I have stopped financing NPP – Paul Afoko
he suspended National Chairman of the NPP, Paul Afoko says he will not contribute to the funding of the party’s campaign activities in the upcoming November general elections.
According to him, he is returning vehicles he has already purchased for the party’s campaigns activities because the NPP has unfairly treated him.
As has been the tradition, the various political parties marshal resources to fund their campaign activities during elections from several sources including their own wealthy members.
Mr Afoko, an astute businessman who is known to have funded the party in previous elections was expected to be as generous to the party as he has over the years been, but the embattled former Chairman says he is not going to make such favours anymore.
He was last year suspended indefinitely by the National Executive Council of the party based on recommendation from the NPP’s disciplinary committee for acts of misconduct.
However speaking to Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Starr FM, Paul Afoko stated that the pickup vehicles he purchased was part of his plan for a solid campaign activities for 2016 elections but that plan could only materialize if he was fully at post as the Chairman of the party.
“I’m not buying any more cars. It was all part of a plan; you just don’t throw money at things… you plan.
“The plan included tooling the party up and if that plan is thrown out of sync or out of gear then…. . Some of them have already been branded in party colours, I’m not saying I will debrand the vehicles; the jury is out and going forward we’ll see what will happen. I have halted the process of ordering for more.”
