Lloyd Evans, GJA Presidential Candidate

GJA polls: Disqualification 'bogus' – Lloyd Evans
The camp of Mr. Lloyd Evans in the Ghana
Journalists’ Association presidency race has
rubbished the disqualification of its candidate.

A statement from the GJA Elections Committee said
Mr. Evans is not in good standing per the rules of
engagement.

“Mr Lloyd Evans, who was vying for the position of
President, failed to meet the requirement under
Article 47 (b) (iii) which states that “All
members aspiring for Executive positions at the
National and Regional levels must be members in
good standing at least ninety (90) days before the
elections.

“Records available to the Committee indicate that
Mr Evans paid his membership dues covering 2015 on
5th Dec. 2016 and that for 2016 on 14th Feb, 2017.
In view of these, Mr Evans is also caught by the
90-day rule and therefore disqualified,” the
chairman of the Election Committee Ben. Assorow
said.

However, the campaign office of Mr. Evans has
described the development as “bogus”.

“We are more than convinced that a cabal of
benefactors and surrogates of the incumbent
President are bent on perpetuating themselves and
their personal aggrandizement at the expense of
the collective good of all Journalists.

““Team Lloyd” has been made aware almost a month
ago about this ploy to deny Lloyd the Presidency
by any means possible and we are working hard to
reverse this bogus decision by any means
possible.

“We therefore, call on all journalists to
disregard this obvious Machiavellian tactics at
the 11th hour, because “no force or army is too
strong to stop a peoples’ will for change.”

Below is the full unedited statement:

LLOYD EVANS CAMPAIGN OFFICE
PRESS RELEASE
For immediate Release

OUR CANDIDATE LLOYD EVANS WILL BE ON THE BALLOT
PAPER

Accra; March 17, 2017- The attention of the
Campaign Office of the aspiring President of the
Ghana Journalists Association (GJA), Mr Lloyd
Evans, has been drawn to a statement issued and
signed by Mr Ben Assorow, on behalf of the GJA
announcing the disqualification of our Candidate
today.

We wish to assure the general public and the
teeming Lloyd’s supporters of journalists across
the length and breadth of the country to remain
calm in the face of this obvious tilted
interpretation of the GJA Constitution.

We want to assure our supporters to continue the
campaign to bring about the much needed change in
the leadership of our once vibrant and envious
association.

We are more than convinced that a cabal of
benefactors and surrogates of the incumbent
President are bent on perpetuating themselves and
their personal aggrandizement at the expense of
the collective good of all Journalists.

“Team Lloyd” has been made aware almost a month
ago about this ploy to deny Lloyd the Presidency
by any means possible and we are working hard to
reverse this bogus decision by any means
possible.

We therefore, call on all journalists to disregard
this obvious Machiavellian tactics at the 11th
hour, because “no force or army is too strong to
stop a peoples’ will for change.”

Our candidate Lloyd Evans, will be on the ballot
paper come March 31.
“Keep Lloyd Evans Vision Alive” CHANGE WILL COME.

Campaign Manager
