Ken Agyapong arrives at NPP HQ to meet elections committee

Kennedy Agyapong,  candidate for flagbearer, has arrived at the NPP headquarters to meet with the elections committee.

Sources claim that the purpose of the meeting is to give him and the other presidential contenders a chance to discuss issues with how the special delegates conference was handled.

With a total of 629 votes, or 68.15% of the vote, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia won the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Special Delegates’ Conference.

Former trade minister Alan Kyerematen finished third with 95 votes, 10.29%, followed by Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong in second place with 132 votes, 14.30%.

The two leaders are threatened in a widely shared video by Mr. Agyapong, who is also the MP for Assin Central, over alleged attacks on his operatives.

“President Akufo-Addo, I will give you a showdown in this country; I swear to God,” he was overheard saying. Vice President, if you drive away my agent, I’ll have a showdown with you. I promise it to God. You will be informed of what will occur. I will seriously confront President Akufo-Addo, I vow to God.

He will be called before the Disciplinary Committee to justify his threats, according to a statement released on Sunday and signed by NPP General Secretary Justin Kodua Frimpong.

Kennedy’s campaign team emphasized on Monday that the remark made during Saturday’s special delegates conference regarding a “showdown” with President Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia was not a threat.

Agyapong’s campaign manager, Kwame Owusu, claimed during a news conference that the term “showdown” was just intended to suggest that Agyapong would triumph in the elections on November 4 regardless of any alleged intimidation.
