THE NEW Patriotic Party (NPP) has debunked reports that the bribing of delegates by aspirants has caused the delay of today’s party elections.
Originally, the 2022 NPP annual Delegates Conference, taking place at the Accra Sports Stadium, was to start at 10am, today (Saturday).
But as at 1:40pm, which is almost 4 hours late, the important party programme has not started yet. Delegates are now even taking their seats at the venue.
This has given room for people to speculate that perhaps the aspirants are bribing the delegates with cash in their hotels, causing the undue delay.
But in sharp rebuttal, Henry Kwabena Kokofu, a leading member of the NPP, has stated emphatically that the bribery allegations are false.
He said to newsmen that delegates traveling from all over the country to Accra has caused the delay of the programme “so treat the bribery allegations with the contempt it deserves”.
The NPP is electing its new national executives to steer the affairs of the party for the next four years in Accra today.
