Information allegedly gathered across the country from Depite Media reporters in the ongoing NPP Presidential Primaries indicates that Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is sharing Ghc 400 as transportation and his main contender, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong is also dolling out Ghc 300 to each delegate.
The remaining aspirants, former Agric Minister, Owusu Afriyie-Akoto and Francis Adai-Nimoh have so far not been recorded to be sharing any monies to delegates.
However, other reports also alleged that the party is giving out Ghc400 in some instance and Ghc 50 to delegates for lunch and transportation. As reported from the Dome/Kwabenya constituency.
At one of the polling stations in the Central Region, reports indicated that party executives only gave delegates Ghc200 instead of Ghc 300 from Kennedy Agyapong which they refused to vote until they got the full package earmarked for them.
In all 203, 439 delegates will be casting their votes across the country to elect a new flagbearer for the party ahead of the 2024 election.
A New Patriotic Party (NPP) delegate, who introduced himself as Sir Collins, has expressed intense frustration and disappointment in Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and his team. This dissatisfaction stems from the alleged offer of what Collins described as a ‘paltry’ GH¢400 to the delegates.
In an interview with GHOne TV, Collins expressed his strong dissatisfaction, describing it as an insult, that Dr. Bawumia, who aspires to be the party’s flagbearer, offered delegates a meager GH¢400 each. Collins pointed out the disparity in resources and support, questioning why another contender, Kennedy Agyapong, who reportedly has less support from government appointees and the party’s rank and file, offered GH¢300.
A livid Collins argued that the GH¢100 difference between Bawumia and Agyapong’s offers is unacceptable, and the vice president should have offered a significantly higher amount.
