National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential aspirant, Goosie Tanoh, has alleged intimidation against members of his campaign team, especially at the regional level of the party.
According to him, his team has encountered these unfortunate incidents in the course of their campaign across the country.
Speaking to the media after interacting with Minority MPs in parliament, Goosie Tanoh however said he is optimistic about his chances in the race.
“I think that they appreciated the message, and I believe that it will probably influence some of them to vote for me. We are not interested in intimidating somebody or forcing anyone to vote for us. We believe that the fairer the playing field is, it promotes unity in the party, and any attempt to intimidate people and direct their attention to a particular formula is not going to work. It will create disunity in the party.”
“We are cataloguing all this intimidation by various levels of the party and so at the appropriate time we will release them so that everybody has an idea”, he added.
Goosie Tanoh gets more endorsements

He received such endorsements when he visited Awutu Senya West and Gomoa East constituencies to canvass for votes.
Constituency and branch executives of the party in both constituencies who indicated their resolve to campaign for Goosie Tanoh, described him as the best amongst all the presidential aspirants.
