Francis Addai-Nimoh, a presidential candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has declared that he has never purchased for a delegate’s vote.
Rather, he stated that all he had to offer delegates and the Ghanaian people was peace, unity, and prosperity.
Francis Addai-Nimoh, a former Member of Parliament (MP) for Mampong Constituency, made the remarks after voting at the NPP headquarters in Asylum Down, Accra.
His remarks were in reaction to a media inquiry concerning accusations that delegates in Berekum had been given GHC1,000 to vote for him.
“To vote for Me? I’m sure that is untrue. It is false. I have never given any money. Silver and gold have I none, but what I have is to give peace, unity and prosperity,” he said.
Francis Addai-Nimoh is one of four candidates running for the presidency of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 general election.
The other three candidates are Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, MP for Assin Central, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, former Minister of Food and Agriculture, and Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia.
In all, 420 delegates are scheduled to vote at the party’s headquarters in Accra.
So far, around 331 people have voted. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, a fellow flagbearer contender; Senior Presidential Advisor, Yaw Osafo-Maafo; and Former National Chairman of the NPP, Freddie Blay are among those who have expressed interest.
