“What is very important to Ghanaians now is how to revive our ailing economy and make the cost of living affordable to the ordinary Ghanaian. We can’t talk about persons who can build and competently manage an economy without mentioning the name of Dr. Duffuor. We all know the successes he attained in office as Finance Minister growing the economy to an appreciable level and reducing inflation to a single digit for a long period of time.

He added: “He’s a new product though, but what he did while in office is evidently clear for all to see.

He’s proven his competence in both private and public life and such a person is who Ghana needs at this crucial period where our economy is on its knees.”
