The Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi, has accused the Electoral Commission Chairperson of been mischievous, after she expressed her frustration that John Mahama did not submit his nomination forms face to face.
On Wednesday, Jean Mensa said she would have liked as to hash out several of the concerns Mr. Mahama has voiced publicly regarding the electoral process.
However Mr. Gyamfi asserts the EC has been rejecting attempts at dialogue by the NDC.
” It is very mischievous for Jean Mensa to suggest that was expecting to see the flagbearer himself to have a conversation with him” he said.
According to him, the NDC has made official requests to the Commission for a conference but fruitless.
” Till date, Madam Jean Mensah has not deemed it fit to reply that letter or even call us for a meeting. If Jean Mensa truly wished for a conversation with the National Democratic Congress or flagbearer, I am sure by now, she would have least replied the letter or would have had the decency to invite the flagbearer for a meeting but she hasn’t done so,” he claimed.
The NDC Communications Officer additionally said there had not been much to be read into Mr. Mahama’s absence at the EC to file his nomination forms in person.
““If you look at the filling of the forms, getting people to endorse the forms and all that, it is normally done by the Secretariat of the party which is headed by the General Secretary of the party.”
His presidential nomination forms were submitted by NDC General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia.
