Correspondence from Eastern Region:
Deep throat information gathered by GhanaWeb indicates that each delegate in the New Juaben South Constituency would be over GHC10,000 rich in today’s primaries.
According to information gathered, while contender Michael Okyere Baafi is splashing GHC4,000 to each delegate, incumbent Mark Assibey-Yeboah is giving $1,000.
The separate amounts of money exclude other items given including Television sets among others.
The New Juaben South is one of the hottest constituencies in the Eastern Region as it has never contained a parliamentary candidate more than one term.
However, Dr. Assibey-Yeboah has held the fort for two terms, and campaigns have been so high against him this time.
Some constituency executives were seen displaying their tumb-printed ballot papers to indicate who they had voted for.
The New Juaben South Organiser, Alhaji Abubakar Alhassan aka B. Wassa, displayed his ballot paper before putting it in the ballot box. He defended that everyone knows his preferred candidate so nothing wrong with him showing it.
Voting started exactly 7 am in all 35 voting centers in the Constituency in a calm manner amidst tight security.
COVID-19 preventive protocols were also strictly observed.
