Dr. Bawumia is being accused of enticing two workers of the Electoral Commission with a total sum of GHC10,000 in order to verify his voter registeration status in the comfort of his home.

However, Deputy Communications Director of the NPP, Anthony Karbo believes the party’s Vice Presidential Candidate did nothing wrong, as the two EC workers volunteered the courtesy out of respect for Mr. Bawumia  given the  long queue at the polling station at the time.

“Indeed my understanding is that they [EC officials] only brought the electoral register. He looked at it and realized that his name was still on the register and then asked them to go,” Anthony Karbo explained on Accra-based Joy Fm.

Mr. Karbo also dismissed the assertions that the country’s electoral laws had been broken. He argued that Dr. Bawumia’s case was not the first.

“In Laura for instance, the Paramount Chief of Laura didn’t go down to get himself registered. For many of the paramount chiefs, the Electoral Commission officials take the document to them,” he defended.
