Yaw Boateng Gyan , a member of Dr Kwabena Duffuor’s Ahotɔ project team, has said the national chairman for the opposition National Democratic Congress, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo called off the project launch at the party’s headquarters in Accra.

“This was the last communication regarding the relaunch of the Ahotɔ project with FEC. We are still waiting for FEC official communication regarding the relaunch of Ahotɔ Project.”

“We wish to assure the NDC membership that our resolve to equip the base with the necessary tools for financial independence is still as strong as ever,” the statement said.

Re: Re – Ofosu Ampofo Goes Dirty

Our attention has been drawn to a publication with the above heading purporting to be coming from the general secretary of the National Democratic Congress Johnson Asiedu Nketiah dated June 9 but issued on June 8 2022, relating to the relaunch of the Ahotɔ Project.

We wish to explain as follows:

  1. On Wednesday June 1 2022, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor and I, Yaw Boateng Gyan Former National Organiser of the NDC, met with the NDC Functional Executive Committee (FEC) and presented a draft agreement on the implementation of the Ahotɔ Project for the NDC Grassroots, for the consideration of FEC.
  2. FEC deferred the draft agreement to the two lawyers, Hon. Alex Segbefia and Sammy Gyamfi for their study.
  3. At this same meeting, FEC proposed, and we all agreed to relaunch the Ahotɔ project at the headquarters on Tuesday June 7 at One11 am.
  4. After the agreement to relaunch the Ahotɔ Project on Tuesday June 7, we thanked the members of FEC and left the meeting on Wednesday June 1 2022.
  5. On the evening of Thursday June 2 2022, Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi, the national communications officer presented an edited version of the draft agreement to us for or consideration.
  6. On this same Thursday evening we also presented additional edits to the national communications officer, Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi for their consideration. We did not hear from FEC throughout the weekend, so focused on the preparations for the relaunch on Tuesday June 7, 2022.
  7. In the morning of Monday June 6, 2022, while preparing for the relaunch on Tuesday, Sammy Gyamfi called me and delivered a message from the National Chairman, Hon. Ofosu Ampofo that the relaunch of the Ahoto has been put on hold.
