Former General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwabena Agyei Agyepong has dismissed a claim by flagbearer hopeful Kennedy Agyapong that he once donated $3 million to the party.
According to Kwabena Agyepong, who is also a flagbearer hopeful, the claim by the Assin Central Member of Parliament cannot be verified.
He told Peace FM on Wednesday morning that the outspoken legislator is distorting history.
"In 1992 $3 million would have been a huge sum of money to donate to a party. It is not true. I was there at the founding of the party and I am telling you it is not true.

"It is not possible for the party to receive a donation of $3 million dollars and people like us would not hear about it. It is not true. He should stop distorting history," Kwabena Agyepong said in Twi.
“I Paid $3 million loan, bought vehicles”, Ken Agyapong claims
Ken Agyapong made the claim in January 2023 when he responded to a comment by party founder Dr Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe.
Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe had questioned Ken Agyapong's contribution to the NPP.
Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe had called Agyapong a noisemaker and suggested that the Assin Central MP has not done enough to warrant his desire to become the party's flagbearer.
However, Ken Agyapong told Net 2 TV, his TV station, that he has been unwavering in his support for the party since 1991.
“NPP once went for a loan of US$3million through CAL Bank. My company used eight years to pay for the loan plus interest in 1992," he recounted to demonstrate his contribution to the party.
