Constituency executives at Asante Mampong in the Ashanti Region have rejected nominations forms submitted by former member of Parliament and presidential hopeful, Addai Nimo.

The forms, according to Ultimate FM’s Isaac Bediako, was submitted by a delegation of five including supporters of the aspirant.

The chairman of the elections committee Mr Gyesi Nimarko said he is blind and cannot read the writings on the forms.

The constituency chairman also added the forms cannot be accepted because the incumbent member of Parliament has informed him that he and his followers are on their way to submit his form so Mr Nimo’s nominations cannot be accepted until Thursday.

Currently, Mr Addai Nimo and his supporters are holding a meeting in his office for a decision to be taken on the matter.

The former MP was denied access to the forms by the constituency Chairman Luta Asare claiming the forms have run out on the very day the forms were given to the constituency executives at a meeting between regional and constituency executives of the party.

This forced the aspirant to pick his nomination at the regional office of the party in Kumasi.
