Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said debunked all accusations made against President Mahama over the bribery of the Northern Regional Chariman Bugri Naabu of the New Patriotic Party.
Earlier this week, the NPP alleged that Mahama and his sibling had bribed the Northern Regional Chairman of the NPP Daniel Bugri Naabu with two SUVs, and two money payments of GHC 500,000 and GHC 3.3 million.
According to the spokesperson for the NPP flagbearer, Mustapha Hamid, the 'gifts' were meant to coax Mr Naabu into defecting from the NPP and then paint Nana Akufo-Addo as intolerant of the people from the Northern part of country in a scathing attack.
However, reacting to the accusations, the NDC General Secretary stated in an interview on Class FM that Mr Naabu was not worthy of being bribed.
"“…If I have Gh¢10 to pay or to bribe anybody to speak for me, it is not Bugri Naabu that I’ll be wasting that money on. NPP itself knows. And this issue where he cannot even speak for himself shows that he cannot even be speaking for anybody. A person who cannot even speak for himself, will not be able to speak for another person. I think that if you are a person who people would want to buy, then you must demonstrate that you can even speak on matters concerning you," he said.
While the Presidency has not yet made an official comment on the allegations, many including a law practitioner Yaw Oppong have called for his response stating that these are serious claims that need to be addressed.
