President Akufo-Addo and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia were the targets of threats and allegations made by Kennedy Agyapong during the Special Delegates Conference on Saturday. The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has stated its determination to call Agyapong before the disciplinary committee.
The two leaders are threatened in a widely shared video by Mr. Agyapong, who is also the MP for Assin Central, for attacks on his operatives.
He was heard saying, “President Akufo-Addo, I will give you a showdown in this country, I swear to God. Vice President, I will give you a showdown for chasing my agent away. I swear to God. You will hear what will happen here. I swear to God, I will challenge President Akufo-Addo big time.”
Mr. Agyapong will be called before the Disciplinary Committee to justify his threats, according to a statement released on Sunday and signed by NPP General Secretary Justin Kodua Frimpong.
The party’s disciplinary committee will also call four more people to account for misbehavior.
“Pursuant to Article 10(7)(5) of the NPP Constitution, certain individuals namely: Mr. Raphael Patrick Sarfo, Mr. Charles Dokyi Yaw-Addo, Mr. Musa Sulemana, and Mr. Hopeson Yaovi Adorye will be referred to the Party’s Disciplinary Committee. This is a direct response to evidence, including video and photographic materials, which suggests potential violations of the provisions outlined in Article 3(5)(A) of the Party’s Constitution and potential misconduct under Article 4(7).
“Emphasis must also be placed on the fact that Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, pursuant to the above-mentioned constitutional provisions, will also be summoned before the Disciplinary Committee of the Party to provide responses and further details to the accusations and threats he made against certain personalities in a video that has since gone viral on social media and mainstream media.”
