NPP’s attempt to allegedly buy Hopeson Adorye failed

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has attempted to persuade its hurtful members who left the party to join another in an effort to hold onto power in the general elections in 2024.

Because of this, it is said that some top NPP members tried to persuade Hopeson Adorye, a well-known member of the Movement for Change (MFC), to openly defect and join the NPP again. The NPP was fighting for Adorye’s support, and the stakes were high.

Their attempts were thwarted, though, as Adorye remained steadfast in rejecting their suggestion and restating his unwavering dedication to the Movement for Change.

The source claims that in order to persuade Hopeson Adorye, a covert meeting with a few prominent NPP officials took held under the shadow of night.

Adorye was considered a great asset because he had been a vocal opponent of the ruling party. His stature and steadfast dedication to transformation rendered him an ideal subject for the NPP’s frantic manoeuvre.

According to the source, during the meeting, an NPP representative allegedly slipped Adorye a very large envelope across the table, promising to give him $5 million should he publicly reject the Movement for Change, defect, and rejoin the NPP. However, the attempt to persuade Adorye to do so was unsuccessful.

Hopeson Adorye, however, said, “My commitment to the Movement for Change is unshakable,” and he pushed the envelope back to the NPP officials. Money cannot change my values or my commitment to the cause. Ghana deserves better, and I’ll keep pushing for openness, responsibility, and effective leadership.
