Assin North by-election: NDC has no campaign message, resorts to falsehoods – Nana Boakye

The National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye, has accused the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of spreading falsehoods of vote buying against the ruling party ahead of the Assin North parliamentary by-election.

He explained that the NDC are doing that because they have realised that they are heading for defeat in the election.

The deputy communications Officer of the NDC, Malik Basintale had accused the NPP of engaging in vote-buying and alleged that he possessed video and picture evidence of Nana Boakye distributing goods to constituents from a vehicle.

However, Nana Boakye categorically dismissed the accusations and referred to them as baseless lies.
He said the NDC have no productive campaign message and they are only tarnishing the image of the NPP for political gain.

Defeat scare
He stated that the NDC are spreading falsehoods due to their realisation that they were likely to lose the election.
“Sometimes it’s very difficult to respond to some of these blatant lies. First of all, we have not shared any money.

It is pure fabrication and falsehood for the NDC to come and say that the NPP is spraying cash. If their campaign is not confused, why the accusations?

“Our National Chairman and General Secretary are in the rains as I speak, and they have not been spraying any cash, not at all. They [NDC] are rather sharing cutlasses and things, sometimes when they are doing things, they think that somebody is going to say negative things about them, they rather turn round and accuse us,” Henry Nana Boakye clarified.

He clarified that their candidate, Charles Opoku, owns a charity foundation where he distributes items periodically to the people of Assin North and thus the vehicle captured in the video is one of his humanitarian works.

Position remarks
Nana Blakey said the NPP candidate has received accolades and lots of positive remarks about his philanthropic works, which is why he is so popular. He has a foundation that distributes items and he has done this since 2012.

“As I speak, he has been able to renew the NHIS cards of some people, and new registration of close to about 9,000 people. When Assin North had its own district assembly, he started operating from his own house, free of charge. He has been distributing fertilizers for years, he gives soft loans to the people as well. I can confidently say it is not government funds but our candidate,” he explained.
