- Reverend Owusu Bempah has denied that the NPP misconducted itself electorally on its way to winning the 2016 election

- He said the NPP won the election fair and square and that Agyapong's remark was inspired by frustration and anger
Isaac Owusu-Bempah has rejected suggestions that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) misconducted itself on its way to winning the 2016 election.
Kennedy Agyapong had suggested that the NPP employed "unfair" methods to win.
But in a reaction on Accra-based Okay FM, the reverend minister said the NPP won fair and square.
He said there was no truth to Agyapong's suggestion, which he said had been made in anger.
Stressing that he had deep respect for Agyapong, he said the MP played a crucial role in helping the NPP secure the 2016 victory, adding that his latest criticism of the party was inspired by frustration and anger at the conduct of some party folks.
Agyapong made the suggestion of "unfair" electoral practice last week, as he lambasted the NPP and the Akufo-Addo administration for failing to give a contract, despite what he said was his immense financial contribution to the party.
He condemned the conduct of some party members who he said were selfishly seeking to enrich themselves without regard for the welfare of other party members.
Agyapong, in a fiery speech on an Accra radio station, angrily claimed that some influential figures in government had threatened his businesses and warned him to keep quiet or forget about receiving government contracts.
He said before those unnamed figures would succeed in collapsing his businesses, he would destroy the NPP.
