The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama has warned Ghanaians against accepting any monetary or material gifts from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 election.
He said Ghanaians should not allow money to influence their vote in the December elections; instead, they should vote with their conscience.
Addressing the Chiefs and People of Frankadua in the Asuogyaman Constituency, Mahama used the example of Assin North, where delegates received money but voted independently.
“They will bring money to influence you to vote for them. Take the money because it belongs to you and disregard any false claim that the money would harm you spiritually if you don’t vote for them,” the former president said.
He advised Frankadua residents to employ a similar strategy in the approaching elections.
Mahama expressed apprehension that the NPP administration will use the money to influence the 2024 election; nonetheless, he advised Ghanaians to accept such presents gracefully and base their voting decisions on the current status of the economy and their living conditions.
