Aspiring National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay, has described as unintelligent, claims that he is buying votes ahead of a crucial election.
According to him, the $11million buses for the 275 constituencies of the party are not enough to buy delegates voting on Saturday July 7, 2018.
The acting National Chairman has come under strict scrutiny following the arrival of the buses he has personally purchased for constituencies just days to the crucial national delegates congress.
Mr. Blay who is vying for the National Chairmanship position has been accused of isih the move to buy delegtes’ votes.
His opponent, Stephen Ntim, has said the timing of the arrival of the buses is enough to conclude that it is a vote buying ploy.
The four-time failed NPP National Chair aspirant argues that if Freddie Blay really loved the party, he would not have waited for elections to bring in the buses.
But in a rebuttal on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem Thursday, Blay expressed shock at how his philanthropic gesture is being twisted for partisan politics.
According to him, he expected applauds and not criticisms for his job-creation initiative.
The NPP National Chairman aspirant noted that the buses become the property of the constituencies after the state-owned transport company STC operates and transfers them.
The plan, he stated, would be to allow STC to continue using the buses and pay even more money to the constituencies after the debt has been defrayed.
His only aim for buying the buses for the constituencies, Mr. Blay explained, is for it to serve as a solution to the problem of fundraising for political operations.
