Ashanti Regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, alias Chairman Wontumi; has disclosed source of the information that caused Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong to go 'into a fit.'

Agyapong angrily threatened a showdown with president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia citing an attack on his agent in the Central Region during the August 26, 2023 super delegates conference.

Wontumi, in an interview with Metro TV revealed that it was Kwame Owusu, a former boss of the Ghana Maritime Authority, who called Kennedy to inform him about the said development.

"Something happened in the Northern Region and the people who were there just called Kennedy to tell him, it was specifically my uncle, Kwame Owusu… he called Kennedy and you know at a time like this his energy will be high.

"And you are not there but called him to say this what has happened, meanwhile we have police and agents there, so, why do you have to talk?" he stressed.

He said Kwame Owusu, who was in Kumasi, was talking to Ken in intervals of five to 10 minutes in his capacity as a campaign lead for the Assin Central MP, giving updates from across the country.

Outcome of August 26 primary:

As the end of the August 26 super delegates vote, official results showed a big victory for Vice President Dr Bawumia ahead of the main primary in November.
