NDC's Kojo Adu Asare threatens court action against party after ballot trouble

A contestant for deputy General Secretary position of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kojo Adu Asare, could not find his name on the ballot paper at the 9th national delegates’ congress.

The former Adentan Member of Parliament (MP) found the name "Justice Yeboah" instead of his by his photo on the ballot paper.

Adu Asare was contesting for the position of the Deputy General Secretary of the party. The position was won by Barbara Serwaa Asamoah.

The congress itself saw over 9000 delegates electing national executives from the position of chairman to the communications director of the NDC.

Myjoyonline.com reports that the said "Justice Yeboah" did not contest for any position at the congress which was held at the Fantasy Dome at the Trade Fair Centre in Accra.

The anomaly means Kojo Adu Adu Asare although a contestant, only had his picture but not his name. His supporters were left confused.
