Despite standing for and winning election into the Council of State to represent the Greater Accra Region, Dr. Nii Kotei Dzani has said he has no interest in partisan politics.
The business man, who said partisan politics in Ghana is ‘appalling’, insisted he stood for the the Council of State election because it is not partisan.
“I don’t want to engage myself in partisan politics because it is appalling but the Council of State job is not partisan that is why I contested.
“I entered because it is not partisan politics,” he explained.
Dzani, who stated this speaking on Onua FM, also denied allegations that he lobbied a former Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, ET Mensah, to step down for him, saying, he did not lobby him.
“I did not lobby E.T Mensah.
“He is my uncle but I have not seen him for many times. The only time I saw him was yesterday [Thursday] when he called me at the venue and said he has stepped down.”
Kotei Dzani has also been accused of bribing delegates to the electoral college to aid his victory. Two of the delegates to the election said the Groupe Ideal President offered money to delegates so they could vote for him.
He has however denied the allegation, with the spokesperson of the Electoral Commission, EC, Eric Dzapasu, also insisting nothing of such happened.
