Allegations of vote-buying disappointing - Delle


Former General Secretary, Mr Ivor Greenstreet beat Samia Nkrumah on Saturday after winning the presidential primaries with 1,288 votes of the 1,992 valid votes cast.

Samia Nkrumah had subsequently alleged that vote buying caused her defeat in the party’s presidential primary.

She said most of the delegates received between 200 and 500 Ghana cedis to vote for Mr Ivor Greenstreet.


However, the National Chairman of the party, Prof Delle has described her comments as unfortunate.

“I’m deeply disappointed… I didn’t expect leading members of the party to speak in that way. I’m saddened by it and I think we should respect delegates,” he told Accra-based Joy FM.

Prof Delle further advised Samia to apologise for her comments.

“I am confident that our former chair and leader will think about it and probably come back to withdraw it because it is not in the interest of the party,” he added.


“I am pleading with the delegates not take this as an offence...They should just accept it as some of the fallouts of elections…some people are not good loser,” he said.

Prof Delle expressed hopes that the matter will be resolved "within the next two-three or four days."
