New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer aspirant Kennedy Agyapong has cautioned the party's National Council about intimidation ahead of the party's presidential primaries.
The Assin Central lawmaker threatened to fight against any attempts to cower him while addressing an audience at his campaign ahead of the November 4 NPP primaries to be organised at all the 276 constituencies nationwide and the Party Headquarters, Asylum Down, Accra.
The lawmaker's fierce remarks
Agyapong, who has retained his number one position on the ballot paper for the party's presidential primary, said he's not as gentle as Alan John Kyerematen, whom the National Council vilified over concerns he raised.
"I am not like Alan, who is so gentle. That hooliganism at the National Council; Alan raised concern and was insulted; Boakye Agyarko spoke and was insulted; I spoke and was vilified," he said before repeating a crowd chant, "something is about to happen."
The outspoken legislator detailed why he is the best candidate to lead the governing NPP to victory and retain power in the 2024 general election.
Speaking to YEN.com.gh, Convention People's Party (CPP) youth leader Chairman Jerry backed the actions of Kennedy Agyapong.
''I support Hon Kennedy Agyapong's actions. I know him personally, and he would never lie to me. He has a lot of underground knowledge; many people who work for him provide him with much information, so he understands what's happening.
''Many people are unhappy, so he should caution them because some camps, like Alan John Kyerematen's people. He should warn the leadership ahead of the November 4 election so that he foils any agenda by the party leadership to get the delegates to vote for Bawumia,'' he told YEN.com.gh.
