But, given the overwhelming support he received from NPP loyalists, Members of Parliament (MPs), and government appointees, Dr. Bawumia's performance to the NDC is embarrassing. In response, Allotey Jacobs chastised the NDC for attacking the procedure, which he says was similar to what the NDC did in May. Dr. Bawumia's triumph, he says, was not only historic but also spectacular. "Call it 61 percent; 61% can equal 95 percent." You ambush, rush, and rig your system to favour one person, then return and declare a clear instance of the actual election process in which someone receives 61 percent embarrassing? "This is just political bluster," he stated on Accra's Peace FM.

Bernard Allotey Jacobs, a former Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has slammed the party over Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.

Following Dr Bawumia’s election as the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer, the NDC has slammed the process, claiming injustice and biased actions in his favour.

After polling 61.4% of the total vote cast last Saturday, he defeated Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong, former Agriculture Minister Dr Osei Afriyie Akoto, and former Mampong MP Francis Addai-Nimoh.

Hopeson Adorye, a key member of the Movement for Change who has been detained, had a verbal altercation with a police officer as he was being led out of the police headquarters on Wednesday, May 22.

He attempted to talk with his lawyer, Ken Kuranchie while being put into a police car, but the officer interrupted and instructed him to proceed rapidly inside the car.

It was at this moment that he yelled to the police officer, “I’m talking to my lawyer, please, and you’re obstructing me. What is the significance of that? Are you the sole police officer?

In an interview with Joy FM, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, a former Member of Parliament for Adenta and current member of the Movement for Change, stated that the arrest is politically motivated.

He stated, “Hopeson Adorye is not about to flee Ghana or his house since the police aim to prosecute him with the dissemination of fake information.

“So, to go to the extent of keeping him all day in the police station and bringing him over to the Ministries to detain him, you point fingers backward at yourself that there is something political at play and it’s not fair,” he said.

“This is obviously politically motivated, there is no doubt about that,” he said.

“Because Hopson has been up and running, and some folks are feeling a bit tense and Jiffy about some of the things he has said. And this is the method of muscling him, attempting to scare the movement for change; it will not succeed. “I am convinced that it is politically motivated.”

Mr. Adorye is now in detention and scheduled to appear in court on Thursday. He has not yet been charged with a crime, but authorities are looking into the dissemination of incorrect information.
