The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has registered the party’s displeasure with the manner former Minister of Finance, Kwabena Duffuor goes about donating items to the grassroots of the party via his Ahotor project.
The NDC chief scribe in an interview described the mode of donation of donation as problematic, saying it flouts the party’s rules and regulations.
To him, nobody donates to the party and still manages the gifts or determine how they should be used.
“The party’s rules say once you donate, you have no hand in the management of the donation,” he added.

“This is not the first time the party has received such donations; the late President John Evans Atta Mills donated cars and former President John Dramani Mahama made some donations to the party. All these items were handed over to the Functional National Executives of the party to be subsequently distributed to the various constituencies.”
He said the party is aware an NGO has been set up by the former Finance Minister to manage the proceeds that accrue from the use of the donation from the Ahotor Project.
This, he explained, is in contravention of the party’s rules and regulations on receiving donations from well-meaning personalities in the country.
