Get Out If You Can’t Pay GH₵ 100K – Obiri Boahen Defends EC On Filing Fees For Presidential Aspirants



Deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen has backed the Electoral Commission (EC)’s decision to increase the filing fee for presidential aspirants from ₵50,000 to ₵100,000.

To him, any party that cannot raise the said amount should go no where near Ghana’s presidency.

Commenting on the issues on Joy FM‘s Top Story, Mr. Boahen said, “If you cannot raise ¢100,000 please get out. Those who can mobilise will pay.”

The EC announced at a ‘Let The Citizen Know’ encounter on Monday, that filing fees for presidential aspirants of the 2020 election has been pegged at ₵100,000, which is a 100% increase of what they paid in 2016.
