must put its best foot forward. We strongly believe that Dr. Duffour is a powerful metaphor of politicians who are ready and willing to oversee this transitioning of the governance systems.
The old and tired political nepotism practiced by Ghana’s political elite, must give way to a more objective, merit-based system.
Dr Duffour is an intelligent and tenacious person. He is self-made, and the epitome of the tried, tested and workaholic. He can relate to anybody from anywhere, be they child or adult, male or female, black or white, educated or uneducated, northerner or southerner, westerner or easterner, mediocre or talented. He can inspire a new generation to new heights of social responsibility with his exemplary biography.
We know the NDC is the only party that can end corruption in Ghana. The only party that can promise and keep it. This is the right time. This is our time.
The Action Movement is very proud of Dr. Kwabena Duffour’s commitment to the NDC. We need more of Dr. Duffours to help propel the NDC to the top.
Long live the NDC
Long live Ghana
James Agbey (Leader of the Action Movement)
