Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, a flagbearer hopeful of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), has warned the party’s elections committee to ensure that the upcoming November 4 Presidential primary is conducted in a fair and transparent manner.
In a speech at his Kumasi Showdown walk on Saturday, September 30, 2023, the outspoken politician said he would not hesitate to take on the party if he believes that the elections have been rigged in favour of another candidate.
“I’m not like Alan who is gentle, let them try…” Ken warned amidst thunderous cheers from his supporters.
Mr. Agyapong was referring to Alan Kyerematen, a former Trade and Industry Minister who recently resigned from the NPP citing intimidation and unfair treatment towards him and his supporters in the NPP’s flagbearership race.
Mr. Kyerematen has now formed what he calls Movement For Change to contest the upcoming 2024 Presidential elections as an independent candidate.
Mr. Agyapong said he would operate “an eye for an eye” policy during the election and that he would not allow anyone to bully him.
He also claimed that he had been offered huge sums of money to step down in order to allow Vice President Bawumia easy passage.
He said he has rejected all such offers, including a promise to make him a running mate to Dr. Bawumia.
Ken Agyapong said he remains resolute and that he will win the November 4 election.
