Some National Executive members of the United Front Party are accusing the party’s flag bearer of taking over 2,500,000 Ghana Cedis to endorse the National Democratic Congress.
They also described the action of the party’s embattled Flagbearer, Nana Agyenim Boateng for unilaterally endorsing President Mahama as a hoax because it lacks the backing of executives.
Flag bearer of the UFP, Nana Agyenim Boateng announced at a press conference in Accra on November 21, 2016 the party has thrown its weight behind the National Democratic Congress.
Running mate, David Essie Bunya says the flag bearer did not consult the party leadership before taking that decision.
“This [endorsement] the members and the National Executive Council have received with dismay. We emphatically call that proclamation a Hoo-Ha and Hoax”, he said.
Founding member and 2012 running mate, Osei Agyen Fred, described the flag bearer’s act as 'dancing to the tune of his pay master [President John Mahama].'
They accuse him of receiving twelve 4x4 cars together with over 2,500,000 Ghana Cedis of tax payers' money.
The executives say their action is based on the fact that seventy five per cent of members are in favour of the New Patriotic Party flag bear, Nana Akufo-Addo and his campaign messages.
Flanked by the founding member and 2012 running mate, Osei Agyen Fred, they declared their support for the New Patriotic Party.
But Nana Agyenim Boateng who denied the allegations levelled against him by the executives declared the action of the executives null and void.
According to him, the affected executives are already facing disciplinary action.
