Unrepentant New Patriotic Party (NPP) General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong, yesterday charged at persons he termed his detractors who want to end his political career prematurely, summoning them before God.

Kwabena is equally angry about media reports that he was eating fufu in Kumasi at the time an emergency Steering Committee meeting was going on at the NPP headquarters in Accra on Monday.

He couldn’t also understand why he was cartooned eating fufu in DAILY GUIDE, extending his anger to the newspaper.

He had told the media when he was called about the meeting that he was not aware of any meeting and that he was eating a bowl of fufu on that Monday. ‘How can the First Vice Chairman of a party cartoon his General Secretary eating fufu in a newspaper he owns? Is he seeking the wellbeing or destruction of the party?

‘Is it okay to call for a meeting early Monday morning when the General Secretary of the party is bereaved and at a funeral over the weekend?’ he fumed on Okay Fm, an Accra-based radio station.

However, on the radio station’smorning show programme hosted by Kwame Nkrumah Tikese, Kwabena Agyepong said indeed he knew about the meeting but he thought it was not important.

According to him, he had spoken to Nana Akufo-Addo, the NPP presidential candidate, on Sunday about the need to move the meeting to another day when the chairmen, Paul Afoko, would have come back from London, but they did not listen to him.

‘I spoke to Akufo-Addo for over 45 minutes and told him my piece of mind,’ Mr Kwabena Agyepong said arrogantly.

‘If those misbehaving are not careful, we will expose them as those destroying the party. And I believe God will deal with them as well,’ he charged.

‘Ever since I occupied the General Secretary position, it has been one issue or the other. They think they are destroying me but it is the party that will suffer as a result. I won massively despite all the terrible things people said about me. I’m a firm and strong politician so I intend to face those who are bent on destroying my political career. I’m issuing a caution to everybody,’ he fumed.

‘As the General Secretary of this party, you cannot even file at the Electoral Commission without my signature,’ he boasted.

His failure to attend the meeting, which preceded the ongoing vetting of parliamentary aspirants as well as his unilateral decision to give waivers to some aspirants without informing other members of the national executive, had created an impression on the minds of party faithful that he was running a one-man show.
