The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has declared its plan to call for the appearance of Kennedy Agyapong, a contender for the party’s flagbearer position, in front of the disciplinary committee over threats and accusations hurled against the president Akufo Addo and running mate Dr. Bawumia
This comes in light of his alleged threats and accusations aimed at President Akufo-Addo and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia during the recent Special Delegates Conference where he grumbled about the president and running for ‘chasing his agent away’
In a widely disseminated video on both social media and mainstream media, Kennedy Agyapong, who also serves as the Assin Central Member of Parliament, can be observed issuing warnings to the aforementioned leaders concerning attacks on his representatives.
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. The infuriated minister grumbled.
It has been revealed subsequently that these statements were made by the outspoken legislator during a radio interview.
A statement released on Sunday, authored by Justin Kodua Frimpong, the General Secretary of the NPP, reveals that Mr. Agyapong will be requested to explain his threats before the Disciplinary Committee.
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.
Furthermore, four other individuals will also be summoned before the party’s disciplinary committee due to allegations of misconduct.
