Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong expressed his significance within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) following his performance at the party’s presidential primary.
During a “Showdown” Thanksgiving party for his supporters and coordinators, Agyapong claimed that his second-place finish demonstrates that no major decisions can be made by the party without consulting him.
Despite losing to Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Agyapong thanked his campaign team and emphasized that he was “underestimated” before the primary.
“They underestimated us, but we’ve proven to them that we now control one-third of the NPP,” Mr. Agyapong said. “No major decision will be taken without consulting us.”
Mr. Agyapong highlighted that he had been underestimated by various individuals, including a pastor who had predicted that his best performance would be only 16%.
“There was this pastor who even said if I get more than 16 percent, he [pastor] should be killed,” Mr. Agyapong said. “But today, I am praying for that pastor, that God should grant him long life and he should not die soon.”
