Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo
2016 Presidential Nominee of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has stated that as he is the first presidential candidate to submit forms to EC, therefore he will automatically win the 2016 general elections, slated for 7 December.
According to him, God will favor him and help him to win the elections because he has filed his forms first as a Presidential nominee.
He expressed this while submitting his forms to Electoral Commission today, on 29 September. He told the Chairperson of Electoral Body, Mrs Charlotte Osei that, ‘As I’m the first to submit my nomination forms, by God’s mercy I will be the first one you’ll announce [winner].’
A nomination form of NPP’s flag bearer was received by EC Boss. But the Electoral Commission didn’t take the banker’s draft of GHS50,000 (the filing fees for presidential candidates) that was attached with the forms because some members of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) have slammed EC over demanding high filling fee that is not affordable .
According to a recently News from EC office by Kwesi Parker-Williams, EC would refuse to take the GHS50,000 banker’s draft from all the presidential contestants so as not to be in scorn of court.
