The newly-elected flagbearer of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP), Ivor Greenstreet has denied claims that he bribed delegates to win the partyâ€™s presidential primary on Saturday.
Mr Greenstreet polled 1,288 votes out of the 1,992 valid votes cast to beat Samia Nkrumah - daughter of Dr Kwame Nkrumah - who obtained 579 votes.
Madam Nkrumah alleged after the poll that voters had been bribed between GHÂ¢200 and GHÂ¢500 to vote for Mr Greenstreet.
The claim did not sit well with Mr Greenstreet, who described Madam Samiaâ€™s claim as self-delusional.
Speaking on Accra-based Â Joy FM, he said he won the election because he worked tireless, campaigning across constituencies in the country.
â€œThis election was bought, but bought by my service, bought by my loyalty, bought by my commitment , bought by the fact that they knew that I am the best-placed person to speak for the party.They haveÂ heard me speak on national platforms. They believe I speak eloquently. They believe that I speak the true values of the party,â€ he said.
Mr Greenstreet added that the delegates believed that he was the one who could unify the party and bring all factions together.
â€œThe rank and file do not take decisions on who to vote for by media campaigns in Accra,â€ he added.
