The aspirant, Jim Morti?s disqualification was grounded on petitions against him on criminality, fraud issues, forging of educational certificates among others.
Appearing before a crack team of committee members including chairman of the vetting committee, Hon Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, Head of NDC?s International relations, Hon Kofi Attor, Deputy National Organizer of the NDC, Hon Joshua Akamba, the aspirant, Jim Morti was unable to defend all the information stated in his Curriculum Vitae [CV].
Jim Morti stated to have obtained a medical certificate in 2013 from Mish Aviation Flying school, a claim that he could not establish as he had the committee members pointing out to him the school wasn?t in existence as of the time he claimed to have obtained the certificate.
The aspirant who has not part taken in the obligatory National Service did not have any information provided on his CV on his Secondary education after Middle School Leaving Certificate [MSLC]examination, intimating to the committee he entered Secondary school as a matured student just as Makerere University in Uganda.
Jim Morti had difficulty providing the year he entered the university, program admitted for, time of completion and class gotten. There were huge discrepancies in the ages he stated as entering and completing basic school.
He claimed he was a Thursday born and had Yao as his middle name and born on October 10, 1965, a day which falls on a Sunday. He had on his nomination forms stated Greater Accra as his place of birth but the town Klikor as his place of birth on his CV.
Jim Morti?s claim of being a registered member of the NDC in 2001 was disputed by the constituency executives since there was no record to that effect, donations both in cash and kind he claimed to have made to the constituency were not known to anybody including executives.
The aspirant had a herculean task dealing with some other issues brought before the committee in the form of petition bordering on criminality, one of which has to do with failure to honor a Ten Thousand Ghana [GH10,000] owed to Samuel Owusu of BVBA BOSKOUTER GHANA LTD for rent of an apartment in Adjiringanor, Accra.
Another had to do with his serious involvement with INTERPOL over a car he claimed rented in Ghana and was declared stolen until found in Togo.
Jim Morti?s name as well came up as one of the three persons behind a company by name Precious Stones Resources Ltd against whom a petition from an American businessman,Subhash Neuir was submitted to then sitting President, John Kufour for fraud.
According to a Ghana News Agency [GNA] report, Jim Morti, Francis Asante alias Nana Yaw and Joseph KwesiAgbetoh have refused to ship 100kg of gold bars to Nueir in the US as negotiated after he[Nueir] had paid $31,325 to the three men through a Standard Chartered Bank at Osu on December 17, 2002.
