Asamoah Gyamfi, a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) communications team has taken a swipe at the Member of Parliament for Assin Central in the Central region, describing him as a “liability to the party”.
According to him, the unguarded utterances of Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong contributed to the NPP’s defeat in the last general elections.
“..Ken Agyapong’s call on Ashantis to kill Ewes cost us 2% of our total votes in the last general elections. This makes him a liability to us, than an asset,” he said.
Though the Assin Central MP is believed to have single handedly bankrolled the NPP 2012 campaign, Asamoah Gyamfi questioned the sense in dolling out money to the party, with the aim of helping to achieve a set target, only to be derailed by unguarded statements.
“…If you give us GHc10m and you go on to make us lose through your comments, then you should keep you money,” he fumed in the studios of NEAT FM .
Mr. Gyamfi made this assertion during a panel discussion on the recent happenings in the NPP and also the threat by Hon. Ken Agyapong to cross carpets to the NPP’s bitterest opponent if nothing is done to restore the party’s image.
“I would use all my resources to support the NDC and those with selfish interests can run the party the way they like. The Ashantis can decide to keep the party and make it their property,” the out spoken MP is quoted to have said.
But the NPP Communicator believes his comments always go to dent the image to the party he claims to love and that makes him a liability to the NPP.
