John Alex Hamah, a Trade Unionist and Industrial, Public Relations consultant, has picked a Presidential Candidate nomination forms to contest the upcoming polls as an Independent Candidate.

Mr Hamah who has a long political career and founded the Ghana Democratic Party in 1969 said his decision to contest follows calls on him by several workers across the country for him to enter the race as an unaligned Presidential candidate.

“I’ve been in exile, I have suffered a lot. But now at my age though I’m old age, I’m young in thoughts. Now the workers of Ghana are suffering and the voice of labour should be heard. We helped Nkrumah to make it possible for Ghana to have independence and Trade Union Leaders have suffered some have died,” he told Accra-based Kasapa FM.

He argued: “The time has come for a leader who is courageous, patriotic and incorruptible. Ghanaians should vote for me because I understand the problems of Labour and Industry. I have negotiated with top employers since independence and so I know the problems of both employers and workers. People don’t understand the problems of workers. People are talking about providing jobs but they don’t understand workers problems. With my experience I will be the right person to be President of Ghana.”
