Tema East NDC’s contest questioned

The candidature of a former National Democratic Congress (NDC) Organiser for Tema East in the forthcoming district assembly election may be in danger after his conviction became a topic for discussion among the electorates in Tema Newtown.

According to court records made available to the Ghana News Agency,   the NDC Organiser, Frederick Kojoga Dekagbe was convicted for stealing in 2013 by a Tema District Magistrate Court, Community Centre.

He was charged with stealing, contrary to section 124 (1) of Act 29, 1960 and paid a fine of 20 penalty units after pleading guilty.

Mr Alex Ankobia, Greater Accra Regional Director of the Electoral Commission (EC), confirmed in a telephone interview yesterday that the EC was now aware of the issue and that he was waiting on the headquarters of the Commission for directions on the matter.

Mr Dekagbe is one of the contestants vying for the Dade-Agbo electoral seat in Tema Newtown.

All attempts to contact him proved futile.
