The newly elected representative of Greater Accra Region on the Council of State, Dr. Nii Kotei Dzani, has denied allegations making the rounds that he offered money to delegates to vote for him.
Dzani, the President of Groupe Ideal, was accused by two delegates of offering delegates money to win. He polled 20 votes while his closest contender, Nene Kanor Attiapah got 12 votes.
The business man, while speaking on Eyewitness News, dismissed the allegation, saying “even if a government wins the election, they say opposition rigged the election, so I am not bothered by these claims.”
Corrobrating Dzani’s denial, the Director of Communications at the Electoral Commission, Eric Dzapasu, insisted that there was nothing of such during the election.
“I didn’t see people taking pictures of their ballots. One person was going into the booth with his phone but his attention was drawn to that. The press, delegates and election officials were all there, nothing untoward happened at the election,” Mr. Dzapasu said.
