The disqualification of Papa Kwesi Nduom came as a surprise for many voters. We at ThinkGhana would urge Dr Nduom to fire his lawyers who had the responsibility to make sure such discrepancies such as that which was found in his forms were sort out before presenting the forms to the EC. But perhaps they were too busy taking the EC to court on the issue of the GHC50,000 & GHC10,000 filing fees for presidential and parliamentary aspirants.
We’re also baffled by the disqualification of experienced presidential aspirants like PNC Edward Mahama & GCPP Dr Henry Lartey.
However this will be the second time Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings has tried unsuccessfully to submit her nominations forms and qualify for elections. We at ThinkGhana are of the opinion that its about time she hang up the gloves to her presidential dreams.
