Agyapong has not shied away from confrontations with his own party members and fellow MPs in the past.

The firebrand legislator recently threatened to expose alleged corruption on the part of Bantama MP Francis Asenso-Boakye.

At the time, Agyapong was in Bantama campaigning for his brother Ralph Kwame Agyapong ahead of the January 27, 2024, NPP primaries, which he lost.

Agypaong also threatened to release evidence of corruption if Asenso-Boakye won the primary.

During his bid for the NPP flagbearship, Agyapong was very critical of his government's performance over the last 8 years.

The Assin Central MP is currently in his final term in Parliament after deciding not to seek reelection alongside 17 other NPP MPs.

Alleged corruption in NPP primaries reported that the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme Kofi Ofosu Nkansah was invited over claims he used state funds for his political ambitions.
