"They are sharing money, the voting is for the highest bidder" -Dr. Amoako Baah reveals

Dr. Amoako Baah, a political scientist at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has made some powerful revelations about the ongoing Delegates Conference and its ramifications for the country's democracy. The renowned lecturer once contested for the chairmanship position of the New Patriotic Party and has seen it all when it comes to elections.

Even though he didn't win, the politician has some words of caution and said that the ongoing delegates' conference is a 'cocoa season' and most of the delegates are expecting huge monies from aspirants because this is their opportunity to make more cash.

Responding to a phone call by Onua TV on the topic of vote buying, Dr. Amoako Baah posited that the current happening especially within the NPP Party is terrible. He continued by saying that it shall hurt the party in December 2024 and this phenomenon is simply to inform delegates that don't come if you don't have money.

Kofi Aduanaba Asante asks what transpired during his time when he contested and replied that he didn't have much to give that's why they never voted for him. According to him, such acts of sharing money undermine the country’s constitutional democracy and unfortunately, it has come to stay.

"The vote is for the highest bidder and they are selling it because they know after winning you won't mind them that's why they are demanding money. Politics is now business. You can't fix it," he concluded.
