Nii Amasah Namoale, the Campaign Coordinator for Prof. Joshua Alabi, has described as outrageous the GHc400,000 slapped on all flagbearer aspirants of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as filing fee.
According to him, such a decision is disappointing and he therefore wants the party’s Council of Elders to intervene.
Following a meeting by the NDC’s National Executive Committee (NEC) on Thursday, it was agreed that all male flagbearer aspirants will pay GHc400,000 as filing fee.
Female flagbearer aspirants are also expected to pay GHc200,000, while the amount is pegged at GHc150,000 for persons with disability aspiring to the same position.
Meanwhile, the nomination form for the NDC flagbearer slot is going for GHS20,000.
For parliamentary aspirants, males are expected to pay GHS20,000 as filing fees, while female aspirants will pay half the amount.
All aspirants have subsequently been given 10 days to officially and properly file their nominations.
However, Mr. Namoale finds the filing fee for flagbearer aspirants to be outrageous and has duly expressed his disappointment.
“In fact the amount is outrageous and unreasonable but this is a NEC decision. We will like to appeal to the Council of Elders to meet with the NEC to review that amount,” he said on Asempa FM’s Ekossii Sen programme.

"The unreasonableness is on the date, you cannot use 10 days to tour the whole country to sign on the form, you can't. That 10 days is too short a time..."
"No matter what prof Alabi will still contest. I will plead with the other flag bearer aspirants including former president Mahama to reject the amount, the fee should come below GHS100,000," he added.
