RE: CONSTITUTIONAL BREACHES FOR GJA ELECTIONS 2017
Accra-March 20, 2017- The Campaign office of our Candidate Lloyd Evans wishes to point out to the general public some misinformation purportedly put out since the story about the disqualification of our Candidate Lloyd Evans was first put out last Friday, March 17, 2017.
First, the rule of natural justice was not adhered to.

We wish to point out to the Chairman of the Election Committee that the very same rules and regulations of the GJA, which mandates the National Executive Council…
