According to information reportedly acquired around the country from Depite Media reporters during the present NPP Presidential Primaries, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is distributing Ghc 400 as transportation and his primary rival, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, is likewise doling out Ghc 300 to each delegate.
The other candidates, former Agriculture Minister Owusu Afriyie-Akoto and Francis Adai-Nimoh, have not been documented as having distributed any funds to delegates.
Other sources, however, claim that the party is paying out Ghc400 in some cases and Ghc50 to delegates for lunch and transportation. According to reports from the Dome/Kwabenya constituency.
According to reports, in one of the polling sites in the Central Region, party leaders only gave delegates Ghc200 instead of Ghc300 from Kennedy Agyapong, and they refused to vote until they received the entire package planned for them.
In all, 203, 439 delegates will vote around the country to select a new party flagbearer ahead of the 2024 election.
Sir Collins, a New Patriotic Party (NPP) delegate, voiced deep displeasure and disappointment with Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and his staff. This displeasure originates from the supposed promise of a ‘paltry’ GH400 to the delegates by Collins.
Collins stated his great discontent with Dr. Bawumia, who hopes to be the party’s flagbearer, offering delegates a mere GH400 apiece in an interview with GHOne TV, calling it an insult. Collins questioned why another challenger, Kennedy Agyapong, who apparently has less backing from government appointees and the party’s rank and file, gave GH300.
Collins was furious, claiming that the GH100 discrepancy between Bawumia and Agyapong’s proposals was unreasonable, and that the vice president should have offered much more.
