A flagbearer hopeful of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kennedy Agyapong, has shared his two cents on the resignation of Alan Kyerematen from the party.
He claims that Alan Kyerematen lacks the will to endure the premeditated and deliberate mistreatment that some party members inflicted against him.
Similar intimidation techniques are being used against him and his supporters, Ken Agyapong added, just like they were against Alan Kyerematen. Nevertheless, he vowed to stick with the party and fight.
In an interview on Kings Radio in the US that 1Family Radio monitored, Ken Agyapong disclosed that President Akufo-Addo was likewise the target of such harassment years ago.
“Politicians don’t learn. What was done to Akufo-Addo that caused me to shed tears is what is being meted out to Alan and me,’’ he said.
“So much so that Alan did not have the courage to withstand it and has resigned.’’
He furthered, “NPP internal politics always becomes so violent; listening to how the boys (Delta Force) are lamenting, there is so much intimidation in the internal politics.’’
“When I was coming, I heard that some Delta Force members in the Ashanti Region had declared support for me. Now, I am getting calls that they are being intimidated with calls from high places,’’ Ken disclosed.
“How is it that internal politics have become threat-filled, especially targeting those who declare support for other candidates openly, when at the same time all ministers and other appointees are following the Vice President?”
“Yet you will call for unity after the election? Let’s be fair. Unity is the product of justice; if you want unity, let it be built on justice for all,’’ he added.
