The Campaign Operations Director for the Allan Kyerematen camp, Hopeson Adorye has alleged that the Chief Staff was at the New Patriotic Party Headquarters sharing money with delegates.
Speaking to journalists at the party’s headquarters on Saturday, August 26, 2023, the outspoken Alan’s Operations Director stated that people voted in certain directions because they do not want to lose their jobs.
“Somebody doesn’t want to lose his job, so do you want him to go and vote in a certain direction? So that he can lose his or her job? I am saying that people who have been in the government for these years, even old ladies still want to continue. So do you think they will vote in a certain direction?
“What are you talking about? An old lady wants to be a Vice President, how much more the young ones? The person engaging in indiscipline here, you didn’t tell them anything, the rules were clear that when you come and do nothing, but the Chief of Staff was here giving money to people. We are not afraid to say it,” Mr. Adorye reiterated.
