The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress Johnson Asiedu Nketia has submitted the nomination forms of former President John Mahama for the 2020 polls to the Electoral Commission.
Addressing the media ahead of the submission Wednesday, Mr Nketia reiterated his concerns over the voter’s register.
“The laws of the Commission indicated that an old register does not become extinct until a new one is finalised and certified. We have a situation when we are called upon to file nominations where there is a big doubt as to which register will be the base document for the filing of nominations.”
“It is unfortunate that a mature democracy like Ghana’s, we are having to go into elections as if we haven’t tasted democracy before,” he said.
The PNC and PPP presidential candidates also filed their nominations today.
Meanwhile, Mr. Mahama says attacks and lies on his person by his opponents will not stop him winning this year’s election and delivering his vision for the country.
Speaking at the official launch of the party’s manifesto at Sefwi Wiawso in the Western North region, the former President said the NDC is better than the ruling New Patriotic Party in delivering development for all Ghana and called on Ghanaians to vote out the Akufo-Addo led administration.
“All the attacks and lies wont stop us from delivering our vision to Ghanaians,” the NDC presidential candidate said, adding “we are better than them [NPP] and we must be better in everything we do.”
Mr Mahama added that the NDC is determined to everything possible to win the December polls, warning the EC to ensure a free, credible and transparent elections.
