I’m very bitter, I can never forgive Bibiani MP – Kennedy Agyapong talks betrayal

New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer hopeful, Kennedy Agyapong, has opened up about bitterness he harbors against some Members of Parliament, particularly those he claims to have helped in the past.

He alleged that the said MPs have turned their backs on him as he vies for the NPP flagbearer position.

“I am very bitter that if I had not contested, I wouldn’t have known my enemies, these MPs, the help that I have given them,” he lamented.

He singled out one MP, Alfred Obeng-Boateng, representing the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai constituency in the Western North Region, whom he claims to have personally assisted and campaigned for in the past.

Agyapong expressed his disappointment, saying that despite his support, Obeng-Boateng is now campaigning against him.

“Last week one of them that I have helped, I will never forgive him but after November 4th he will see what will happen. You see, if you are not even going to vote for me, you have a choice and I don’t have a problem.

“But the people in his constituency know that I went there to campaign for him, and this man picks up a phone and calls delegates, telling them not to vote for Kennedy Agyapong, but to vote for number two on the ballot. And then one of them asked him why, and he said Kennedy Agyapong doesn’t know how to talk,” he added.

He continued “I campaigned for him in Bibiani; I am not afraid of him, Alfred Obeng. I left his place at 1:00 a.m. for this man to tell me that I don’t know how to talk. I can never forgive that guy.”

He also disclosed that when Obeng-Boateng faced challenges in his career, he provided support, stating, “When they sacked him from BOST, he was always in my house till about 1:00 am, consoling him.

“If it was in America, they would say he has depression. And this man, if you won’t vote for me, that’s not a problem, but for you to go and tell your delegates that Kennedy Agyapong doesn’t know how to talk, I leave him to God.”

Kennedy will contest for the NPP flagbearership slot along with three other contenders including Dr Bawumia, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto and Francis Addai-Nimoh.

The NPP has slated November 4, 2023, to elect a successor to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as leader of the party.
