The maverick Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has revealed that there was enormous pressure on President Akufo-Addo to sack him from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for being outspoken.
Kennedy Agyapong, who was emotionally speaking on The Dialogue on NET 2 TV on Wednesday, 22 August 2018, said he’s grieved by schemes to sack him from the NPP and has sworn to campaign against some MPs in the Eastern and Ashanti region in the 2020 elections.
Mr. Kennedy Agyapong has come under immense fire from some members of the ruling 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.
Kennedy Agyapong said there are too many opportunists and calumny within the NPP and vowed to expose those people.
According to him, the NPP is repeating the past mistake that took them to the 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 realized 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”, Kennedy Agyapong added.
