Chief Of Staff’s Alleged GHC50k Donation To Afia Schwar Gets NPP Footsoldiers Angry
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that footsoldiers of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) have taken issue with reports that the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, donated GH¢50,000 towards the funeral of the late father of popular comedienne, Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa, popularly known as Afia Schwarzenegger.
A group that represents the interests of the NPP footsoldiers, the Alliance for Footsoldiers Advocacy (AFFA), has said in a statement that it is scandalised by the revelation.
According to AFFA, the huge donation by the Chief of Staff betrays the hardworking members at the party grassroots who gave everything to clinch victory for the NPP in the 2016 general election.
