The National Coordinator of the Spio Fan Club has served notice that it will file a complaint against the former President John Dramani Mahama for secretly using the party’s unity walk platform to project himself and to campaign for his second presidential slot on the ticket of the main opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC).
According to Kofi Ahema, the group will file the complaint if the former president takes the decision to finally contest the presidential slot for the 2020 presidential elections.
Mr. Ahema made this revelation on the ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ show on Happy FM over the comments by his candidate (Dr. Spio-Gabrah) that the party’s unity walks is no more a platform for unity but a platform to promote and project the former president.
He warned that if it is out that the former person used the platform to project himself ahead of all the others in the race for the flag bearership race of the party, they prevail on the party to take a decision on the former president.
He stressed that what will prevent the group from filing a complaint against the former president will be if he does not contest the NDC presidential election slated for later this year.
He called for a level playing field in the party ahead of the presidential race of the party.
The party leadership must be seen to be fair to all the aspirants in the race and not favour one particular person just because of his status as a former president.
The party must be fair to preserve the unity the party is enjoying to enable it wrest power from the president Nana Akufo-Addo’s and his governing New Patriotic Party(NPP) he argued.
