“We are done with filling the nomination form, we fully understand everything contained on the form. This shows you how organised we are as a political party. We will not wait until a day to close of nomination to rush to the EC offices to seek clarification. Look at the several days that have passed after the NPP picked up their presidential nomination form, and look at when they went to the EC to have things explained to them. It tells you that they are not serious about the governance of this country.”

He revealed that the NDC will submit their nomination forms on Thursday, September 29, 2016

 “We are very ready, what we didn’t understand the form, we sought clarification the same day we picked it, so it was explained to us early to enable us to prepare in advance. God willing, we’ll file our nomination tomorrow,” he added
