Bawumia paid $5,000, GHC100k to delegates for votes – NPP top guru alleges  

Hopeson Adorye, a member of the campaign team of former Trade Minister, Mr. Alan Kojo Kyerematen has alleged that Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia paid huge sums of monies to induce delegates to vote for him.

Mr. Hopeson Adorye alleges that some of the monies distributed by Dr. Bawumia were in foreign currencies. He adds that US$5,000 and GHC 100,000 were given to the delegates in exchange for votes.

Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia after the close of polls garnered 629 votes beating all his contenders in the super delegates conference.

His closest contender, Kennedy Agyapong managed 132 votes with Alan Kojo Kyerematen placing third with 95 votes.

Mr. Hopeson Adorye believes if not for the monies distributed, Mr. Alan Kyerematen would have pulled surprises.

“In this election, money played a role, money, money. Money played a role, we are unafraid in making these claims. You could give someone US$5,000, what are you talking about?

“We also shared money,” he admitted when pressed by journalists “but whose was bigger? How can you give one person 100,000 cedis to go and vote?” he alleged further.

He has since been summoned by the high hierarchy of the party to provide explanation for his utterances.
