Professor Kingsley Nyarko, the Member of Parliament for Kwadaso, in the Ashanti Region, has come under intense criticism from internet users after claiming that an envelope he gave to some Electoral Commission (EC) officials at a polling center during the Ejisu by-election was not a bribe.

In a viral video, Nyarko was seen surreptitiously pulling a white envelope from his pocket and placing it on the table in front of the EC officials.

Responding to allegations of bribing EC officials to influence the outcome of the electoral process at the electoral center, during a media interaction, Kingsley Nyarko explained that he had no intentions of influencing the outcome of the elections and did not pay a bribe to the EC officials.

He explained that in subsequent days, he will address the matter into details.

“Overtly and covertly, I have not paid a bribe to anyone to influence the process negatively,” he said.

However, Kingsley Nyarko’s explanation about what transpired between him and the EC officials did not sit well with some netizens.

While some accused him of being dishonest, others called for his arrest and urged the Attorney-General to investigate the situation.

Here are some reactions from netizens:
