The National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, has denied pocketing money meant for the party's polling station officials.

He said "somebody" was selected by the campaign team to distribute a budget of 11.6 million Ghana cedis to the various polling stations.

Mr Adam made the statement following a publication in a pro-NDC newspaper, The Herald, that some NDC national executives were given money to support party grassroots but kept it and that the former president, John Mahama, is ready to mention the names of such culprits.

"Let me state on record that the party executives did not handle agent money. The distribution of monies meant for agents was done by somebody that was selected by the system and it was delivered directly to the regions," he said in an interview with Accra-based Radio Gold.

"I don’t know who was responsible for receiving those monies so if anybody published that somebody at FEC received monies for agents and he or she did not deliver; it cannot be true."

According to him, “The training programs; training of the agents and selection of the agents among others was handled by the election directorate and funding for the training and allowances did pass through the national executives which are different from the election day agents payment.”
