The National Executive Committee of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is investigating nomination forms of all three parliamentary aspirants of Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency over purported anomalies.
All three including 2020 Parliamentary Candidate John Setor Dumelo filed their forms online but have had the forms said to contain anomalies.
“The issue is about the filing,” NDC’s Greater Accra Regional Secretary, Theophilus Tetteh Chaie, who is also a member of the regional vetting committee, told TV3‘s Christian Yalley.
It comes after the vetting for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency was indefinitely put on hold.
“There were some challenges filing on the last day and we are looking at the documentations because the filing was done online and the online filing has certain features on the documents and if you look at the three candidates there’s some form of anomalies although they claim to go through the process.
“So, our national leadership is investigating the mater so that they will, in turn, give us a true state of affairs,” the former Ablekuma Central Member of Parliament said.
It is unclear when the three aspirants will be vetted as the exercise ends nationwide on Wednesday, April 5.
Mr Dumelo, who increased the votes of the NDC in the Constituency in the last elections, is facing contest from his ‘former’ friend, Fred Nuamah, and Moses Barfi Acheampong.
The three were to have been vetted on Monday but the new development could see them being vetted at the national office, though it will be before the primaries on Saturday, May 13.
Mr Tetteh Chaie said the committee is waiting for further directives from national leadership to decide on what to do.
