Member of Parliament for Assin Central and flagbearer aspirant for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has threatened to give President Akufo-Addo a “showdown” for an alleged anomaly he claims to have been orchestrated by the President.

Mr. Agyapong says the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who is also an aspirant in the ongoing super delegates conference will equally receive his share of the “showdown.”

In a video captured by OnuaOnline’s representative at the University of Cape Coast where the poll is taking place in the Central region, Kennedy Agyapong was found speaking angrily on a phone, threatening to challenge the President for allegedly orchestrating for his polling agent to be chased out of the voting centre.

“I swear to God, President Akufo-Addo I will give you showdown. Vice President I’ll give you showdown for chasing my agent to run into a room. You will hear what will happen here. Yes, I swear to God I will challenge President Akufo-Addo anytime,” livid Kennedy Agyapong is heard saying in a video in Twi.

Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, the minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, has, meanwhile, advised the candidates to look beyond the party to support whoever will be chosen on November after today’s election to ensure the NPP breaks the 8 in 2024.

“Everyone of the 10 are well qualified to lead our country. Then there is also the need to look beyond, who has the better chance if he wins will help us break the 8 and I believe my candidate will.

“Even the 10 people understand that only one person out of the 10 will win this election. Two people can’t share that spot and therefore everyone going into the race knows that they stand the chance but it is only one person who will win. If you do not win, you rally around the winner to prosecute the agenda to break the 8 to get back into government on the 7th of January,” she advised.

The NPP is organising  a super delegates conference to reduce the number of persons seeking to become the flagbearer for the 2024 elections from 10 to 5. After today’s exercise, there will be another conference with a larger collegiate to elect who leads the party in 2024.
