NEIP CEO Arrested for Alleged Vote-Buying Scandal Ahead of NPP Primaries

The Chief Executive Officer of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (NEIP),Kofi Ofosu Nkansah, finds himself embroiled in controversy as he faces charges of distributing money to delegates ahead of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primaries. The arrest, carried out by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP), has sent shockwaves through the political landscape.

Mr. Ofosu Nkansah was taken into custody on Wednesday, January 10th, 2024, and escorted to the OSP office for questioning, marking a significant development in an ongoing investigation into the alleged vote-buying scheme. During an interview with City FM’s Eyewitness News, the NPP Akim Central constituency secretary, Felix Amakye, revealed that the current Member of Parliament, Mr. Kwame Ayimadu, played a crucial role in reporting the alleged misconduct.

Mr. Ayimadu’s actions led to the subsequent arrest of Mr. Ofosu Nkansah, creating ripples within the political circles. Mr. Ofosu Nkansah, who is vying for the Asante Akim Central NPP Parliamentary primaries, is facing tough competition from the incumbent MP, Mr. Kwame Ayimadu.

The arrest has added a layer of complexity to the already competitive political landscape, raising questions about the integrity of the electoral process. This incident sheds light on the challenges of maintaining a fair and transparent democratic process, as accusations of vote-buying continue to surface in the lead-up to the primaries.

As the investigation progresses, the political fate of Mr. Ofosu Nkansah and its potential impact on the upcoming NPP primaries remain uncertain, leaving the constituency in suspense and the public eagerly awaiting further developments.
