Mfantsiman NDC Petitions NEC over illegal endorsement of nomination forms by PC Aspirant,Richmond Atta Williams

Some section of the ward coordinators in the Kormantse Area in Mfantsiman Constituency of the National Democratic Congress, NDC have petitioned the leadership of the party over what they claim as illegal endorsement of nomination forms by Mr Richmond Atta Williams.

Mr Williams is contesting the upcoming parliamentary primaries of the NDC in the mfantsiman constituency.

A petition seen by, alleges some fraudulent act done by the parliamentary aspirant.


We, the ward coordinators of Kormantse namely Mark Acquah (Ahenbrom ward), Charles Mensah(Amanson Pokum ward) and Robert Quaye( Hasowodze ward) respectfully of National Democratic Congrss in the Mfantseman constituency in the Central Region of Ghana write to draw your attention to an illegality that has been perpetuated by one, Mr. Richmond Atta Williams,a parliamentary candidate aspirant of the Mfantseman constituency in the upcoming parliamentary contest process in the constituency and Kormantse to be precise.

Sir, as part of the Constituency’s checks on ellegibity on the party members of *”good standing’* who are allowed by the guidelines for the endorsement of the nomination forms of the prospective aspirants,the following wrongdoings were detected:

– *using of names without consent*
– *wrongful quotation of membership numbers*
– *forging of signatures of executives*

Whilst we conduct our duties as executive members of the Kormantse chapter of Mfantseman NDC party, we are also mindful of *chapter seven article 39(c) and 40(1)* of the party’s constitution which clearly stipulates the *code of conduct* as well as *faithful implementation of all lawful decisions of the party.*

The constitution frowns on any person purported to have conducted an illegality and abhors such act.

Consequentially, we crave on your indulgence to carefully study the documents before you,accertain it’s facts and apply it’s appropriate sanctions.

Sir, we firmly believe in the constitutional provisions as well as the parliamentary candidate contest guidelines of our party that allows every aspiring candidate to visit all the branches within his/her constituency to have his nomination forms duly endorsed by members of the party and therefore respect and support such decision, but as well find it outrageously strange for Mr. Richmond Atta Williams to sit at the comfort of home and forge documents ostensibly to pave his way through the backdoor to become a parliamentary candidate for Mfantseman constituency.

We therefore find this impersonation act as criminal, fraudulent, demeaning, and undeserving to lead a Constituency which can boast of high profile politicians, personalities and also with rich political history.

We therefore call for his immediate disqualification and subsequent withdrawal from the upcoming Mfantseman Parliamentary primaries to save us from any embarrassment and further court action by the affected executives.

We hope our petition will be treated with all seriousness it deserves and the necessary consideration it requires.

Please find attached the names, branches, contacts and membership numbers of the executives for your perusal.

Thank you.
