Aspiring National Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party, Freddie Blay, says his party is hoping to stay in power for the next 60 years.
Speaking at the partyâ€™s National Delegateâ€™s Conference in Koforidua on Saturday, Freddie Blay said: â€œIt is our hope and the President keeps telling us that we want to stay in power not for eight years but for more than 60 years come the years that we look forward to.â€
Over 6,000 delegates of the NPP are at the Koforidua Technical University taking part in the conference to elect new leaders for the next four years.
Special Prosecutor to investigate Freddie Blay
Meanwhile, the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, is investigating Freddie Blay on how he funded the purchase of 275 buses for all 275 constituencies of the party.
A source at the Office of the Special Prosecutor told Citi News that Mr. Amidu will go ahead with the investigations whether or not Mr. Blay wins this Saturdayâ€™s election.
The source said Mr. Martin Amidu is of the view that, Mr. Blay is a public officer as a Board Chairman of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), and also as a national officer of the governing party with influence, he falls under the Criminal offenses Act (1960) Act 29, and must therefore be questioned on his source of funding.
