Mr Portuphy has come under heavy criticism for conflict of interest serving as the Coordinator of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) and Chairman of the governing party, NDC.

Daily Guide on January 26, 2015 published a story which reads that the NADMO boss spent in excess of GHC 300 million on relief items in the last quarter of 2012, describing the expenditure as “ghostly.”

Lawyer to Mr Portuphy, Abraham Amaliba speaking on Radio Gold said his client is demanding a whooping GHc5 million for damages for libel and an injunction to restrain Daily Guide from publishing similar stories.

Mr Abraham Amaliba argued that Daily Guide published the story without conducting further investigation to ascertain the credibility or otherwise of the story contained in the publication prior to its publication.
