The posters described Sylvester Mensah as the best choice for president in 2020.
Sylvester Mensah "our choice for president 2020". Our hope for years to come."
It is unclear whether Sylvester Mensah has a hand in the manufacturing of the posters.
But a statement issued and signed by the former CEO of NHIS asked members of the NDC to ignore the posters.
He said, "My attention has been drawn to a poster in circulation announcing my interest in contesting the next Presidential Primaries of the National Democrat Congress (NDC). I wish to place on record that I have neither circulated nor caused to be circulated any such poster announcing my intentions."
"I am persuaded that our attention as NDC for the moment should be focused on understanding why we lost the 2016 general elections, rebuilding our party, strengthening the grassroots and restoring hope and confidence in our membership"
However, posters of former Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur as a presidential aspirant of the NDC have emerged.
Former Minister of Finance and Economic planning Dr. Kwabena Duffuor has said he will not contest the presidency in 2020 on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to him, "For the avoidance of any doubt, I wish to put on record that I have no intention, whatsoever, to contest for any elective public office."
Dr Duffuor in a statement said, "I have served my country in various capacities and consider myself a statesman who is retired from active politics".
