The 2016 flagbearer of PPP, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom says he holds the Chairperson of the EC liable for his poor performance in the election after he polled 106,092 votes representing 0.99% of the total votes cast.
In the heat of the 2016 elections, Dr Nduom had to go to courts to get his name on the ballot paper after he was disqualified by the Electoral Commission.
“To [EC boss] Charlotte Osei and others at the Electoral Commission, I say we will never forget your failed attempt to take away our freedom and our right to participate in the 2016 election.
“Yes you succeeded in sabotaging our campaign but in the end, we still stand tall. Never again should you dare to circumvent the laws that put you in office,” he cautioned.
Dr Nduom was addressing delegates at the party’s 4th National Convention Saturday in the Upper East regional capital, Bolgatanga.
The business mogul who founded the PPP was the party’s presidential candidate in 2012 as well. He has made three attempts at the presidency: his first was in 2008 on the ticket of the Convention People’s Party, which he later broke away from.
In his speech, Dr Nduom gave a strong signal that he may not put himself up for president in the 2020 elections.
“I am now part of the older generation. My task now is to encourage, support and educate our young progressives to come to the front line of our party. The PPP is not Nduom’s property. It is our party. Now it is there for you the young people to make it great and successful,” he hinted his retirement from frontline politics.”
He, however, vowed to offer ideas and support positive policies that will improve the lives of Ghanaians.
