The NDC’s Deputy General Secretary, Mr Peter Boamah Otokunor, presented the form to Mr Tetteh Wayo around 3 pm after issuing a banker's draft for GH₵20,000.

In a brief remark, Mr Wayo, urged the executive members of NDC to ensure a fair and level ground for all the flag aspirants.

Mr Spio-Garbrah who has expressed a strong interest to lead the NDC to Election 2020 declined to pick the nomination form earlier as a protest to what he described as high cost of the filing fee.
