Member of Parliament(MP) for Assin Central and one of the leading aspirants for the flagbearership race in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has described his friend Benard Antwi Boasiako as a shameful human being.
Kennedy Agyapong believes that Wontumi and other Ashanti Regional Chairmen who openly supported John Boadu should resign from their positions because they are part of the reason for disunity in the NPP
Kennedy Agyapong was speaking to the media after the counting of the ballot cast was done and the election winners were declared.
“Wontumi should cool down, he should cool down because he doesn’t own this political party. Yes because the way he was behaving and whipping all Chairmen to raise their hands reluctantly. All of them have been embarrassed if it were somewhere all the Chairmen would have resigned.
I’ve learnt my lesson that the disunity in the party stems from the fact that leaders in the party openly support so this time I said to get unity in the party I’m not going to openly support anybody. If you’re good and the people believe in your work, they will vote for you. So I stayed away.
But for the first time in the history of NPP political party you see 15 chairmen raising their hands because they’ve been whipped. They should go and learn sense that if you’re party chairman and you starve your people down there you cannot change their minds and that is the decision we have taken,” he said.
