Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that four National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential aspirants have picked nomination forms.
This was confirmed after the deadline for picking the forms came to an end on Tuesday, December 4, 2018.
The four candidates are former president John Mahama, Professor Joshua Alabi, Sylvester Mensah and Stephen Atubiga.
YEN.com.gh understands that forms were picked for a fifth candidate, Alban Bagbin, but he rejected them.
He explained that he had not authorized anyone to pick the forms on his behalf, and for that matter, he was not interested in them.
According to the legislator, he, together with other aspirants, have sent a petition to the Council of Elders of the party.
Bagbin went on to say that he was aware the council will be meeting tomorrow, and for that reason, he was waiting for their decision.
Aside Mahama, all the other aspirants reportedly expressed reservations about the GHC 400,000 filing fee and the GHC 20,000 charged for the forms.
Some of the aspirants had began adopting strategies to raise funds to help their campaign bid.
One of them, Dr. Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, allegedly called for the resignation of two top executives of the party.
The NDC is scheduled to hold a congress to select its flagbearer on Saturday, January 19, 2019.
