An Associate Professor at the University of Ghana says the newly elected national Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) must be investigated over the buses saga prior to the national delegates conference.
Prof. Ransford Gyampo who is head of European studies at the Political Science Department of the university said the actions of Freddie Blay prior to the elections is clearly vote buying and nothing else.
He said, Freddie Blay actions was wrong, and such initiatives are nothing but rather buy votes from Delegates.
“If Freddie Blay had such good intentions of buying buses for Delegates, he should have done that earlier and not close to the election date. What he did was wrong and needs to be investigate ,” he stressed.
Speaking to Joy News’ Kojo Yankson on Monday, Prof Gyampo argued that, buying votes cannot be accepted in our parts of the world and that politicians should desist from such actions.
His comments come in reaction to the NPP’s Delegates Conference held in the Eastern Regional capital, Koforidua on Saturday to elect new National Executives.
Acting National Chairman, Freddie Blay beat his closest contender , Stephen Ntim end of day to become the substantive Chairman and John Boadu repeated the same feat to become substantive General Secretary.
