The Central Regional polling station executives are livid about the threatening and blackmailing posture that the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central and flagbearer aspirant of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Hon. Kennedy Agyapong, has resorted to ahead of the November 4 presidential primary of the NPP.
Responding to a viral video where the maverick legislator is seen in a studio interview with Adakabre Frimpong Manso of Neat FM , daring and threatening brimstone on the Central Regional chairman and the executives of the party should they fail to give him 100 per cent of the votes from the region, Mr. Raphael Acquah, the polling station chairman of Wurakese Station – D/A Polling Station, on behalf of many delegates have dared Hon. Agyapong to give them showdown if he is, indeed, a man of his words, because they have resolved to vote massively for the Vice-President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
“We’re also daring him to give us showdown because we’ll definitely vote massively for Dr. Bawumia,” Mr. Acquah declared.
He pointed out that Hon. Agyapong only makes noise but unlike Chairman Wontumi and co, he (Ken Agyapong) lacks the courage to take action.
“He is always daring, threatening and blackmailing people, yet he always lacks the courage and boldness to take action. Look at Chairman Wontumi; he is always seen on the battlefield fighting for the party and what he believes in,” he said.
“We saw Chairman Wontumi at our own backyard (Assin North) fighting the NDC even when the NDC thugs were opening firearms on him. We know of what he did at Asawase. He is the action man and a man of few words. But Ken is always threatening and insulting people. When it matters most at the battlefield, we don’t find him,” Mr. Acquah added.
Delegates of the NPP will elect a flagbearer for the 2024 general election on November 4. So far, the two main contenders are the Vice-President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, and Hon. Kennedy Agyapong.
