However, the despite media (UTV) Presenter cum Journalist has revealed a very big secret of Alban Bagbin that most people never knew about his personality. Many people might think that because he is a National Democratic Congress (NDC) member, he will only take the views of the NDC in Parliament.
However, according to Afia Pokua Vim Lady, Alban Bagbin is a straightforward and decisive man who dislike being unfair regardless of being an NDC member.
Afia Pokua wrote; “Rt. Hon Alban Bagbin is not for any side o. Those who know him very well like me know that neither NDC nor NPP can’t control him. Both sides will smell pepper 🌶 2016 on my mind”
She simply meant Alban Bagbin is a man of his word and so therefore not even the National Democratic Congress (NDC) can control his decisions in the house.
