Spokesperson of the Alan Kyerematen Campaign Team Yaw Buaben Asamoa has challenged Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to show any contributions he has made to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) since he joined.
“He came into the party without contributing a pesewa to the formation of the party [and] that’s significant because it mattered that in the beginning, men were there to contribute.”
The former Adentan Member of Parliament (MP) was responding to recent claims by the Vice President that when it mattered most, those who are claiming it is their time were nowhere to be found.
Addressing delegates at the start of his Ashanti Region tour on Thursday, July 6, Dr Bawumia said he was the man to be called upon to mount the dock when the NPP needed someone for the election petition case after the contested 2012 elections.
But Mr Buaben Asamoa said the contributions to the NPP started way before 2013.
“When it mattered most was when the party was created,” he told TV3‘s Christian Yalley on the sidelines of Mr Kyerematen’s final Greater Accra Region public durbar on Friday, July 7.
“When it mattered most was when we were coming out of military rule and we had to confront a military, authoritarian regime under President Rawlings, then Chairman Rawlings.
“When it mattered was when we needed men to put their monies together to put this party together and to grow this party.
“The Vice President came into this party without contributing a pesewa to the processes of this party and I challenge him to show a receipt, saying that he contributed anything to this party before he was brought in.”
