Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has voiced worries about the possible effects of Kenedy Agyapong, a prospective presidential candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), taking office.
He asserted that if elected, Kennedy Agyapong may pursue a “lawless” style of rule.
Kennedy Agyapong’s words and recent NPP activities, including the takeover of UTV studios, are the inspiration for Nketiah’s statements.
Nketiah claims that these incidents demonstrate the NPP’s leadership’s contempt for the law and the idea of fair government.
In his interview with Oyerepa, Nketiah highlighted Agyapong’s statement: “Kennedy Agyapong said if Wontumi reports him to the police, then he is a woman. Someone who wants to become president and ensure the rule of law works is saying that if Wontumi reports him to the police, then he is a woman and that he should rather prepare and go and face the person.”
Nketiah raised concerns about this kind of rhetoric, questioning whether such a stance is indicative of a culture within the NPP party.
“That’s what Kennedy said, because if he could say that if he becomes president and you do something wrong, he won’t take you to court or involve the police, but will confront you. It means he will leave the presidency and go and fight with his enemies,” he added.
