The son of the Speaker of Parliament, Michael Aaron Oquaye Jnr and the Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, Adjoa Sarfo have been fingered in a vote buying exposé released by anti-corruption group, Corruption Watch in connection with the recent New Patriotic Party (NPP) primaries.
According to the allegations leveled against Hon. Adwoa Sarfo claim the MP who doubles as the minister in charge of procurement gave Ghc 3,000 and a GLICO life insurance package worth Ghc 10,000 to about 500 delegates.
According Corruption Watch, Adwoa Sarfo’s GLICO insurance packages took effect three days to the elections and are expected to expire in 2021.
Ghana’s High Commissioner to India wasn’t left out of the exposé. Mr Aaron Michael Oquaye Jnr was also alleged to have paid about 500 delegates an amount of Ghc 3,000 and a Nasco Flat Screen television set. He also gave the delegate a set of Indian-made cloth each.
Responding to the allegations, Mike Oquaye Jnr said he has resolved to put everything that happened during the elections behind him since the elections are over. Adwoa Sarfo has however not responded to the allegations.
The June NPP primaries has been fraught with allegations of vote buying and corruption.
