In a viral tape that circulated on social media all day Tuesday, November 29, Agyapong can be heard allegedly speaking to a party crowd as the audience applauds him.

He further asserts that the only way to overcome the current economic difficulties is to transfer control of the nation from those who repeatedly hypothesise about how to resolve problems to those with actual, hands-on expertise.

How do you continue to be a vice president while the finance minister abuses you? How is it that a finance minister can intimidate me if I am a vice president? You then state that you were not given the chance when you return.

The outspoken politician who aspires to lead the ruling New Patriotic Party is heard asking, “What else do you want us to offer you to prove that you are effective?”

“Please, I’m telling you the whole truth to prevent any mistakes on your part. If we don’t alter the same face that has been providing us with economic theories, what can we do to change this country and the way the government is suffering from this economy?

The exchange rate was four cedis and twenty pesewas at the time you said, “Tell us when your fundamentals are weak, the exchange rate will reveal you.

He repeated, “What message are you going to offer Ghanaians again? As of Friday, it was 15 cedis to the dollar.”

Although GhanaWeb is unable to independently confirm the exact time and place of the recording, it appears that Agyapong was speaking to the party faithful while on a tour across the nation as the presidential flagbearer.

Businessman Agyapong, who has assets across a variety of industries, admitted that the recent depreciation of the cedi had caused him to lose a significant amount of money. He estimated his losses at $12 million and counting.

When criticising the previous government for poor economic management, one of Bawumia’s most well-known digs at the John Mahama administration was, “If the fundamentals are weak, the exchange rate will reveal you.”

In the run-up to the 2024 General Elections, Agyapong is one of the prominent candidates vying to succeed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as NPP leader.

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia and Trade and Industry Minister Alan Kyerematen are among the other people who are rumoured to be interested in carrying the flag. The primaries will be held the following year.
