Incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale Central in the Northern Region, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini has denied claims by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary candidate for the area, Dr. Barhama Ibrahim Anyass that, he [Fuseini] had been bribing Electoral Commission officers in the ongoing limited voter registration exercise.
According to the NPP candidate, Alhaji Fuseini was inducing the EC officers to skew the limited voter registration exercise in his favour.
He alleged that some National Democratic Congress (NDC) executives in the Tamale central constituency physically handed over envelopes containing money to EC officers at some of the registration centres he visited Â citing the Manhaliya and the Zogbeli primary registration centres as where the envelopes allegedly exchanged hands.
But speaking on Citi FM, Alhaji Fuseini who is also the Minister for Roads and Highways, Â said â€œIâ€™m not aware of any attempt by constituency executives to bribe EC officers in this registration exercise. I have not attempted to influence electoral officers in the exercise of their function as registration officers. I have been engaged in elections for some time now and I know how to conduct myself and I do follow the laws and ensure that everything is done according to the specifications of the law.â€
â€œI have a propensity to throw all kinds of mud against me because they think that because by throwing a lot of mud, some will stick. This is not true. People will tell you that if anybody at all will do that it is certainly not Inusah Fuseini", he asserted.
