Founder of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), Akua Donkor has vehemently debunked receiving an amount of GH¢ 30,000 from an unknown source to support her party’s parliamentary candidate in the Talensi by-election.

Yaro Bameezina Philip is reported to have said that he is likely not to vote for himself because his party has neglected him. According to him, his party’s founder, Akua Donkor has refused to financially support his campaign though he had gathered information that she has been given about GH¢30,000 for the campaign.

“Everybody is campaigning but what Akua Donkor is doing is not the best. In the north here, you can’t do politics without pushing money. They have given you the money, something like 300 million old cedis [GHc30,000] and you don’t want to give me a pesewa. Should I use my own money for the campaign? You were on your knees begging me to stand for you and now you don’t want to push money,” he alleged on Citi News.

However speaking on Kasapa 102.3 FM’s afternoon political show Si Mi So on Monday, Madam Akua Donkor denied the allegation saying, “I have always personally funded my political activities ever since I founded this party. I am a resourceful farmer capable of funding whatever endeavour I undertake. What is more expensive than forming and running a political party?”

The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), the dominant opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), the People's National Convention (PNC), Ghana Freedom Party’s (GFP) and the Progressive People's Party (PPP) are battling it out in the by-election which has become necessary following the enskinment of Mr Robert Nachinab Doameng Mosore as the Paramount Chief of the Tongo Traditional Area and his subsequent resignation as Member of Parliament for the constituency.

A total of 39,523 voters are expected to cast their ballot in the Tuesday, July 7, 2015 by-election.
