Ivor Greenstreet has rebuked claims suggesting he bribed his way to victory. He has denied all the claims regarding them as untrue and unfortunate. Following his victory in the just concluded election, there has been so many tongue lash from his opponents regarding his victory in the elections.
This included his primary opponent, Samia Nkrumah, daughter of the 1st President of Ghana. Samia alleged that most of the Conventions Peoples Party (CPP) delegates received between 200 and 500 Ghana Cedis to vote for Ivor Greenstreet who is now the Presidential Candidate. Also displeased with the election result was Professor Agyemang Badu Akosa who also said that delegates who voted in the primaries, voted for money.
But Greenstreet has denied these claims saying that he earned his votes through a “covert campaigning strategy” which turned out to be of great significance.
It was an overwhelming victory for the physically challenged Ivor Greenstreet during Saturday’s National Delegates’ Congress. Out of the 1,992 valid votes cast, he emerged the new Presidential candidate of the CPP in a landslide victory of 1,288 votes over Samia’s 579 votes. There were about 2400 CPP delegates who were present at the congress on Saturday.
Greenstreet seems not to be alone in this fight, the Second Vice Chairperson of the CPP, Susan Adu Amankwah has also rejected these allegations describing them as ‘hogwash’. She frowned at the defeated Samia Nkrumah for alleging those claims against the newly elected Presidential Candidate. Greenstreet further encouraged members of his party to put their grudges behind and focus on the victory of their party in the November elections.
Ivor Greenstreet will be up against New Patriotic Party (NPP)’s Akufo-Addo and National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s John Dramani Mahama in the November Presidential elections. CPP’s Greenstreet has urged party members to stick together for the actualization of their party’s win objective.
