The National Democratic Congress (NDC) upcoming presidential primary has been marred with death threats and open intimidations; a shocked contender for the position has disclosed.
Goosie Tanoh, who is in the NDC presidential race, has alleged that some of the party’s delegates have received death threats from known party members, ahead of the elections, which is slated for the latter part of this month.
According to him, there is a grand agenda by certain party gurus, whose names he refused to mention, to adopt diabolical strategies to ensure that the delegates voted for one particular candidate, hence the death threats.
Goosie Tanoh claimed that most of his supporters, who are NDC delegates, have received death threats and open intimidation for opting for him (Goosie), stressing that the death threats and intimidations ought to stop immediately since it would not help party cohesion and peace.
Goosie Tanoh made the allegations in an interview with Kofi Asante of Nhyira Fm in Kumasi.
He was of the view that the party’s delegates should be allowed to vote for the candidate who they think has the qualities to help lead the NDC as flagbearer and wrestle political power from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government in 2020.
Goosie Tanoh, who is confident of victory in the NDC presidential race, without mincing words, stated emphatically that the death threats and open intimidations must stop for the sake of party unity and peace.
The NDC presidential hopeful did not mention those who were behind the death threats and intimidations but stated confidently that despite the intimidations and death threats “I will still win the NDC race”.
Goosie Tanoh disclosed that the NDC delegates have embraced his grassroots empowerment message, adding that if voted as NDC flagbearer, he would not neglect the party’s grassroots members as it happened during the 2016 polls.
