Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has revealed there is immense pressure on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to sack him from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for his vociferousness.
The MP who is pained by machinations and plots to sack him from the NPP has vowed to campaign against some MPs in the Eastern and Ashanti region in the 2020 elections.
Mr Agyapong has come under fire from some members of the NPP for his open criticism of the party. Some even dragged him to the disciplinary committee for him to be dealt with for denigrating the NPP and the presidency all to no avail.
Speaking on The Dialogue on NET 2 TV on Wednesday, 22 August 2018, Agyapong said there were too many ingrates and backbiting within the NPP and vowed to expose those people.
According to him, the party is repeating the past mistake that took them to opposition in 2009.
He said: “when I was in China they were writing letters to convince the president to sack me from the party, it was John Boadu who defended me…and I don’t blame the president because everyone knows he likes me and so persistently they tell him, he is over pampering me, why would he not support them to sack me from the party.
“President Kufuor during his time realised he had made mistakes but it was too late and this government is doing the same mistake. They are always calling my name, the pressure on him [Akufo-Addo] to sack me from the party, he called John Boadu to write a letter. I’m pained but I’m quiet, on the said day, I cried before Frema [Chief of Staff]. What hurt most is that Nana Akufo-Addo does not know what those people said about him before he became president and today, they are enjoying. I swear to God when I’m done in 2020, I’ll campaign against some people in the Ashanti and Eastern region.”
