Aisha Huang Sponsors NPP – Otokunor
The leading opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) of benefiting from financial support from the embattled galamsey queen Aisha Huang.
Dr. Peter Boamah Otukonor, the Deputy General Secretary of the NDC told journalists at a press conference that the Akufo-Addo government’s slow approach to prosecuting the Chinese illegal miner is a clear indication that she is the party financier.
“If she’s not a financier of the NPP, I wonder how somebody who is supposed to have been deported – and the [former] Senior Minister… Osafo Marfo said that she has been deported – all of a sudden, the President is playing dumb and saying that he doesn’t know that the woman has been deported; and I think it is becoming one too many and becoming a worrying trend,” Dr. Otokunor noted on Thursday.
“You have a sitting president, who always says that he is not aware of businesses that he has undertaken. The president has issued an executive instrument and he says he is [not] aware. He has written letters of authority and he says he is not aware… corruption appears under him, everybody’s talking about it, and he says he is not aware”.
“Today, Aisha Huang, he is saying that he is not aware that Aisha Huang was deported. Very soon, he will say that he is not aware he is the president of this country”.
