Kumawood actress support Mahama filing fee with GHc2,000.

Mr Mahama is seeking to stand again to be the flag bearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the 2020 elections with a filing fee of GHc 420,000.

Kumawood actress Tracey Boakye has disclosed that she paid GHS2,000 as her contribution towards raising an amount of GHS420,000 for former President John Mahama as his filing and nomination fee. The NDC, at its National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting on Thursday, 29 November at the party’s headquarters in Accra, resolved that all male flag bearer aspirants are expected to pay GHS400,000 as filing fee while female flag bearer-aspirants are to pay GHS200,000 and persons with disability aspiring to the same position are to pay GHS150,000.

The nomination forms are being sold at GHS20,000. Critics, including some of the flag bearer aspirants, have slammed the “exorbitant” filing fee.However, Ms Boakye, a staunch supporter of Mr Mahama, said on Accra100.5FM’s Ayekoo Ayekoo mid-morning show on Monday, 3 December 2018 that the filing fee “is cool”.   “I paid GHS2,000 for Mahama”, she said.

According to her, she paid on Sunday through the shortcode provided by the Mahama campaign team to help raise funds for the former President. Meanwhile, some grassroots supporters of the NDC on Monday, 3 November 2018 queued at the former president at the Cantonments, Accra to contribute their widow’s mite towards the former president’s GHS420,000 fee. Also, MPs4JM, a group of 96 Minority Members of Parliament who have declared their support for Mr Mahama's bid to run for the NDC flag bearer, has so far mobilised 603 pledges of GHS1,000 each towards footing the fees of Mr Mahama.

The NDC’s presidential primary is slated for 19 January 2019. Sources close to MPs for Mahama says that the group has so far raised GHS600,000 through its "Operation 420 people willing to contribute GHS1,000 for JM" campaign.
