I am scared NPP will use money to rig 2024 elections – Kofi Amoabeng

Former Chief Executive Officer of defunct UT Bank, Captain Prince Kofi Amoabeng (rtd), has stated that chaos might erupt if the New Patriotic Party (NPP) rigs the 2024 elections.

Amoabeng expressed his fears regarding potential electoral manipulation by the NPP, warning that such actions could lead to unrest in the country.

Speaking in an interview on Joy News on May 18, 2024, he highlighted his concerns, citing the NPP’s track record and economic mismanagement as key factors behind his apprehension.

“I am scared a bit, but I don’t waste my time fearing what is going to happen in the future. I believe in the present,” he stated.

He did not mince words in his assessment of the NPP’s performance, asserting that they had “messed up badly and disappointed Ghanaians.”

However, he also noted that the party possessed significant financial resources, which he implied could be used to influence the electoral process.

“But I am scared in the sense that I think even though it is not difficult to say that the NPP had messed up badly and disappointed Ghanaians, they have a lot of money.

“Stolen or whatever, they have a lot of it. And therefore, they will use it to try to stay in power.

“That is where my fear comes in because I think if there is an obvious win for the NDC and… they can use their money and influence to rig and do all sorts of things, things might explode…so we have to pray,” he added.

The 2024 general election is seen as a straight race between the NPP led by Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia and the NDC led by former president John Dramani Mahama.

The NPP has adopted a ‘breaking the 8’ mantra as they try to win a third consecutive term in office after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo ends his term in 2025.

The NDC through Mahama, who is running for president for the fourth consecutive time, is seeking a return to office after he was voted out in 2016.
