Mahama can never sponsor my party - Akua Donkor

The outspoken leader and founder of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), Madam Akua Donkor has downplayed a possible sponsorship of smaller parties from the ruling National Democratic Congress and President John Dramani Mahama.

The founder of the United People’s Party (UPP), Mr. Akwasi Addae Odike has been heard on tape loudly bragging about the support he enjoys from the President and the ruling NDC, as he seek to do their bidding, ahead of the 2016 general elections.

There have been allegations that several of the smaller parties are being bankrolled by the government in power hence the failure on the Electoral Commission (EC) to clamp down such parties for failure to adhere to the political parties regulations.

But speaking to Kasapa FM’s Maame Broni, Madam Akua Donkor noted she prepared extensively before the formation of her Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) and hence does not seek to receive any sponsorship package from government or an opposition party.

She said under no circumstance can she sell her conscience and the future of Ghana for peanuts.

According to her, her utmost aim is to become a president and contribute her quota to building the country and will resist any attempt to couch her through whatever sponsorship package.
