New Patriotic Party (NPP) stalwart Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has issued a salvo to the Ashanti Region Chairman of the party to stay calm in the face of internal elections.
The Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency said it was wrong for Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, and 15 other regional chairmen to openly declare support for a candidate.
“The signal is clear to every senior member of the party not to come openly and raise hands,” he said while speaking in an interview with Media General‘s Eric Mawuena Egbeta at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, July 17.
“The 15 chairmen and the Central Regional Chairman, where are the 16 chairmen? They should be ashamed of themselves because they couldn’t decide for the party.
“My brother Wontumi should cool down. He should cool down [because] he doesn’t own this party. He doesn’t at all. He has to cool down.”
He explained that Chairman Wontumi cajoled the other chairmen to raise hands openly to support some candidates.
“All of them have been embarrassed. If it had been anywhere, all the chairmen would resigned.”
NPP firebrand Ken Agyapong may have shared these sentiments after the election of Justin Kodua Frimpong as the General Secretary of the party.
Though official results are yet to be declared, supporters of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) boss are already jubilating over the outcome.
