NPP primaries: There’s no evidence of vote-buying in Bantama – Awuku

 

 

The National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Sammi Awuku has dismissed reports of vote-buying in the Bantama primaries of the party.

The incumbent Member of Parliament for Bantama in the Ashanti region Daniel Okyem Aboagye has accused his competitor Deputy Chief of Staff Francis Asenso-Boakye of using money to induce delegates. Mr. Asenso-Boakye has denied the accusation in a statement issued Thursday.

Speaking to Starr News on the development, Mr Awuku said the party has not been given any credible evidence of vote-buying.

“There is no evidence of vote-buying. Nobody has brought anything of evidential value to us. People just make claims and such things can’t be proven,” he told Naa Borle Bortey on the campaign trail.

Meanwhile, the Asenso Boakye camp is accusing the incumbent MP  of working with elements within the opposition NDC after he published a book containing his achievement.

The MP calls the achievement document – The Blue Book.

The book details a number of interventions including provision of 35 Mazda cars, 15 motorbikes, help for the aged and the needy in Bantama, townhall meetings as well as capital projects undertaken under his watch.
