NPP candidate apparently pays households’ light bills in the Assin North by-election.
Due to the subsequent parliamentary by-election in the area, the Assin North area is currently the center of focus in Ghanaian politics.
Bigwigs from the two major political parties, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the main opposition party, and the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), have descended to Assin North to solicit votes.
According to reports, the two parties are doing everything in their power to win the Assin North seat, which was made vacant after the NDC candidate, James Gyakye Quayson, was expelled from parliament after the Supreme Court of Ghana ruled that he was ineligible to run in the 2020 election.

While the postponed projects in the constituency are being continued by the NPP government as part of its efforts to ensure that its candidate, Charles Opoku, wins the election, which is set for June 29, 2023, the candidate himself is not remaining passive.
Charles Opoku is now paying for both the registration of new users and the renewal of National Health Insurance Cards (NHIS), according to a news report by Okay FM.
According to the report, Opoku is also clearing electricity bill arrears owing by the people he visits.
“Charles Opoku is signing up the electorate for the National Health Insurance Scheme. Additionally, his campaign staff is travelling from home to home, and if you owe power tariffs, they would pay them on your behalf, said Ibrahim Dadzie, a UTV Central Regional correspondent, in Twi.
If the NPP candidate’s activities are accurate, it is unclear whether they constitute vote buying.
