Kennedy Ohene Agyapong’s campaign team has clarified that his remark during Saturday’s special delegates conference regarding a “showdown” with President Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu was not a threat.

Agyapong, a flagbearer candidate for the New Patriotic Party, was shown on tape making a phone conversation in which he threatened the President and Vice President with a “showdown” after learning that one of his operatives had been attacked in the North East.

The Assin Central Member of Parliament, who finished second in the elections, was subject to disciplinary action as a result of this raising questions and concerns.

Agyapong’s campaign manager, Kwame Owusu, claimed during a news conference that the term “showdown” was just intended to suggest that Agyapong will triumph in the elections on November 4 regardless of any alleged intimidation.

“Whether or not the confrontation was directed towards the Vice President or not, are you concerned about the meaning of confrontation? Because I think the showdown is basically a decisive point of either a confrontation or a contest. In that regard, if it is addressed to the Vice president it only then meant that come November no matter what happens he is going to be a victor.”

“So that’s a showdown, a definitive contest and confrontation… It’s nothing to worry about; it’s simply plain English delivered in a different way, so it’s not a danger, he said.

Agyapong is prepared to assist with the disciplinary procedure, according to Owusu as well.

According to the official results released by the Electoral Commission, Bawumia received 629 votes, or 68.15% of all valid votes cast across the 17 polling places, to win the race. Kennedy Agyapong, the MP for Assin Central, finished in second with 132 votes (14.3%), followed by the former trade minister Kyerematen with 95 votes (10.29%).

With 36 votes (3.9%), the former agricultural minister Owusu Afriyie Akoto took the fourth place, followed by Francis Addai-Nimoh and Boakye Agyarko, who each received nine votes (0.98%), forcing a run-off for the fifth spot.
