In the coming days, the NPP’s Disciplinary Committee will hear from the MP for Assin Central, Ken Agyapong, regarding accusations and threats he made against Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and President Akufo-Addo during the party’s Special Delegates Conference on Saturday.

The fiery politician was shown in a viral video threatening to name and shame the two politicians for allegedly inciting his agents to attack agent on Saturday.

Since then, a video showing Ken Agyapong in the midst of an intense phone call has gone viral. As heard in the video, Ken Agyapong says, “I’ll give them a lifetime showdown in this country. President Akufo-Addo and Vice President, I’ll give you all showdown. Why would you chase my agent away from the polling station and on what account? You would surely hear from me. I promise you that I’ll challenge Akufo-Addo anytime.”

Uncertainty surrounds the specifics of the purported altercation between Ken Agyapong’s agent and election officials.

In a statement issued on Sunday, August 27, 2023, the NPP General Secretary, Justin Kodua, stated that Ken Agyapong would be hauled before the party’s Disciplinary Committee.

The statement also disclosed that other persons including Raphael Patrick Sarfo, Charles Dokyi Yaw-Addo, Musa Sulemana, and Hopeson Yaovi Adorye, would also be referred to the committee.

“This is a direct response to evidence, including video and photographic materials, which suggest potential violations of the provisions outlined in Article 3(5)(A)(1)(2)(3) and (4) of the Party’s Constitution and a potential misconduct under Article 4(7),” it stated.

“The NPP remains committed to upholding democratic values, accountability, and the highest standards of conduct. We are confident that this disciplinary process will be conducted with fairness, transparency, and impartiality” the statement added.
