NDC flagbearership: Ernest Krobeah pulls out of race
A presidential candidate hopeful of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ernest Kwaku Kobeah, has pulled out of the flagbearership race.
He submitted his letter to the party’s elections committee on Wednesday, March 29, 2023.
The businessman was the first of four candidates to file a nomination to contest in the NDC flagbearership race on Tuesday, March 21.
Mr Krobeah had explained that he wanted to create an opportunity and set an example for the youth not to be intimidated by contesting for the position.
He also promised to build a new Ghana if given the nod by the delegates.
However, the reason behind his decision to pull out of the race is not immediately known.
His vetting on Tuesday, March 28, was suspended and was expected to continue on Wednesday, March 29.
“There is no issue. Just [that] I need to come back tomorrow. Everything is fine and successful,” he told journalists after he came out of the suspended vetting process.
Meanwhile, after a successful vetting process, former President John Dramani Mahama, former Finance Minister Dr Kwabena Duffour and former Kumasi Mayor Kojo Bonsu have been cleared to contest in the NDC’s May 13 primaries.
