Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has incurred the wrath of some National Executives of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), including Samuel Ofosu Ampofo who he alleged had a meeting in Kumasi to plot evil against the Electoral Commission (EC) over the compilation of the new voters register.
He alleged that on January 23, 2020, the MP for Asawase Alhaji Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka, National Chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, National Organizer Joshua Akamba, and Vice-Chairman Alhaji Said Sinare met in Kumasi to deliberate on ominous ways to destabilize the EC and create nationwide violence should the EV go-ahead to compile a new Voters Register.
He said “I was in Kumasi when they were holding their meetings now I hear the NDC says because Ogbaame Kennedy Agyapong they won’t meet in groups but move to individual homes saying, where 2 or 3 are gathered Kennedy is there. They don’t understand how I get information to expose them.”
Alhaji Sinare has flatly denied ever being in any meeting with his colleagues in Kumasi and for that matter called on Allah to strike the NPP MP dead. “I wasn’t in Kumasi on the said date, we haven’t met ever so for him to tell this big lie about me, I call on the Allah I serve to strike him dead, Sinare said.”
Speaking as a panel on Oman FM Kennedy Agyapong further said “at the said meeting the NDC gurus decided to use Fulanis to create confusion and widespread violence should the EC go ahead with the new register. They are also planning to use EC returning officers they would compromise to slow down the machine, run down the machine in an attempt to disenfranchise electorates in NPP strongholds.
According to the maverick politician, the NDC has no good thoughts or plans for Ghana because if it’s not then everything should go wrong. He accused Alhaji Sinare of bringing $80million dollars to bribe and influence prominent and loudmouth journalists, civil society Organizations and influential chiefs in an attempt to buy their conscience.
“Alhaji Sinare has brought in $80millionndollars for the NDC to use to disrupt the activities of the EC and shut the country for their own selfish interest. The same Alhaji Sinare has bought pickups to be given to some compromised EC officials to help them carry out their wicked intentions.”
This Sinare described as a figment of his imagination and the lie of the century because none of the allegations were true.
“The NDC is a Democratic Party and would do nothing untoward to disturb the peace and unity the country has enjoyed over the years. We will insist proper things are done in the interest of all and not a minority few just because they are in power. I wasn’t in Kumasi on 23 as he alleged, I haven’t been to Kumadi by extension Ashanti region in a long while so I don’t know where this false allegation is emanating from, Alhaji Sinare said.
I wish to call on Kennedy to apologize to me and all the names mentioned and the NDC or I go to court. I have already spoken to my lawyers.
