    I voted for PPP’s Dzogbenuku in 2020 because NPP collapsed my bank – Kofi Amoabeng

    The former CEO of the defunct UT Bank and UT Holdings, Captain Prince Kofi Amoabeng (rtd), has revealed that he did not vote for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2020 elections.

    Instead, he stated that he voted for the Progressive People’s Party (PPP)’s presidential candidate, Bridget Dzogbenuku.

    Despite being aware that his vote for her might not have a significant impact, Mr. Amoabeng emphasized that he was undeterred by this fact.

    Explaining his decision in an interview with Starr FM on Thursday, January 25, he said the NPP was responsible for the collapse of his bank.

    “I didn’t vote for the NDC or the NPP, if you want to know who I voted for, I voted for Dzogbenuku. I knew the votes wouldn’t count but I voted for her. In 2020 my bank had been taken, so why will I vote for the NPP?” he asked.

    He, however, believes that former President John Mahama will emerge victorious in the upcoming 2024 general election.

    Captain Amoabeng said Ghanaians have experimented with various systems, and it is now time to give the former President another opportunity to address any previous mistakes.

    “It is early yet to decide on 2024 but in my rational self, Ghana has tried a whole lot of things. We have tried military coups, democracies, parliamentary type, presidential type and I think the only thing we haven’t tried is somebody who has been President before.”

    “So I think it’s John Mahama he has been in the position before and therefore when he comes back. He knows the path to tread.

    “He knows who to trust and people not to trust. I think John Mahama will win in 2024.”

    Mr. Amoabeng also stated that the NPP has demonstrated that they are not better in governance of the nation.
