These decisions were taken at an ongoing National Executive Council, NEC, meeting of the NDC.

Nii Amasah Namoale as lamented over the ten days allocated for all aspirants to tour all the ten regions to get proposers and seconders to sign on the form, you can’t. That 10 days is too short a time,’’ he told Accra based Asempa FM.

“No matter what prof Alabi will still contest. I will plead with the other flag bearer aspirants including former president Mahama to reject the amount, the fee should come below GH₵100,000,” he said.
