Gradually but surely the truth in the Paul Afoko case is emerging and at the end of the day several party leaders may be exposed as lairs.

First, enquiries by the "Insight" have established that nobody has asked for Mr. Afoko to be disqualified on grounds that he has been convicted before.

The petition before the Vetting Committee of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) only alleges that Mr. Afoko spent time in a drug rehabilitation Center in England.

All along, Mr. Afoko and his supporters have claimed that the petitioner alleged that he was convicted for his opposition to the Rawlings-led coup of 1981.

They have also claimed that the petitioner alleges that Mr. Afoko was convicted for dealing in narcotics.

Another claim which has fallen flat is that the petitioner is unknown.

In an interview with Radio Gold, Mr. Martin Korsah, Director of elections of the NPP said the petitioner is known.

He claimed that the petitioner provided his or her name and address and hinted that he or she may not be a stranger.

According to the �Daily Guide� of Tuesday, February 25, 2014, the NPP has requested for the assistance of Interpol to verify the allegations against Mr. Afoko.

This is clear evidence that the vetting committee chaired by a retired Supreme Court Judge is taking the allegations seriously.

The balloting for slots in the contest for national chairmanship of the party has been put on hold pending the outcome of the investigations into the allegations against Mr. Afoko.

Some party insiders say that Mr. Afoko is clearly in the lead in the contest for the leadership of the party.

Mr. Afoko has publicly denied all the allegations against him and urged his supporters to remain firm.
