National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer hopeful Dr Kwabena Duffour says he is unfazed by attacks and insults in his desire to help the vulnerable with the Ahotor Project he is spearheading.
He said by his nature, he cannot reply his attackers in same measure but will only continue to help the poor through his donations.
Dr Duffour was speaking to journalists on Wednesday, August 31 in the wake of a warning by NDC General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia on personalising the project.
“If Dr Duffour intends to make this donation to the party a genuine donation, he should be prepared to pass through the proper channels,” Mr Asiedu Nketia told journalists on the sidelines of the 2nd Annual Lawyers Conference of the party.
But Dr Duffour, a former Governor of the Bank of Ghana, said he has been motivated to help the vulnerable through the Ahotor Project to strengthen not only the party but also the country.
“No amount of insults [and] attacks will stop me from what I want to do for you,” he said.
The former Finance Minister said after even serving Ghana for four years, he did not take his ex gratia.
He reminded all that he started business as far back as 1984 and will not capitalise on the Ahotor Project for any pecuniary gains as alleged by some.
“I feel in me that I should help people and I am helping.”
Dr Duffour was said to have visited some constituencies in the Ashanti Region to donate to NDC members without the knowledge of the party’s national executives, who accuse him of personalising the project.
