A supporter of Mahamudu Bawumia’s flagbearership campaign, Kwabena Senkyire, has reaffirmed demands for non-propagandistic, clean campaigning.
Ineffective assaults amongst New Patriotic Party (NPP) members ahead of the November 4 presidential primaries, according to the former Ashanti Regional National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) leader, would only help the opposition.
In an interview with Okay FM on October 20, Senkyire responded to accusations made against Samira Bawumia, the second lady, by a member of the Kennedy Agyapong campaign.
Ken’s brother Ralph Agyapong said that Samira’s remarks about the need to hold onto power and the necessity for delegates to reject bitter and furious candidates were intended at him.
He said that these remarks were the result of the Second Lady’s excellent life, which included her ability to purchase bags that cost thousands of dollars in the United States, starting in 2017.
In repelling the attack on Samira, Senkyire stated: “Have you seen a First or Second Lady who goes around holding a bag? It hasn’t happened before, has it? Have you seen a president holding his own bag before? It doesn’t happen so let’s stop the propaganda.
“This is an internal fight because if we have to say everything, there would be issues… Hajia Samira said something and I would like to repeat it, ‘that if you give power to a person, be very careful’,” he stressed.
He dismissed the claim that Samira was referring to Kennedy in the comments that included that if a certain candidate is pushing the party into opposition, it is likely because himself, his wife and kids are financially secured.
