I Got 3 Votes After Campaigning for Two Years – Defeated A/R NPP Chairman Aspirant



A Chairmanship candidate in the recently-held NPP Executives Election is perplexed over his poor showing at the polls.

He garnered only three votes at the polls after he campaigned for two years.

Oheneba Adum Bawuah has alleged that some candidates were allowed to drive cars stashed with money into the venue used for the election, so they can distribute to delegates to influence their votes.

He says the money distributed enticed even his auntie who was a delegate, to vote against him.

Speaking to Nhyira FM’s Kwadwo Jantuah on ‘Kuro Yi Mu Nsem‘ show, Oheneba Bawuah said he has petitioned the National Executive Council of the NPP to form a committee of enquiry to probe the election process.

He wants the election committee to also apologize for not following the rules of the election.

“I used two years to campaign and got three votes, even my auntie didn’t vote for me because they influenced them to the point that they didn’t have any choice.

“The money was too big to vote for anybody.

“I had cameras inside, so I have evidence [of vote buying] so I don’t want to drag this issue.

They should be silent and form a committee and apologize to the system to avoid repetition at the national level.

“The election committee should come out and apologize for not following the rules,” he stressed.

Oheneba Bawuah is advocating for an all-inclusive vote to elect party executives instead of delegates.

This, according to him, should be applicable to all parties in the country and should also be backed by the constitution.

“I am starting an advocacy for ‘one man one vote’ instead of delegates.

If the country wants a future, it should be ‘one man one vote’ and that’s what the revolution will be championing for.

“All the parties have the same problem, so it is not limited to the NPP alone.

“Delegates are not the problem, it is the Constitution,” he emphasized.
