Sammy Gyamfi was certain that most of the aspirants bribed delegates to influence their votes.
“Huge amounts of money; in some cases 6,000 cedis per delegate, 5,000 cedis per delegate, 4,000 cedis per delegate and so on, exchanged hands…while material gifts such as refrigerators, flat-screen televisions, motorbikes, tricycles and other valuables were distributed to bribe and induced party delegates,” he alleged.
According to him, these actions by the aspirants spoke volumes of the endemic corruption and thievery that has engulfed the Akufo-Addo government.
