Former Deputy Communications minister during the erstwhile John Mahama administration, Victoria Lakshmi Hamah has blamed her defeat in the parliamentary primary election on her unwillingness to bribe delegates on Election Day.
In a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Victoria Hamah affirms that she was rejected by delegates because she “vowed never to use money to rob the people of their dignity.”
This is the second time she has been rejected by delegates during the parliamentary primary to represent the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) after similar failed attempt in 2015.
“I campaigned on a message hoping to inspire delegates to awaken in them a higher consciousness towards transformational change. Elections in Ghana is so easy. Just make sure you are the highest bidder on the Election Day and you will surely win,” she wrote.
Social media commentators have gone agog with different comments on her post
