The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) disciplinary committee has been presented with two video- based pieces of evidence that could lead to the disqualification of two prominent Presidential Aspirants, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong and Alan Kojo Kyeremanten.
In the case of Mr. Alan Kojo Kyeremanten, his campaign manager’ s confession during an interview has sent shockwaves through the NPP. According to the confession, delegates allegedly paid substantial sums of money as bribes to secure their votes for Kyeremanten’ s campaign. This revelation is a direct violation of the NPP constitution, which strictly prohibits vote buying. If proven guilty, this act could lead to his disqualification from the Presidential race, shaking the very foundation of his candidacy.
Similarly, the video capturing Hon. Kennedy Agyapong’ s post- presidential primary loss behavior has sent ripples of concern through the party ranks. The video shows Hon. Kennedy Agyapong angrily threatening President Nana Akufo Addo and Vice President Dr. Bawumia. This kind of gross misconduct is deemed unacceptable by the NPP, as it reflects poorly on the party’ s image and principles. If found guilty, this incident could lead to Agyapong’ s disqualification, leaving the party with the weighty decision of ensuring discipline and unity within their ranks.
Both individuals, Mr. Hopeson Adorye on behalf of Alan Kyeremanten and Hon. Kennedy Agyapong, have been summoned before the NPP disciplinary committee. This committee has been tasked with investigating the allegations, seeking clarity, and determining the veracity of the evidence presented.
Their testimonies and explanations will play a pivotal role in shaping the outcome of these cases, which hold significant implications for the NPP and its Presidential race.
As the NPP grapples with these recent developments, the importance of upholding the party’ s constitution, values, and principles cannot be overstated.
