Mahama indeed attempted bribing me - Bugri speaks

“It is true. I think they’ve shown you the car, I believe they didn’t just call the press conference, so, there’s no doubt about that, but you can call later. Thank you,” Naabu said.

“It is true. I think they’ve shown you the car, I believe they didn’t just call the press conference, so, there’s no doubt about that, but you can call later. Thank you,” Naabu told Accra-based Atinka FM on Wednesday, 30 November.

Sheik Mustapha Hamid, the spokesperson of the Nana Addo alleged at a press conference on Tuesday that Ibrahim Mahama offered Bugri an amount of 500,000 Ghana cedis and a V8 vehicle to ensure that Nana Addo is tagged as anti-Northern.

“The president’s brother led the discussion. He said Bugri was supposed to resign from the NPP, and damage Akufo-Addo beyond electability. According to the president, Bugri should paint Akufo-Addo as an anti-Northern person who could never be trusted to advance the course of the people of the North. He was supposed to tell the world that it was Nana Akufo-Addo who got him to turn against Afoko and that he was now wiser...Bugri was supposed to say Akufo-Addo was running a one-man show in the NPP. He was supposed to label Akufo-Addo as a dictator,” Mustapha added.

But the governing National Democratic Congress has denied the allegations.

Speaking to Pulse.com.gh, Koku Anyidoho,Deputy General Secretary of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), said the police must arrest the Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu for indicating that he has accepted a bribe.

“Certainly, the NDC has not bribed Bugri Naabu. There is no evidence to that effect. If Bugri Naabu has accepted something from somewhere and has admitted that he is bribable and so accepted some bribe from somebody, let the police pick him up.”

“Under Ghana’s laws, acceptance of bribe is a crime...Bugri Naabu is a criminal and Mustapha Hamid is an accomplice, and they are the ones who are destroying the image of Northerners and not the NDC," Mr Anyidoho said.
