- The politician says he wept when he got word of these machinations
Maverick politician, Kennedy Agyapong, has revealed there is mounting pressure on President Akufo Addo to revoke his membership with the NPP.
According to Kennedy Agyapong, this kind of pressure is all because of his frank talks about the NPP in his public statements.To this end, Kennedy Agyapong, says he will campaign against some parliamentarians in the NPP plotting against him ahead of the 2020 elections.

“...When I was in China they were writing letters to convince the president to sack me from the party, it was John Boadu who defended me…and I don’t blame the president because everyone knows he likes me and so persistently they tell him, he is over pampering me, why would he not support them to sack me from the party," Kennedy Agyapong stated.
Explaining what exactly is happening behind closed doors, Kennedy Agyapong further intimated how he wept after hearing of the machinations to bring him down.
"There is pressure on him [Akufo-Addo] to sack me from the party, he called John Boadu to write a letter. I’m pained but I’m quiet, on the said day, I cried before Frema [Chief of Staff]. What hurts most is that Nana Akufo-Addo does not know what those people said about him before he became president and today, they are enjoying," he lamented.
