Presidential hopeful of the New Patriotic Party, Kennedy Agyapong, has issued a warning to former Member of Parliament for Suhum, Frederick Opare-Ansah, to refrain from spreading false information about him. Agyapong accused Opare-Ansah of badmouthing him to individuals within Vice President Bawumia’s camp in an attempt to become a key member of his campaign team.
In response, Agyapong alleged that Opare-Ansah accepted bribes from the National Democratic Congress during his tenure as deputy on the parliamentary select committee on communications. Agyapong also claimed that Opare-Ansah had asked to be Agyapong’s coordinator, but was rejected due to doubts about his motives.
Agyapong, who is seeking to become the NPP’s flagbearer in the 2024 elections, has centered his campaign on discipline and job creation through the acronym PHD, which stands for Patriotism, Honesty, and Discipline. However, he faces tough competition from Vice President Bawumia and former Minister of Trade and Industries, Alan Kyerematen.
Agyapong has recently retired from parliament but is still eager to lead the NPP as flagbearer in the upcoming elections. He warned Opare-Ansah to stop spreading false information or face exposure.
