Mahama’s ‘Challenger’ Arrested for Fraud

Mr. George Boateng, the Oyarifa Branch Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and a former presidential hopeful of the party has been arrested.

Boateng was arrested by security operatives for allegedly  impersonating the National Security office, and claiming favours from unsuspecting persons.

Sources  at the National Security revealed that the former presidential candidate hopeful was picked up on Sunday afternoon and later handed over to the Airport Police in Accra who are said to be  investigating the matter.

Described as a ‘mad man’ by some leaders of the party who thought his ambition to challenge the sitting president when nominations were open for internal contest within the party,  George Boateng unsuccessfully failed to get the go-ahead to contest Mahama because he failed to receive support from the party.
