– It’s Very Clear
… As He Will Reveal How He Stole The 2016 Elections
President Nana Akufo-Addo has made it abundantly clear that firebrand Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, his party’s MP for Assin Central, is a fight that he will carefully never pick.
In spite of veiled threats by Ken Agyapong to expose a supposed illegitimacy of the Presidency of Akufo-Addo if he is pushed to the wall, the President refused to use his maiden encounter with the media to address the questions that Mr. Agyapong has dangled over his electoral victory in 2016.
Yesterday, when veteran journalist, Nana Aba Anamoah, of GH-One Television, took the initiative to raise the Ken Agyapong question with the President, Nana Akufo-Addo conveniently chose to let sleeping dogs lie.
“I know Ken, he and myself have been in the same political party for a long time…that is Ken for you,” the President said.
Even though Nana Aba Anamoah had inferred to the general fact of Ken Agyapong being a bee in the bonnet of the Akufo-Addo government, she had specifically raised Mr. Agyapong’s recent say-so to voters in the Central Region that the President has discriminated against the region by refusing to appoint even a single ambassador from the region.
Ken Agyapong had also revealed that the Akufo-Addo government has dilly-dallied about appointing MPs from the region on to Boards of public corporations.
However, when the issue was pointed out to the President, he flatly denied being unfair to the Central Region, saying he does not accept that. Beyond that he said nothing.
Mr. President’s deliberate temperance of punches on Ken Agyapong has nourished speculations that the path of unrequited peace with Agyapong was chosen because the Assin Central MP indeed has the President by the jugular.
Readers would recall that a few weeks ago, an incensed Ken Agyapong had spilled the beans about the inside details of how Akufo-Addo became President, indicating the election had not been won genuinely.
Mr. Agyapong, who was defending the embattled Managing Director of BOST, Alfred Obeng Boateng, then caught in the thick of the 5million litre contaminated fuel scandal, threatened to blow the cover of the NPP if the President dared to sack Mr. Obeng Boateng.
“You people did not win the election fair and square, in case you have forgotten,” Mr. Agyapong had said.
The President subsequently refused to fire the BOST MD even though he was proved to have sold the 5million litres of the contaminated fuel to unlicensed companies that were allegedly owned by his business partner.
Yesterday, President Akufo-Addo made it clear that he will not fire Alfred Obeng Boateng, saying a discredited report that the BNI and the National Security had issued on the scandal was satisfactory to him and therefore had brought finality to the issue.
In the past, threats by Ken Agyapong to undo the Akufo-Addo government, if party thugs, who had attacked a court and overthrown proceedings to free partners in crime, were jailed, have led to the Attorney General filing nolle prosequi in the case.
