Mr Kwabena Owusu Aduomi, who is a former Member of Parliament for Ejisu Constituency has allegedly revealed that he has paid some money to constituency delegates in the form of a bribe for them to have them vote for him for the New Patriotic Party NPP Parliamentary primaries in the country.
However, Mr Kwabena Owusu Aduomi further indicated that the constituency delegates despite the sum of money he have paid to them to win their votes, did not vote for him and for that matter, he has lost the election to his strongest opponent.
On that note, the former Member of Parliament for Ejisu Constituency Mr Kwabena Owusu Aduomi therefore acknowledged and indicated that politics in Ghana as a country is a very expensive venture and it is therefore in the form of a game for the brave and not for a fainted hearted person.
“I paid a lot of money during the primaries. I paid GHc5,000 to each of the 600 delegates but I lost the election. Let me tell you this, politics is very expensive. That’s how huge an amount I paid just for people to endorse my candidature. It’s a game for the brave,” he said.
It could be recalled that the former deputy Minister for Road and Highway, Mr Kwabena Owusu Aduomi allegedly lost the Member of Parliament seat for the Ejosu Constituency to his opponent Lawyer John Kumah (incumbent Ejisu (MP) on the last Nee Patriotic Party NPP parliamentary primaries in 2020.
However, Lawyer John Kumah (incumbent Ejisu (MP) attained a total of 397 votes which represents 55.99 per cent of the votes against Mr Kwabena Owusu Aduomi who won 307 votes representing only 43.3 per cent.
