Acting Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay, has said he is providing a bus to each of the 275 constituency arms of the party to be used for commercial purposes to raise funds for its operations.
According to him, the buses will be supplied before the party’s national executive elections on 7 July 2018.
Mr Blay explained on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme on Friday, 11 May that: “I am supplying buses to all the constituency branches of the NPP. Each constituency will receive a bus from me personally for commercial purposes just to raise money for party activities”.
When asked how he will finance the procurement of the buses, he said: “When you are resourceful, you will be able to do that. You don’t need to do that from your own pockets, no, you can’t do it that way; as a politician, you need to be resourceful and be able to raise funds for activities of such kind.”
The NPP is preparing to elect a new crop of national executives who will steer affairs for the next four years.
Mr Blay will be facing off with Alhaji Short, Stephen Ntim and Dr Richard Amoako Baah in the party’s polls.
