NDC race: Goosie Tanoh to pick nomination form today

Goosie Tanoh, who is a flagbearer hopeful of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), is set to pick up nomination form today December 8, 2018.

Goosie Tanoh was among four others who failed to pick up forms last Tuesday when the part shut the window on forms picking.

The four which included Ekow Spio Garbrah, Nurideen Iddrissu, Kojo Bonsu and Elikplim Agbemava were all unhappy and protested the GHS 400,000 filing fee.

This led to a meeting between the Council of Elders of NDC and NEC. After the meeting, the GHS 400,000 was slashed to GHS 300,000, but the fee for the nomination form still stood at Ghc20,000.

The Council also pushed for the primaries to be held on January 26, instead of the initial January 19, 2019 date, and pushed for December 4 nomination deadline to Saturday, December 8, to allow for persons who could not pick forms more time to do so
Goosie Tanoh, who is optimistic about his chances of leading the party into the 2020 elections after a meeting with the Council of Elders, moved to his home region, the Central Region, to begin the second leg of his campaign tour.

He had earlier toured some constituencies in the Region and asked delegates to elect him as their flagbearer to secure victory for the party in the 2020 presidential polls.

Already, Goosie Tanoh’s 2020 campaign tour has taken him to some constituencies in the Volta Region, Greater Accra Region, Upper West Region, Upper East Region, and Northern Region, where he enjoyed significant support from voters.
