‘Hopocrite’ Asiedu Nketia Criticising EC’s Filing Fees? — Nana Akomea Wonders



Nana Akomea, Ghanaian politician and a Member of Parliament for Okaikwei South from 1997 to 2009 has slammed the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Aseidu Nketia for being a hypocrite to comment on the EC’s GHC100k filing fees.

According to Nana Akomea, the NDC imposed a whooping Ghc420,000 filing fees on their presidential aspirants. When party faithfuls spoke about it, this same Asiedu Nketia who is criticising the EC for their high filing fee ridiculed his own party faithful when they spoke about the high filing fees within their party.

He further wondered why the NDC General Secretary will today be protesting the filing fee of the EC which was even lower than that of the NDC.

Below is His full post;

Heard the ndc general secretary speaking vehemently against the ghc100,000 presidential filing fees announced by the electoral commission.
I wished the electoral commission would consult/engage the political parties before such announcements.
But the ndc secretary’s reaction, l believe, is just one of those things that puts us politicians into disrepute.
The ndc had imposed a ghc420,000 filing fees on their presidential aspirants.
This was met with loud protests from all but one of the presidential aspirants, which protests were ridiculed by the same general secretary. Eventually the filing fees were reduced from ghc420,000 to ghc300,000.
Now when a political party imposes filing fees of ghc300,000 on its own aspirants for an internal election, how is it now protesting at filing fees of ghc100,000 for a national election?
