Member of Parliament of the Bantama Constituency, Francis Asenso-Boakye has described a statement made by aspiring flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Honorable Kennedy Agyapong as “regrettable” in his fresh social media post on Sunday, September 17, 2023.

The MP for Assin North remarked that a certain Minister of State has told delegates to vote for Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and that statement is “regrettable”.

My attention has been drawn to some regrettable remarks made by Hon Kennedy Agyepong, Member of Parliament for Assin Central and aspiring presidential candidate for the New Patriotic Party at a rally held in Accra on Saturday, 16th September, 2023.

The said remarks are to the effect that a certain minister of state from Bantama has told Delegates to vote for His Excellency, Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to be elected presidential candidate of the Party so as to become more attractive to Ghanaians after 4 years of H.E John Mahama’s imminent Presidency. Even though he did not explicitly mention my name (purposely), I’m currently the only minister of state from Bantama, so I reasonably assume he’s referring to me.

This blatant lie is not only ludicrous, but also politically puerile. The NPP Government is deeply committed to working hard to improve the wellbeing of Ghanaians and by so doing, earn their continued goodwill.

The false attribution by Hon Ken Agyepong is clearly a mischievous lie deliberately made with the sole intention to cause disaffection for me, sully my good standing within the Party and neutralize whatever leverage I have on the Delegates.

Bawumia, Kennedy Agyapong pick top positions in NPP Super Delegates Congress

My view on the NPP presidential primary is widely known to the party members and it’s that; Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia is the extraordinary candidate that the NPP needs to break the ‘eight’.
