A former regional chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Ghana has been caught on video allegedly accepting bribes from a supposed contractor in exchange for influencing the award of a contract.
The videos, which have been circulating on social media, show Bugri Naabu, the former Upper East Regional Chairman of the NPP, meeting with a man who claims to be a contractor. In the videos, Naabu is seen taking money from the man and promising to help him get a contract.
The videos have sparked outrage in Ghana, with many people calling for Naabu to be arrested and prosecuted. The NPP has also suspended Naabu from the party pending an investigation.
Naabu has denied the allegations, saying that the videos were doctored. He has also filed a police complaint against the person who leaked the videos.
The police are currently investigating the matter.
The Bugri Naabu scandal is the latest in a series of corruption scandals to hit the NPP. In recent months, several other NPP officials have been accused of corruption, including the former minister of energy, Boakye Agyarko.
The scandals have cast a shadow over the NPP and have raised questions about the party's commitment to fighting corruption. It remains to be seen how the Bugri Naabu scandal will play out, but it is sure to have a significant impact on Ghanaian politics.
