A Political Science lecturer at the University of Cape Coast, Jonathan Asante Okyere, has said that Dr Kwabena Duffuor's injunction on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) primaries was influenced by some anti-Mahama elements in the party.
The Political Scientist alleged that some persons in Dr Duffuor's campaign team urged him to pursue the injunction route just to get back at former President Mahama.
“I will not mince words. With the likes of Solomon Nkansah, Mettle Nunoo, Yaw Boateng Gyan and Koku Anyidohu, as you know, has been an ardent critic of Mr. Mahama and the chairman himself, and if you have the likes of the names I have mentioned, it is no secret in the media, that these people are counselling the doctor.”
He noted that Dr Kwabena Duffour is a noble and well-respected man within the NDC and as such if he were to be having issues with the album of an upcoming elections, first port of call should have been to call on the party leaders to address whatever issues he has and not proceed to court to place an injunction on the impending elections.
