Former Member of Parliament for Suhum Frederick Opare-Ansah has declared that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer candidate Kennedy Agyapong will lose in his own seat on November 4, 2023.
On October 27, 2023, Opare-Ansah stated during an interview on Wontumi Radio that he was confident Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia will win in the Central Region.
“We will beat him in the election in the Central Region, and he should try and make any attempt to cause anything. If he tries, I will let him sleep early, I will let him sleep before 6,” he said.
The former MP questioned Agyapong’s loyalty to the party during their years in opposition.
“Why did Kennedy feel like there were no men in the NPP? At the time that we were fighting for the party, where was he? Today we are in power and we have given you numerous contracts”, he alleged.
He also brought up claims that Agyapong had threatened people with official secrets.
“The last time he made someone call me that, if I don’t stop talking about him, he would spill the government’s secrets. Am I in the government for him to spill the government’s secret? That is what he does, threatening people that if they don’t do this, they will do this,” he added.
Kennedy, along with Dr. Bawumia, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, and Francis Addai-Nimoh, will compete for the position of flagbearer.
November 4, 2023 is the date set by the NPP to elect President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s replacement as the party’s leader.
