They added that Goosie Tanoh, who is a true party man, has experience in mass mobilization and party building at all levels, adding that their choice of candidate is incorruptible.

They explained that in 1998 and 1999, Goosie Tanoh led a campaign against the  undemocratic practices in the NDC, such as the imposition of parliamentary candidates on delegates by  senior state officials.

Since 2009, Goosie Tanoh has stayed focused on the development of critical infrastructure that supports the economic integration and wealth of West Africa.

And to the group, Goosie Tanoh should stand in the contest so that when he wins, Ghanaians will vote him as their new president, who is devoted to seeing the projects that he has incubated, bear fruits.
