Former President,John Dramani Mahama is seeking to be re-elected as flag bearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the 2020 elections.
The NDC’s National Executive Committee (NEC) on Thursday, November 29, resolved that all male flag bearer aspirants should pay GHS 400,000 as filing fee while female flag bearer-aspirants are to pay GHC200,000 and persons with disability aspiring to the same position are to pay GHC 150,000.
The nomination forms are being sold at GHC 20,000.
Critics, including some of the flag bearer aspirants, have slammed the “exorbitant” filing fee.
Miss Tracey Boakye, a supporter of Mahama has however said in an interview that the filing fee was cool and added that she paid GHC2,000 for Mahama.
According to her, she paid on Sunday through the shortcode provided by the Mahama Campaign Team to help raise funds for the former President.
