The Greater Accra Regional Campaign Coordinator of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the 2016 election, Sylvester Mensah, has distanced himself from circulating posters indicating he plans to vie for the Flagbearership of the NDC ahead of the 2020 elections.

In a statement copied to citifmonline.com, Mr. Mensah said he was not behind the circulation of such posters and urged the media and the public to ignore them.

“My attention has been drawn to a poster in circulation announcing my interest in contesting the next Presidential Primaries of the National Democratic Congress (NDC). I wish to place on record that I have neither circulated nor caused to be circulated any such poster announcing my intentions.”

The posters, which bear Mr. Mensah’s photo has the inscription, “Sylvester Mensah, our hope for years to come” and “Our Choice for President, 2020.”

The posters also indicate that they were sponsored by a group calling itself; Believers in Sly.

Find below Mr. Mensah’s full statement

My attention has been drawn to a poster in circulation announcing my interest in contesting the next Presidential Primaries of the National Democrat Congress (NDC).

I wish to place on record that I have neither circulated nor caused to be circulated any such poster announcing my intentions.

I am persuaded that our attention as NDC for the moment should be focused on understanding why we lost the 2016 general elections, rebuilding our party, strengthening the grassroots and restoring hope and confidence in our membership.

I advise party members, the media, and the general public to ignore the poster/resume and remain steadfast and united for the task ahead in the coming years.

Signed: Sylvester Mensah
