Kennedy Agyapong On Rampage
…Threatens to Expose NPP for Firing BOST Boss
Controversial politician and Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Agyapong, has threatened to reveal how the New Patriotic Party (NPP) won the 2016 elections.
According to him, his party did not win the elections ‘physically’ in the contest that threw the National Democratic Congress (NDC) out of office humiliatingly.
Speaking on Accra-based Net2 TV, Mr Agyapong lamented that some members of his party had joined forces to shut him down and disgrace him, like they did to Mr Alfred Obeng, after sacrificing huge sums to bring the party to power.
“You are not grateful to people who helped you or who helped us come into power and then you give a reward like this… Alfred Obeng’s money, which he gave me that I took to the Ashanti Region. If they dare me, I will reveal what we used it for,” he said.
Mr Kennedy Agyapong seemed peeved over the dismissal of the Managing Director of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transport Company (BOST), Mr Alfred Obeng Boateng.
Spewing resounding threats, the ‘say-it-all’ MP said he would never succumb the pressure mounted on him to throw him off his feet.
“If NPP wants to bring me down, I’ll also bring the party down and tell how we won the 2016 election. We didn’t win it physically, I am telling you today…NPP should dare me, I’ll reveal every secret about 2016 election,” he added
“They should dare me like they did to Alfred Obeng, I’ll disgrace the party… I’m giving them the last warning. If you say you will bring me down, I swear to God, I will drag the NPP to the ground,” Mr Agyapong said angrily.
“If we don’t take care and the NDC comes back to power, we that had sacrificed to help the party, we are finished,” he cautioned.
President Akuffo-Addo, as part of a seeming reshuffle exercise, last week sacked Alfred Obeng as CEO of BOST. Also fired were the CEOs of Ghana Ports and Habours Authority (GPHA), Ghana Export Promotion Authority (GEPA) and Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH).
The Assin-Central MP failed to complain about the fates of the other sacked CEOs, even though they too must have financially contributed towards NPP’s electoral victory.
