NPP fingers Mahama in Gh¢500k bribery allegation

Mustapha Hamid, the spokesperson of the Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo has alleged President John Mahama and his brother Ibrahim Mahama have attempted bribing the Northern Regional Chairman of the NPP.

According to Mr. Hamid, the president and his sibling in October this year approached Daniel Bugri Naabu with two SUVs, GHS3.3 million, GHS500,000 and other goodies so that he would ditch the NPP and to allege its flag bearer is tribalistic and intolerant to people from the Northern extraction.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday at the headquarters of the NPP in Accra, Mr. Hamid said the bribe was meant to inveigle the Northern regional chairman of the party to resign from the party and launch tribal attacks on it.

“He was supposed to resign from the NPP, damage Akufo-Addo as an anti-Northern person, a rabid hater of Northerners and in turn, they were going to give him: a brand new V6 Mitsubishi vehicle, [and] a brand new V8 Land Cruiser, GHS3.3m.

“Bugri Naabu is owed by government to the tune of GHS247,000 from road contracts that he has done which government has not been paying for several years. They promised to pay that money instantly and then on the spot, they brought him GHS500,000 cash in GHS50 notes. Ibrahim Mahama dropped it right in front of him [Bugri Naabu],” alleged Mr. Hamid.

He continued: “It’s terribly sad. This country is in serious trouble, we need to rescue this country from serious trouble. The presidency has been so depraved, so muddied, so dirty that I tell you in all sincerity as a Ghanaian that I feel terribly sad as a Ghanaian.

“And then they gave the money to Bugri Naabu and he took the money and left, it was a Friday, 28th of October 2016, so the very next day was a Saturday and Bugri Naabu found one Prudential Bank that he knew would be opened at that time; that Abossey Okai branch of Prudential Bank and then he went and deposited the money in his account. His account number is 0090985590013, account name is Daniel Bugri Naabu.”
