The Member of Parliament for Adenta Kojo Adu –Asare has jumped to the defense of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) over the type of campaign strategy it’s waging especially using huge and expensive bill boards.

Critics of the government especially the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has lashed out against the government for engaging in profligate campaigns mounting several huge bill boards which cost thousands of Cedis across the country.

There have been speculations that the ruling party has taken advantage of incumbency advantage and is using the tax payer’s hard earned monies to prosecute the party’s campaigns.

However speaking on Peace FM’s Kokorokoo show on Monday, Hon. Adu-Asare vehemently denied that state monies have been used in running the NDC’s campaigns, adding that the party through its various means of raising monies has used its own resources to fund the campaign activities.

He said, the ruling NDC government which is mindful of the fact that it needs to be accountable to the people will not dip its hands into state coffers to run a party activity.

Hon. Adu- Asare noted that most of the huge bill boards mounted across the country especially in Accra was duly sponsored by resourceful persons who believe in the vision and ideals of the NDC party.
