Former President John Agyekum Kufuor alleges, the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has resorted to vote buying in order to remain in power.
He has therefore asked Ghanaians not to allow themselves to be influenced with money ahead of the December 7 elections.
“They are just spending money anyhow. Don’t be influenced with money. Even if you give them 10 more years in addition to the 23 years they have spent in government, they will still fail the country,” he said.
Ex-President Kufuor said the ruling NDC has failed to make the lives of Ghanaians better and has resorted to buying votes to avoid defeat.
Worshiping at the Kumasi Central Mosque with the NPP’s vice presidential candidate, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, ex-President Kufuor said: “NDC is claiming credit for schools they didn’t build. Also, roads that they didn’t build, they said they were constructed during their tenure and same applies to hospitals among others.”
He said: “We want someone to serve the nation. When the NPP was in power, banks were chasing you with loans. The NDC is now managing the country’s finance without accounting for a penny. They are giving chiefs four-wheel drives and giving motorbikes to young men in return for their votes.”
