Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary aspirant, Fred Nuamah is facing insurmountable hurdles as he laces his boot to compete in the upcoming NDC primaries.
The actor and businessman believes that unseen forces are out to frustrate his bid to contest.
On Wednesday, March 22, 2023, Mr. Nuamah said in a press statement that all efforts to file his electronic nomination had failed.
“For the past 72 hours, I have not been able to complete the filing of my nomination electronically, as well as make payment for the filing,” a portion of the statement read
According to him despite engaging with personnel in charge of the platform to rectify the situation, there has been no lasting solution; a situation he described as “another Machiavellian tactic to prevent” him from filing his nomination
“All efforts have proven futile after my engagement with the relevant personnel behind the party’s electronic platform, I found this to be another Machiavellian tactic to prevent me from successfully filing my nomination,” he said
He has in the meantime filed the nomination manually with the hopes that the National Election steering committee of the party will come to his aid.
“In the meantime, I have presented my Manuel requirement to the election directorate to signify my submission while I await the online rectification”, he revealed.
The NDC announced earlier that the filing of nomination forms by aspiring presidential and parliamentary candidates of the party should be done between Monday, March 20 to Wednesday 22, 2023.
After the official deadline, the vetting process would begin on March 27 to 29.
Fred Nuamah is contesting against his former friend and the 2020 candidate for the National Democratic Congress, John Dumelo in the upcoming primaries.
