- Kennedy Agyapong has said he will back Dr Bawumia's 2024 presidential bid if he wins the flagbearer race cleanly
- He told Kessben TV that supporting Dr. Bawumia would be a tough call, however, he would do that if he is convinced that his victory is without blemish
- He also cautioned against attempts to destroy his reputation because he is making headway in the presidential race, warning he may never support the party again
One of the key contenders in the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primary, Kennedy Agyapong, has said he will support his main opponent, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, if he wins the polls genuinely.
Agyapong admits it will be a tough decision for him, but he will do the needful if he is unable to beat Dr Bawumia in the flagbearer race.
He made the comment when he spoke on the Twi-speaking TV channel, Kessben TV on September 2023.
“If the vice president emerges as the winner, I will back him. It will be difficult but I have no choice. But if they continue this way, I have a choice," he said in Twi.
He also disclosed that he may never the support again if the calculated attempt by some party folks to destroy his reputation continues.
"They have come up with the 10 sins of Kennedy Agyapong but if you look at all the things, they have listed, they were in support of President Akufo-Addo and the NPP.
"However, just because someone wants power, today all the times I defended the party have become the 10 sins of Ken Agyapong," he lamented.
