Before the National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP aspirant for Ejura Sekyeredumase could come to terms with the defeat she suffered in the May 13 parliamentary primaries, the Office of the Special Prosecutor has invited her to answer questions about spraying money on delegates at the polling station.
According to the OSP, it has taken interest in the conduct of Juliana Kinang Wassan, hence the invitation for questioning.
She later told journalists that she decided to shower money on the delegates to express love to them.
But the OSP is looking beyond the supposed show of love. Aside from the OSP’s invitation, the Ghana Police Service has also indicated in a statement that its legal department is studying the video to establish if Juliana Wassan has questions to answer following her conduct.
Interestingly, despite all the monetary ‘show of love’ which was definitely meant to influence the delegates to vote for her, she still lost.
The OSP has reportedly invited other aspirants who gave various items to delegates at the polling stations for questioning.
The use of money and other material things to influence voters in elections has been a trend that analysts have condemned over the years, but it still goes on, with politicians sinking millions of Ghana cedis into their bid to get elected.
