The National Democratic Congress is investigating the circumstances under which unauthorized persons picked application forms for the chairmanship of the party for Professor Kwesi Botchway.
It was widely reported that Prof. Botchway would contest for the position of National Chairman in the NDC, but a statement from his office quickly debunked the reports.
According to the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu-Nketia, the two persons who misrepresented Professors Botchway is known and the party is getting to the root of the occurrence.
“Professor Botchway has complained to me, and so he tried to reach the two persons, we are yet to get to him to find out how he did it, so until we are able to get to the button of the issue, we are unable to commerce further operation,” he said.
