A defeated New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary aspirant in the New Juaben South constituency in the Eastern region has chased delegates for his money.

Michael Kofi Okyere-Baafi, who resigned his position as the constituency vice chairman to contest incumbent Dr. Mark Assibey-Yeboah lost over the weekend in the NPP primaries.

The aspirant in a video was seen in a vehicle demanding for his money from the delegates he claim did not vote for him.

Dr. Mark Assibey-Yeboah polled 295 out of 316 votes cast defeating Michael Kofi Okyere-Baafi.

There were some allegations that the cause of some party big wigs who failed to make it at the primaries was because delegates were influenced by money from some aspirants.

Meanwhile some unhappy parliamentary aspirants have declared to contest the 2016 general elections independent.

Dr. Dickson Adomako Kissi, who lost to incumbent Shirley Ayorkor Botchway in the Anyaa Sowutoum constituency, has hinted at contesting the seat as an independent candidate.

Dr. Adomako Kissi who lost by just 41 votes fears, the NPP will lose the seat to the NDC under the watch of Shirley Ayorkor Botchway, hence his decision.

An aspirant in the Afigya Sekyere East primary, Lt Col. Ababio Serebour, has also declared to contest independenpendent. He argued that truth was lost in the process.

“I have declared to go independent and there is no turning back,” he told the media after the primary in the constituency.

Former General Secretary of the opposition New Patriotic Party, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie who joined the fray, launched a scathing attack on delegates who allowed their decisions to be influenced with money.

According to him, several candidates who were elected to represent the party in the 2016 elections are likely to lose their seats due to their lack of experience.

Several of the delegates were influenced by money,” Sir John said adding “this could be a problem for the party”.
