Ken Agyapong Eats Humble Pie…Appears Before NPP’s Disciplinary Committee

Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, the Member of Parliament for Assin Central has confirmed to NEAT 100.9 FM that he has received summons to appear before the Disciplinary Committee (DC) of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) and will comply accordingly.

According to the out-spoken MP, he is being requested to appear before the party DC to answer to allegations he had made to the effect that the NPP’s National Executives, led by Jake Otanka Obetsebi-Lamptey are incompetent and corrupt.

Hon. Agyapong also threatened to quit the NPP and form a new party, which would be named, People’s Liberation Party (PLP) if the Chairman, Mr. Obetsebi-Lamptey regained his seat.

The Assin Central MP expressed the desire that all of the national executives would lose their seats, and revealed that he had set aside $5 million to campaign and make sure none of the sitting National Executives is re-elected.

This was met with mixed reactions by party faithfuls, with a section hailing him, while others called for a swift disciplinary action against him.

But Hon. Kennedy Agyapong again threatened to turn down any invitation by the NPP’s DC because it is constituted by some of the National Executives he had described as “incompetent and corrupt”.

However, in a telephone interview with NEAT FM on Tuesday, Ken Agyapong, seen as one of the biggest financiers of the largest opposition party disclosed that he was on his way to the NPP Headquarters to meet the Disciplinary Committee.

It is believed that Hon. Agyapong was questioned on the numerous allegations he had made against the party hierarchy, deemed as ‘bringing the name of the party to disrepute’ but one thing political analysts will be waiting patiently to see is, if the DC would employ the same alacrity with which it dealt with cases of similar nature.
