General News of Friday, 7 July 2017
The leader of Glorious Word Ministry, Rev Isaac Owusu-Bempah has denied claims by the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) won the 2016 polls through dubious means.
According to him, Mr Kennedy Agyapong has no secrets regarding the victory of the party but rather made those comments out of pain and bitterness.
He has, therefore, attributed victory of the NPP to the Lord.
“Kennedy Agyapong threatened to announce how the NPP won the 2016 election because he is in pain but I don’t believe the fact that he has secrets to share to the public because I know he wouldn’t do anything to hurt his party,” he said on Accra based okay fm.
The outspoken MP has threatened to release full details of how the NPP won the elections if he is continuously undermined by some individuals in the party.
He has vowed to bring down the party, before he is disgraced.
According to him, some persons planning his downfall have consistently asked him to shut up before he can get contracts in the Nana Akufo-Addo’s administration warning that he will never kowtow to them.
Speaking on Accra-based Oman FM, the maverick politician said “If you are not careful with people who helped you or us to come to power and give them this reward…… there is this boy called Siriboe whose father is a council of state member. How much did his father pay? You are there undermining him….NPP boy
“I mean those NPP people who have vowed to collapse my business saying they will bring me down…If they joke the things I will say In Ghana……the way we won the elections. We did not win the elections on fair grounds. I am warning them for the last time. If they say they will bring me down, I will be the first to bring the NPP down before I am disgraced.”
But reacting to the issue, Rev Isaac Owusu-Bempah believes the Assin Central MP was forced to make those comments because he was hurt.
“Kennedy is one man I respect a lot because of his selflessness for his party. He played a major part in the 2016 election and the victory of the party so he wouldn’t come out and disclose issues unless he is pushed” he added.
This notwithstanding, Rev Isaac Owusu-Bempah maintained that NPP won the elections on fair grounds.
