NPP Primaries: Delegates Refuse Bribe After Being Asked To Swear By ‘Antoa’ Deity
Some delegates of the ruling New Patriotic Party, (NPP) in Nsuta Kwamang Beposo constituency of the Ashanti region have rejected alleged bribe money amounting to one thousand Ghana Cedis (GHc. 1,000.00), a mobile phone and GTP cloth.
According to Kasapa FM, the items were given by one of the parliamentary aspirants, Adelaide Yaa Ntim seeking to unseat the current Member of Parliament (MP) for the constituency Kwame Asafo Agyei.
The delegates, after accepting the gifts and transport fare didn’t know that it came with conditions attached as they were forced to swear with the fearful ‘Antoa Nyamaa’ deity.
Delegates who spoke to Ultimate FM’s Isaac Bediako said, they were invited by Adelaide Yaa Agyeiwaa Ntim whom they thought was fair-minded but later suspected she was into juju and hence do not want anything to do with her money.
One of the delegates, Nana Yaw Osei, who also refused the money said he was not ready to swear by the deity, “I am an honest and principled man, nobody can force me to make decisions against my will.”
However, Adelaide Yaa Agyeiwaa Ntim denied forcing the delegates to swear by ‘Antoa Nyamaa’ deity before taking the money, stating that it was just transport fare.
She noted that she is ready to give more to support the other 530 delegates in the constituency should any of the two other candidates give more than what she had already given to the delegates to facilitate her victory.
