The Vetting Committee of the National Democratic Congress, has given the green light to Mr. Wonder Victor Kutor, a former Parliamentary Candidate aspirant for the Anlo constituency to contest for the National Executive Committee membership slot.
This was after a petition filed against him was heard by a committee made up of seasoned lawyers of the party.
It was chaired by Lawyer Abraham Amaliba with others including a former Attorney General, Lawyer Betty Mould Iddrisu, Hon. Amb. Sam Pee Yalley, Mr. William Wilson Agbleke, Hon. Hajia Laadi Ayamba and Hon. Elizabeth Ofosu Agyare who is herself a lawyer and the Member of Parliament for Techiman North.
A former President of the Student Representative Council of the Ghana School of Law, Mr. Kutor told Journalists his vetting was largely based on a petition submitted to the Committee on his stewardship.
Prior to declaring his intentions to contest, a petition was made against his candidature in relation to allegations levelled against him whilst in office as SRC President.
However, Mr. Kutor who appeared before the panel on Wednesday November 16, 2022 was given a fair hearing and has since been cleared to contest as NEC Member.
“The Audit report from the Ghana School of law for 2021/2022 Academic year confirms that all sponsorships cash were paid into the Ghana School of Law SRC account and not paid to the President personal account”, he pointed out.
“Page 21 of the audit report also confirms that all the monies were used for SRC related expenditure”, he further added.
Mr. Kutor, who is going into the contest with 18 others, is seeking to be one of the five elected executives members to serve the party.
His vision, he outlined is to strategize for the party in going into 2024 elections which has a great tendency of recapturing power from the inept NPP government because election 2024 is a must win for NDC.
A former deputy Secretary of the NDC for the Anlo constituency Mr. Victor Kutor said, he is battle ready to aid the comeback of NDC to power if given the nod as the National Executive Member.
According to him, his vision and strategies for the party in going into 2024 elections has a great tendency of recapturing power from the inept NPP government because election 2024 is a must win for NDC.
During the last NDC administration, Mr. Kutor worked as a special assistant to the Deputy Minister for Energy & Petroleum, Hon. John Jinapor. He is currently the owner of Kutor Farms and an immigration consultant.
