Kennedy Agyapong, the member of parliament for Assin Central, met with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the party headquarters in Accra.
In order to participate in a gathering of candidates for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearership competition, which is set for November 4, 2023, the president was on the property.
At the party’s national headquarters, Kennedy Agyapong, the member of parliament for Assin Central, and Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, who were both strong candidates, crossed paths.
Agyapong, who is grinning broadly, is shown shaking hands with the president in a picture released by the government-run Daily Graphic. Bawumia, Francis Addai-Nimoh, another candidate, and several prominent NPP members are shown in the picture.
Owusu Afriyie Akoto, the fourth contender, was also present at the function but was not included in this specific picture.
The foursome executed a contract promising to honor the results of the elections scheduled for November 4, 2023.
In contrast to other meetings when they had disagreements on their respective campaign platforms, the Bawumia-Agyapong encounter resulted in a period of amicable and cordial exchanges.
Both sides have made charges and denials of other allegations prior to this meeting.
The most recent of these allegations was made by MP Kennedy Agyapong, who said that influential NPP figures had given him over $800 million in exchange for his resignation in favor of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
The Bawumia camp responded quickly, disputing the allegations and pressing Kennedy Agyapong to reveal the identities of those who approached him with this proposal.
The National Delegates Conference is scheduled for November 4, 2023, and the delegates will have the opportunity to choose the party’s leader for the general elections of 2024. On Thursday, November 2, 2023, the New Patriotic Party will hold a press conference to provide the public with an update on the party’s progress and plans.
