The Flagbearer of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) Kofi Akpaloo, has blamed the country’s under-development on both the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Mr Akpaloo’s assertion follows his claim that the NPP and the NDC have disbursed huge sums of money in the just-ended Assin North by-election in the Central Region.

Kofi Akpaloo speaking on the vote-buying tactics said the amount of money both political parties have dished out to the constituents in order to gain political power in Assin North can “establish about 30 factories in the constituency.”

The LPG flagbearer alleged that both the NPP and NDC gave out bags of cement and roofing sheets to the constituents in other to gain their votes.

“A lot of items including money were giving to some constituents….. so they have really spent a lot of money,” he stressed.

“Both the NPP and NDC have really paid huge sums of money in Assin North and none of them can deny that fact.

The NPP’s candidate Charles Opoku lost the parliamentary seat to the NDC’s candidate, James Gyakye Quayson who polled 17,245 votes representing 57.56%, against 12,630 votes garnered by opponent Charles Opoku, representing 42.15%, on Tuesday, June 27, 2023, with the LPG’s candidate, Sefenu Bernice Enyonam, polling a paltry 87 votes, representing 0.29%.
