The campaign team of Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia has denied claims which suggest that an amount of $800 million was offered to a fellow contender in the NPP flagbearership race, Kennedy Agyapong, to step down from the race.
It noted that the allegation was a rehash of a similar one made by Mr Agyapong about a month ago, claiming without proof that he was offered money to step down and be a running mate to Dr. Bawumia.
A statement signed by the Spokesperson for the Bawumia team, Gideon Boako, noted that “the Vice President has never instructed anybody to meet with Kennedy Agyapong, or his assigns to negotiate anything in respect of this contest.”
He added that the “Vice President and his team consider this $800 million claim as absolutely ridiculous, and it shows a gross disregard for the intelligence of Ghanaians.”
To this end, the statement urged the public to disregard such outrageous lies directed at the Bawumia Campaign because “Dr. Bawumia is, and has always been confident that by the Grace of God, he will defeat Hon. Kennedy Agyapong quite well on November 4th and has never entertained any wish for him to step down from the contest.”
Describing the Vice-President as a man noted for his modesty, Dr Boako pointed out that Dr. Bawumia remains committed to his lifelong values of serving people with his intellect.
