Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, a flagbearer hopeful for the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) , has revealed the contribution he played in helping the party win the majority in Parliament.
Before the party won the majority, he said he had to pay a debt of a million Ghana cedis owed by the then-Constituency Chairman of Fomena.
Interacting with NPP delegates in Tema, Ken Agyapong said that it was only via his involvement and the donation of GHc 1 million that Asiamah Amoako’s condition, which led to him joining the NPP in the House, was fulfilled. Asiamah Amoako is currently the second deputy speaker of parliament.
“If not for me, the NPP will not have majority in parliament after the 2020 elections. Because after the election, NDC had 137 parliamentarians, NPP also had 137 and there was one independent candidate.
“We wanted the independent candidate to join us and the condition he gave was that the NPP chairman for Adansi Fomena must resign before he joins us.
“I spoke to the Adansi Fomena NPP chairman and he told me that he will have resigned but a rural bank, he owes GH¢1.5 million will take him to court if he is no longer the chairman of the party in the constituency,” he said in Twi.
Ken Agyapong added that he paid GH¢1 million of the debt of the Adansi Fomena NPP Chairman, which led him to resign, for Asiamah Amoako to join NPP MPs to form the majority caucus.
The MP for Fomena, Andrew Asiamah Amoako, who is an independent MP, joined the NPP side in parliament so that they will become the majority in the House after the 2020 elections.
