NDC cannot bribe me - Paul Afoko

Paul Afoko is in court challenging the legitimacy of two members on the disciplinary committee which upheld his suspension.


According to him, he is comfortable and content with what he has and will not allow anyone to buy his conscience.

"I grew up in a family that I was comfortable in, my dad was fairly comfortable and he made us all comfortable. At age 20 my dad bought me an American sports car. I’m an entrepreneur and I’m doing well."


Speaking on Starr FM, he said "I am not in bed with the NDC…I don’t believe in their ideals that is why I am not a member of the NDC."

There have been allegations that the embattled National Chairman has received an undisclosed amount of money to ensure that Akufo-Addo loses the upcoming November 7 polls.

In the suit filed by Afoko contesting his suspension,  he  argues that  Alhaji Short and Gifty Kusi  who were on the disciplinary committee were not properly appointed.


Afoko  was suspended  in October 2015 after the party’s disciplinary committee upheld a letter from the National Council of Elders of the party requesting that Mr. Afoko be suspended until after the 2016 election.

He was accused of breaching the party’s rules and regulations in the matter of an alleged secret account managed by some party executives including now acting chairman Freddie Blay.

Mr Afoko insisted that he is "still the national chairman of the NPP".

"I remain chairman until my tenure is over in 2018 or the same delegates go and overturn the verdict that they don’t want me…I am battle ready to ensure that our party’s constitution is upheld and no group of people can illegitimise the constitution."
