Aspiring New Patriotic Party flagbearer, Kennedy Agyapong, and four others have been referred to the party’s disciplinary committee for misconducting themselves during the just-ended Super Delegates Conference.
The four are; Mr. Raphael Patrick Sarfo, Mr. Charles Dokyi Yaw-Addo, Mr. Musa Sulemana and Mr. Hopeson Yaovi Adorye.
The General Secretary of the NPP, Justin Kodua Frimpong has stressed that this was a direct response to evidence, including video and photographic materials, which suggest potential violations of the provisions outlined in Article 3(5)(A) of the party’s constitution and a potential misconduct under Article 4(7) during Saturday’s special delegates conference that shortlisted five presidential candidates.
A statement signed by the NPP General Secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong on Sunday (Aug 27), stated that Mr Agyapong will be summoned before the Disciplinary Committee to explain his threats. His allegation was that President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia had a hand in the “chasing” out of his agent from the polling station at North East during the election.
This comes after the Assin Central MP was captured on camera promising to deliver “a showdown” to President Akufo-Addo and his vice, Dr. Bawumia after his polling agent was allegedly chased into a room by angry delegates.
Hopeson Adorye on his part had also alleged in a live radio and television interview that the Chief of Staff was sitting in an office at the party headquarters during the election and was paying monies to delegates.
“In accordance with Article 10(7)(5) of the NPP Constitution, the above persons mentioned will be referred to the Party’s Disciplinary Committee. This is a direct response to evidence, including video and photographic materials, which suggests potential violations of the provisions outlined in Article 3(5)(A) of the Party’s Constitution and potential misconduct under Article 4(7).
“Emphasis must also be placed on the fact that Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, in accordance with the above-mentioned constitutional provisions, will also be summoned before the Disciplinary Committee of the Party to provide responses and further details to the accusations and threats he made against certain personalities in a video that has since gone viral on social media and mainstream media.”
