Government Communications Team Member in the Greater Accra Region has revealed that the impending National Delegates Conference of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) which will elect its national executives will be won by who can pay money to delegates and not on competences.
Nathaniel Tetteh Bossah who contested the Greater Accra Regional Organizer position of the NPP, but lost explained that, during their elections, some candidates were seen openly sharing monies and other property to delegates to induce them in the voting and they won at the end of the election.
The NPP man noted that this will be the order of the day in the impending Conference in Koforidua.
Mr. Tetteh Bossah made the revelation in an interview with Prime News Ghana on Monday, July 2, 2018, ahead of the conference scheduled for Friday July 6, to Sunday July 8, 2018, in the Eastern Regional capital, Koforidua.
He said “our regional elections were not about what you have done or what you could do or your message to the delegates...it was about what you could pay to delegates on that day of the election”.
“Some people paid as much as GHS500 to each delegate and our national delegates’ conference will also be the same. They will pay money to win power”, he added.
He said “NPP elections is not about your personality, it is not about what you have done before, it is not about what you can do, it is base on what you can pay”.
Mr. Tetteh Bossah said “people will take positions not because of what they can do, but what they can pay, because during our election, there was articulated truck full of TV and table top fridges and they were sharing to delegates”.
“People shared fridges...people shared TV and that tells you how elections in NPP has become and it is very bad”, he explained.
