In a press conference held in Accra on Tuesday, the NPP presented documents which the party said proved that Ibrahim Mahama, the president's brother, gave Bugri Naabu GHC500,000 cash and a brand new Mistubishi V6 vehicle to portray Akufo-Addo as someone who hates Northerners.

Mustapha Hamid, the spokesperson to Nana Akufo-Addo, who addressed the press conference said President Mahama and his team had "not relented in their evil ways and means to use our own people to work against the NPP.”

He said Ibrahim Mahama and one Mohammed Awal met Bugri Naabu on Friday, November 25, and offered to pay him GHC3.3 million if he could paint Akufo-Addo "as a rabid anti-northern person who could never be trusted to advance the people of the north".

"He was supposed to say that Akufo-Addo was knocking the head of one northerner against the other," Hamid said.

He claimed Ibrahim Mahama gave Bugri Naabu GHC500,000 on the spot, which the NPP chairman deposited the next day at the Abossey Okai branch of Prudential Bank.
