The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has denied the man seeking to challenge President Mahama in the upcoming primaries, access to the party’s presidential nomination forms.
George Boateng stormed the party’s headquarters on Tuesday to pick fresh nomination forms after the one he picked about two weeks ago was declared a draft copy by the general secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia.
The 45-year-old youth organizer of the Oyarifa branch of the NDC had to leave empty-handed as Mr Asiedu Nketiah was locked up in a meeting and could only send an emissary to take Mr Boateng’s telephone number after two hours, with the promise that he would be called.
With just two days left to the close of nominations, it is unclear what his next move would be.
The presidential hopeful went to the psychiatric hospital in Pantang on Monday to get his brain checked in a bid to prove his mental fitness.
Meanwhile, deputy NDC General Secretary, Koku Anyidoho has said on Tuesday evening that, the party won’t sell its presidential nominations forms to anybody who has vowed to legalize marijuana.
“We are not about to sell our [presidential primary] forms to anybody who wants to legalise the sale of wee. It is as simple as that…..Secondly this is the same person who has said that when he gets the opportunity to become flag bearer of the party, he is going to make Nana Akufo- Addo his running mate…..Obviously he has no understanding of the NDC’s guidelines. We are not going to waste our forms on any such person. It is as simple as that, nobody will take us to any court, nobody will hold us liable, we will not sell our forms to George Boateng because if we give it to him he is going to legalize the sale of wee and we’ll not allow it to happen. It is as simple as that…..We do not condone the export of wee…If the NPP wants him as their flag-bearer, fine; let them have him,” Koku noted.
Mr George Boateng has vowed to she the party if he is not called tomorrow.
“If tomorrow they refuse to call me, then I will go to the court.”
