The Ashanti Regional Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dennis Kwakwa has alleged that members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) communication team took money to spend in Kumasi under the guise of a press conference and a demonstration exercise.
According to the NPP man, the NDC swindled the former President to part with huge monies for the aforementioned reasons but rather decided to enjoy themselves in the Kumasi Metropolis.
He alleged that part of the money was used by the team to attend the Ashanti Regional Communications Director of the NDC’s wedding and to tour the Ashanti Region to frolic.
Mr Kwakwa alleged that the kind of money the NDC guys displayed at Abass Nurudeen’s wedding betrayed them as people in opposition.
“When the NDC and its allied parties said they were coming to hold a press conference and demonstrate against the ECs decision to compile a new voter register I laughed because they had convinced President Mahama and gotten money to show off in the Ashanti Region where they toured sites of recreation just to squander money they had not toiled for”, Mr Kwakwa claimed.
The youthful NPP leader said since last Friday members of the NDC had been going on excursion at sites where the Akufo-Addo government was carrying out projects.
He noted that the NDC team had been surprised that the NPP was continuing some of the projects President Mahama started in office.
He said projects such as the Military Hospital at Afari was progressing steadily.
Others such as the expansion of the Kumasi Airport and the Sawua government hospital was also progressing steadily.
Mr Kwakwa said the NPP was not worried about the NDCs decision to go on demonstration or to oppose the EC on its intended purpose of compiling a new register.
He noted that the EC had a clear mandate to do what it has purposed to do for the people of Ghana.
The NPP he observed was ready to go into the 2020 elections with the register the EC and the parties will determine was credible.
Mr Kwakwa opined that the NPP was putting its house in order to be ready for both the parliamentary and presidential elections in 2020.
“We in the NPP are convinced to get four more years from the people of Ghana and what we are doing now is to put our house in order so that when our mandate is renewed we would carry on with the great work we have been doing since 2017”, Mr Kwakwa posited confidently.
