- NPP national executive aspirants allegedly doling out huge amounts of cash to delegates of the party ahead of congress
- Blay and Ntim give GHc10 and GHc50 notes as 'bribe' to delegates to win votes
Aspirants for the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) National Chairmanship position, Stephen Ntim and Freddie Blay have allegedly set aside bundles of GHc10 and GHc50 notes to finance their campaigns.
Photos of the GHc10 and GHc50 cash notes first appeared on social media, but the report has since been trending on various platforms.
Mr. Ntim is contending for the NPP National Chairmanship against Freddy Blay, in what has been labeled as one of the keenest races in recent years.
Ahead of the polls, both candidates have been accusing each other of foul tactics in a bid to sway voters.
Earlier this week, Mr. Ntim accused Mr. Blay of “buying votes” when the latter purchase 275 mini buses for all constituencies as part of his campaign.
“If you are really in love with your party or any organization that you belong to, you don’t wait till a situation arises where you need favour from the people before you say I’m giving you a bus. If you do that, it amounts to vote-buying. Why is it that during the 2016 campaign he didn’t bring 275 buses, but wait for the time when you say ‘vote for me and get these buses’. That amounts to vote-buying,” Mr. Ntim said.
“Please accept anything that is offered to you, but do not allow those considerations to influence your decision to vote for Ntim.”
However, the latest reports trending on social media indicates that Mr. Ntim and Freddie Blay are doling out huge amounts of cash to delegates of the party ahead of the Congress slated for Saturday at Koforidua. The two top candidates are allegedly offering GHc 10 and GHc50 notes to delegates.
It is unknown how true these reports are but such is the intense nature of the upcoming elections.
The NPP will go to the polls over the weekend to elect its new national executives.
The polls will come off at Koforidua in the Eastern Region.
