I am bitter because people I supported badmouthed me during my campaign – ‘Hurt’ Ken Agyapong reveals –

Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, a former presidential candidate aspirant and Member of Parliament for Assin Central, has expressed his disappointment with the treatment he received during the 2023 New Patriotic Party (NPP) Presidential Primary.

In a yet-to-be aired interview with KSM on Pan Africa Television, he acknowledged the right of MPs to choose their preferred candidate but expressed particular hurt over the “insults” he endured from fellow MPs, especially those he considered close friends and whom he had supported financially in their parliamentary campaigns.

“It is not every MP who didn’t vote for me that I am angry at, no, everybody has a choice. But the very people who were my friends that I have helped to bring them to Parliament.”

He stressed that it was the betrayal and personal attacks, not the Vice President‘s victory, that fueled his bitterness.

“It’s not the betrayal, but the bad things they said about me, that is where I have the problem. So who says I’m not bitter? I am bitter, I am not because the vice president won, I am bitter because of the people that I have helped. If you are not going to vote for me, no problem but the insults. I can’t forgive them.”

During the NPP Presidential Primaries, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong garnered 71,996 votes, representing 37.41% of the votes, while Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia emerged victorious with 118,210 votes, accounting for 61.47%, securing his position as the party’s flagbearer.
