Former Finance Minister Dr Kwabena Duffour has submitted his nomination form to enable him to run as flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

This comes as the party readies to attempt to take over the reins of power from the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Mobbed by supporters, Dr Duffour went to the party headquarters in Accra to hand the documents over.

“The battle over political power will only be won if the grassroots is strengthened adequately,” was his message.

“The grassroot, the foundation of our party should be resourced, should be made stronger than it is now so that they can fight the elephant to go into the bush,” he said.

The forms were received by NDC General Secretary Fifi Kwetey in the company of some party executives.

The NDC officially will close nominations for both Presidential and parliamentary contests today
