Kennedy Agyapong, a potential flagbearer candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has spoken out about his resentment of certain lawmakers, notably those he claims to have aided in the past.
On October 5, 2023, he claimed in an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Starr FM that the aforementioned MPs had abandoned him as he ran for the NPP flagbearer post.
He singled out one MP, Alfred Obeng-Boateng, who represents the Western North Region’s Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai seat. He claims to have personally supported and campaigned for him in the past.
Agyapong stated his dissatisfaction, adding that Obeng-Boateng is now running a campaign against him despite his backing.
“Last week one of them that I have helped, I will never forgive him but after November 4th he will see what will happen. You see, if you are not even going to vote for me, you have a choice and I don’t have a problem.
“But the people in his constituency know that I went there to campaign for him, and this man picks up a phone and calls delegates, telling them not to vote for Kennedy Agyapong, but to vote for number two on the ballot. And then one of them asked him why, and he said Kennedy Agyapong doesn’t know how to talk,” he added.
He continued “I campaigned for him in Bibiani; I am not afraid of him, Alfred Obeng. I left his place at 1:00 a.m. for this man to tell me that I don’t know how to talk. I can never forgive that guy.”
He also disclosed that when Obeng-Boateng faced challenges in his career, he provided support, stating, “When they sacked him from BOST, he was always in my house till about 1:00 am, consoling him.
“If it was in America, they would say he has depression. And this man, if you won’t vote for me, that’s not a problem, but for you to go and tell your delegates that Kennedy Agyapong doesn’t know how to talk, I leave him to God.”
