The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has stated with conviction that the NDC will still participate in the upcoming elections and will have a massive victory, no matter what obstacles the Electoral Commission (EC) puts before them.
He said Ghanaians are discerning and have already made their choice as to who they intend to vote for, and the NDC after being called on by the people, cannot ignore their plea and will not let the future generations down.
Mr. Nketia, indicated that the party filed for nominations yesterday only because the Electoral Commission said so, and will not boycott the elections no matter what system the EC puts in place.
Reiterating that the NDC will participate in the December elections and win massively, which will compel the EC to declare them winners; because the good people of Ghana still want the NDC to bring back the development they’re lacking under this government.
He emphasised that this year’s general election is a rescue mission for NDC, and they will give their all to rescue the democracy of the country.
The General Secretary Mr. Asiedu Nketia, made this declaration yesterday at the premises of the Electoral Commission, when the party was there to file the Presidential nominations for the upcoming December elections.
“We want to alert his Excellency that this election is about to be cooked and all the ingredients are there….he knows it
And so we’re calling on Ghanaians that this elections that we’re going into is a rescue mission. We have to get up and rescue the democracy of this country….we have to get up and rescue the public institutions in this country, and make sure that democracy works for all of us Ghanaians”. He stated.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia, who filed for the presidential nomination forms on behalf of Mr. John Dramani Mahama who’s campaigning in the Western North Region, also raised concerns with the timing of the filing of nomination forms.
He was of the view that, it is possible some of the voters that have already endorsed the presidential nomination forms may not find their names in the final register by the time it was ready.
According to the General Secretary, at as Wednesday morning before they got to the EC’s office for the filing, the party kept receiving phone calls from some of its members, informing the national office that their details had changed because the EC had issued them with new voter ID cards with new ID numbers.
He concluded that these were the arguments of the NDC, and they wished the EC had shifted the filing of the forms to a time the final register was ready.
