“Records available to the Committee indicate that Mr Evans paid his membership dues covering 2015 on 5th Dec. 2016 and that for 2016 on 14th Feb, 2017. In view of these, Mr Evans is also caught by the 90-day rule and therefore disqualified,” a statement signed by chairman of the Election Committee, Ben Assorow said.
"We want to assure our supporters to continue the campaign to bring about the much needed change in the leadership of our once vibrant and envious association."
The statement signed by the campaign manager, Boahene Asamoah, said, "We are more than convinced that a cabal of benefactors and surrogates of the incumbent President are bent on perpetuating themselves and their personal aggrandisement at the expense of the collective good of all Journalists.
"'Team Lloyd' has been made aware almost a month ago about this ploy to deny Lloyd the Presidency by any means possible and we are working hard to reverse this bogus decision by any means possible.
"We therefore, call on all journalists to disregard this obvious Machiavellian tactics at the 11th hour, because “no force or army is too strong to stop a peoples’ will for change.”
"Our candidate Lloyd Evans, will be on the ballot paper come March 31," the campaign team vowed.
