Former Deputy Northern regional minister, Mohammed Amin Anta was given $5000 to declare support for two-time NPP Presidential hopeful, Nana Akufo-Addo, in the party’s upcoming presidential primaries, the Alan camp has alleged.
According to the spokesperson for Alan Kyerematen - a contender for the slot - Nana Ohene Ntow, evidence available to him confirms his suspicions over the sudden declaration of support for the former foreign affairs minister by the former Tamale MCE.
“I am surprised that people are rather turning around accusing Alan of vote-buying. Why are people not talking about instance where people have confessed to receiving 5000 dollars to declare support for Akufo-Addo.
“Amin Anta said on a tape that he was given 5000 dollars to support Nana Addo and it's public,” the former General Secretary of the main opposition party told Radio XYZ, Tuesday.
Anta who was a staunch supporter of Kyerematen’s presidential bid has in a volt face declared support for his main contender, Nana Akufo-Addo ahead of Saturday's elections.
But Ohene Ntow says the wave of public declaration of support for Akufo-Addo does not intimidate the former trades minister.
“We know our message has sunk in really deep and we are confident of the outcome.”
