Even though some aspirants have raised concerns over the amount, the party’s general secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia says the filing fee is to make them prove their resourcefulness.

“If the day comes, vote for John Mahama. Please I am reminding you again when the day comes, vote for me. I don’t want to lose even a single vote. I believe we will win on the day but Ghanaians are waiting to see how many NDC people are supporting John Mahama. So I don’t want to lose any vote. Ghanaians are counting on us to come and salvage them from the difficulties under the NPP,” Mr Mahama noted.

Mahama is among some 10 other party stalwarts who are to pay a total sum of GHC420,000 as filing fee for the January 2019 contest to elect a new flagbearer.

Not too long ago, YEN.com.gh gave an extensive report on the NDC's delegates congress which saw new executives elected to serve the party's interest.

Reports have also indicated that Mr Mahama, has plans of getting some party faithful to help him raise funds to meet the filing fee before the set deadline of submission.

Even though some aspirants have raised concerns over the amount, the party’s general secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia says the filing fee is to make them prove their resourcefulness.

“We don’t expect them to cough this amount from their accounts, but they are the lead fundraisers for the party so they must prove their capability to raise funds for the party. The candidate becomes the leader of the party so he or she must show that they can raise funds for the party.

“I disagree with anyone who thinks that raising money to file nomination encourages corruption. If the system wants to discouraging corruption then we must all talk about possible means of doing so”, the General Secretary of the party noted.
