National Democratic Congress flagbearer aspirant, Ekwow Spio Garbrah, says he is still in the Flagbearership race after failing to pick forms to meet December 4, 2018, deadline set by the party.
Addressing the media in Accra on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, Mr Spio Garbrah said he was waiting for the outcome of a meeting between the National Executives and the party’s Council of Elders to know the way forward.
“I have sought the intervention of the Council of Elders which I believe will be a level playing field as well as greater fairness and justice for the other aspirants who want to lead our great party,” he said.
Mr Spio Garbrah was among eight aspirants who petitioned the party’s council of elders over the GHC420,000.00 announced as the filing of nomination forms fees.
About 10 aspirants were expected to compete for the flag bearer position for the NDC but by the close of December 4, 2018, which was the deadline, only five aspirants out of the ten aspirants had picked their nomination forms.
But Mr Garbrah is of the firm conviction that issues that have been raised by the aspirants are not about the quantum of monies to be paid but the principles of equity, fairness and justice which he seeks.
