“Wontumi Issues Warning: Further Threats from Ken Agyapong Could Lead to Legal Action and Arrest”

The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Benard Antwi Bosiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, has strongly advised NPP flagbearer hopeful Kennedy Agyapong to refrain from making insinuations and issuing threats towards him.

During a press conference held on October 4, 2023, in Kumasi, Chairman Wontumi issued a stern warning to Kennedy Agyapong, cautioning that he would take legal action and have him arrested if he continued to make threats. He referenced instances in the past where Agyapong’s threats had tragic consequences, mentioning the assassination of investigative journalist Ahmed Suale in 2019.

Chairman Wontumi emphasized that he had not insulted anyone within the party and challenged Kennedy Agyapong to provide evidence if he claimed otherwise. He expressed his willingness to engage in reconciliation if such evidence were presented.

Furthermore, Chairman Wontumi refuted claims that he was responsible for harming the NPP. He pointed out that Kennedy Agyapong had visited Kumasi without contacting or meeting with party and government leadership in the region, yet had criticized several prominent figures. He questioned who was truly causing harm to the party.

Chairman Wontumi concluded by stating that he would not resort to insults but would take legal action if threatened by Kennedy Agyapong, emphasizing the potential consequences of such threats based on past experiences.

Background

At a large rally held at Kumasi’s Jubilee Park last weekend, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong, the Assin Central MP and an aspiring flagbearer for the NPP, made strong accusations against Vice President Dr. Bawumia and Chairman Wontumi, suggesting that their actions were causing harm to the party.

During his address, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong didn’t hold back as he addressed the two individuals, expressing concern that their words and actions could potentially destabilize the party. He criticized Chairman Wontumi for using his television platform to insult senior party members and for switching support from Alan to Bawumia.

Kennedy Agyapong emphasized that while he had no issue with political choices, he took issue with the manner in which criticism was being directed. He specifically accused Vice President Bawumia of intimidating party delegates in the run-up to the NPP’s internal race.

He warned that he, along with others, would not stand idly by if they perceived actions that could harm the party. Kennedy Agyapong highlighted the unprecedented situation where high-ranking government officials openly supported one candidate in a presidential race, cautioning that such a situation could have consequences for the party’s unity.
