A disqualified aspirant of the Ghana Journalist Association (GJA) postponed elections; Lloyd Evans has welcomed the decision taken by the Elections Dispute and Adjudication Committee (EDAC) to overturn his earlier disqualification.
A statement issued here Friday signed by Campaign Manager, Boahene Asamoah said, “Team Lloyd has taken notice of a statement issued and signed by the Chairman of the Elections Dispute and Adjudication Committee (EDAC) of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) in which our candidate has been cleared to stand for GJA elections.
While “Team Lloyd” awaits the full report from the EDAC, we wish to reiterate our earlier promise that our candidate will indeed be on the ballot box for this year’s elections.”
The Lloyd campaign team expressed its gratitude to its well-wishers across the country for standing by the truth.
It further called on the various campaign teams in all regions across the country to resume their campaign to get Lloyd Evans elected as the president of the GJA.
“Team Lloyd calls on all our regional campaign teams to start vigorous campaign across the length and breadth of the country. Our opponents cannot play fair if Lloyds’ disqualification plot is anything to go by.
Therefore, the Campaign to get Lloyd elected should be based on the vision of Lloyd, which is to make the once vibrant GJA more powerful in the current political dispensation and to give Journalists the resources and the capacity to deliver on their mandate,” the statement said.
