-Members of the NDC who want to know what is contained in the Kwesi Botchwey report have to pay $2,000, an NPP man has alleged.
-The Kwesi Botchwey report contains information on why the NDC lost the 2016 elections
-The report has become arguably the most sought after political document in Ghana, after the NDC decided to classify its contents
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is charging members of the party $2,000 to read the Kwesi Botchwey committee report, an aspiring Ashanti Regional New Patriotic Party (NPP) youth organiser has alleged.
According to Dennis Kwakwa, who is also a member of the NPP's communication, although the NDC maintains that the report is classified and will not be released, the party is charging party members $2,000 each to read its content.
To back his claim, Mr Kwakwa alleged on Kumasi-based Nkyira FM that former communications minister, Omane Boamah, wrote to the NDC leadership to secure a copy of the report but was asked to pay $2,000 before he could be given one.
He further claimed that the NDC's General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, and a few of the party's national executives were benefiting from the monetisation of the report.
“It is now [a] source of revenue for NDC general secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiam and [a] few of their executives”, he claimed.
His allegations follow chaos surrounding the Kwesi Botchwey report, which contains information on why the NDC lost the 2016 elections.
While some media houses claim to have copies of the report and have been serialising its content, the NDC have described the reports in the media as fake.
According to the party, the "original" report is safely under lock and key.
