590

Executives of the United Cadres Front of Ghana of the National Democratic Congress have described as diabolical, moves by flagbearer aspirant and former Finance Minister Dr. Kwabena Duffour, to freeze the party’s presidential and parliamentary primaries.

The party is currently unsure if it can proceed with its planned Saturday primaries following the injunction application by Dr. Duffour, for which the Electoral Commission has announced on Wednesday that it is unable to supervise the polls until the legal wrangling is resolved.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the cadres leadership said it ‘learnt with shock the machinations of Dr. Kwabena Duffour and his Campaign Team to derail the forthcoming NDC primaries, especially that of the Flagbearer race by securing a court injunction on it.

“By this diabolical act, we are asking all delegates for the 13th May, 2023 NDC Presidential and Parliamentary Primaries to call off the bluff of Dr. Kwabena Duffour, and vote massively for H.E. John Dramani Mahama to become the flagbearer of the NDC.”

The statement signed by National Chairman of the United Cadres Front, Comrade Cadre Shine Gaveh, and titled Cadres, Arise Against Dr. Kwabena Duffour, entreated the Functional Executive Committee as well as the Election Directorate and Legal Team of the NDC to ensure that the elections come off as scheduled.

Below is the full statement

IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE

CADRES, ARISE AGAINST DR. KWABENA DUFFOUR

Members of the National Executive Committee of the United Cadres Front of Ghana have learnt with shock the machinations of Dr. Kwabena Duffour and his Campaign Team to derail the forthcoming NDC primaries especially that of the Flagbearer race by securing a court injunction on it.

By this diabolical act, we are asking all delegates for the 13th May, 2023 NDC Presidential and Parliamentary Primaries to call off the bluff of Dr. Kwabena Duffour, and vote massively for H.E. John Dramani Mahama to become the flagbearer of the NDC.

The United Cadres Front, by tradition, has often remained neutral as a movement, in internal political contests.

Unfortunately, certain personalities who claim to be cadres and obviously leading members of Dr. Kwabena Duffour’s Campaign Team, have shown gross anti-cadre sentiments, which have the capacity to destroy the very foundations which we all sweated to build.

Reports of their mobilizing cadres to support Dr. Kwabena Duffour’s campaign have often been resisted in the Regions and Constituencies; but reluctantly ignored by them with impunity.

By this statement, therefore, we are calling on all cadres, across the length and breadth of the country, to mobilize and organize, as never before, to whip up enthusiasm in the delegates to vote massively for John Dramani Mahama, come 13th May, 2023.

We however entreat the Functional Executive Committee as well as the Election Directorate and Legal Team of the NDC to, as a matter of urgency, ensure that the elections come off as scheduled.

NO RETREAT! NO SURRENDER!!

ALUTA CONTINUA!!!

Signed
COMRADE CADRE SHINE GAVEH
NATIONAL CHAIRMAN, UCF
