One of the affiliate group of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), ‘Alliance for Footsoldiers Advocacy (AFFA)’, has criticised the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, over a recent cash donation to Ghanaian comedienne, Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa, popularly known as Afia Schwarzenegger.
In a statement by AFFA on March 15, the Alliance said it is appalled by the dolling of GHS50,000 by the Chief of Staff to Afia Schwarzenegger to aid in her father’s burial.
According to the group, although they sympathise with the bereaved family, the gesture by the Chief of Staff, undermines the efforts of the party’s grassroots, who worked for the NPP’s victory in the 2016 general election.
In their view, Afia Schwarzenegger is an ‘opportunistic fellow, who does not deserve the gesture which was extended to her.
In a letter dated 15th March, 2022, the group said:
“We say this because Afia Schwarzenegger contributed nothing to the NPP’s success/ victory in the 2016 general elections. Rather, and as a matter of fact, she used her platforms to make mockery of then opposition leader, candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo prior to the 2016 elections.
