According to Mr. Yammin, NPP is planning to bus their members to the vigil to increase the number of participants
Former deputy Ashanti regional minister, Joseph Yammin has alleged that the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti region is planning to convey people to the celebrity vigil against the power crisis in the country.
The May 16 #DumsorMustStop vigil, championed by three Ghanaian celebrities – Yvonne Nelson, Sarkodie and Lydia Forson – is to put pressure on the John Mahama-led administration to solve the erratic supply of electricity which has lingered on for close to three years.
According to Mr. Yammin, NPP is planning to bus their members to the vigil to increase the number of participants.
“I am not expecting more than 100 people; how many celebrities do we have in this country?
“But you expect a larger crowd and the NPP will like to take advantage of that.
“Yvonne Nelson herself stated that after her interview with the BBC that a leading political figure contacted her and wanted to take advantage of them.
“However, I am expecting that when the dumsor is over, they will plan another vigil to thank the President,” he said on the Ultimate 106.9 FM’s Ultimate Breakfast show.
