According to his lawyers, Dr Jones-Mensah is a validly registered member of the NDC at VALCO FLAT BASE I branch of the Ashaiman Constituency since 2018. He has also dissociated himself from the wrongful insertion of his name in the Keta Constituency register. The lawyers maintained that their client has not violated any party laws and urged the vetting committee to dismiss the allegations.

The Functional Executive Committee of NDC deferred its decision on his eligibility for further probe after a petition was filed against him challenging his eligibility due to alleged membership registration irregularities.

However, Concerned National NDC branch executives of Keta have sent strong warnings to some aspirants who are allegedly spreading false rumours that Dr Jones-Mensah does not qualify to contest for the upcoming primaries. They noted that their candidate has been vetted by the vetting committee and must be allowed to campaign towards the primaries without any interference.

Dr Jones-Mensah is set to contest in the May 13th election with Kwame Dzidzorli Gakpe, the incumbent MP, Madam Enyonam Apetorgbor, Dr Senanu Kwasi Djokoto and Mr Paul Mensah Voegborlo.

It remains to be seen whether the allegations will affect Dr Jones-Mensah’s chances of winning the NDC primaries in Keta constituency.
