NDC Primaries: ” Strange man” steps up to contest Mahama

The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Oyarifa Branch Youth Organizer George Boateng, is determined to make a daring move by contesting President John Mahama during the party’s upcoming Presidential Primaries in November.

According to him, he is putting himself up for the herculean task as he has strong conviction that he’ll do a better job at the Presidency than President Mahama is currently doing.

His intended move comes few hours after an admonishing by deputy General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, urging prospective candidates desirous of competing President John Mahama at the NDC’s upcoming presidential primaries to do a self introspection before pursuing their dream.

“There is no discrimination and so if you think you have the quality, go and pick the nomination forms and go through the process but remember that ye must check thyself,” the deputy scribe told Fiifi Banson in an interview on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.3 FM.

But this “wise counsel” by Koku, appears to have fallen on the deaf ears of George Boateng as he is bent on making the courageous move.

In an interview with Kasapa News, George Boateng stated that he is joining the race to seek the interest of the grassroots who are the core members of the NDC.

“President Mahama after enjoying the support of the grassroots has done very little for them. Currently if you are an NDC member and you don’t have money you are looked down upon and you also cannot hold any position in the party, this is not the NDC I’ve known over the years” he noted.

The 45 year old noted that Ghana under President John Mahama is currently regrettably in a state of economic slavery, adding that he is sure to reverse the situation when he secures the NDC Presidential candidate slot and ultimately become the President of Ghana in 2017.

Meanwhile, it remains to be seen if George Boateng who’s making this “strange” move will be able to cough up a whopping GHC 50,000 filing fee for the presidential slot.

Several political watchers are already concluding that President Mahama is likely to receive popular acclamation during the party’s congress, as no party member will be bold enough to challenge him.
