Kennedy Agyapong’s campaign team has clarified the controversial outburst by their aspirant during the New Patriotic Party Special Delegates Congress.
During a press conference on Monday, August 28, 2023, Agyapong’s campaign manager, Kwame Owusu, said there was no malice intended.
“The showdown is basically a decisive point of either a confrontation or a contest. In that regard, if it is addressed to the Vice President, it only then means that come November, no water what happens, he is going to be a victor.”

But Owusu said there was nothing to be worried about ahead of a possible hearing.
“They don’t call you because they are going to punish you or sanction you... We will be there to have a chat with them," he said.
YEN.com.gh reported that Agyapong was heard accusing the President and Vice President of chasing away one of his polling agents.
"I swear to God, President Akufo-Addo I will give you a showdown. Vice President, I will give you a showdown. You dare chase my agent and force him to lock up himself in a room. You will see what will happen... I swear I will challenge President Akufo-Addo anytime," Agyapong said.
