Members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have been urged to maintain calm over the newly constituted National Executive Committee of the National Democratic Congress by Kennedy Agyapong, the Member of Parliament for Assin Central (NDC).
Kennedy Agyapong asserts that the NDC has paraded propagandists and that the NPP has the skills and expertise necessary to put out the NDC’s propaganda fires.
Kennedy Agyapong described a personal incident he had with the NDC in which a large sum of money was wired to a bank account of his that was no longer needed. This happened under President Kufuor’s administration.
Kennedy Agyapong asserts that the NDC intended to use the money against him and that’s why it came from them.
He forewarned that any misinformation campaign launched by the NDC this time will be defeated by the in power NPP.
“There is no need for concern over Asiedu Nketiah and Fifi Kwetey. We will confront them because they are merely propagandists. I can guarantee that we will deal with them. Some time ago, they disseminated some misinformation. The Kufuor regime deposited a sizable sum of money into a bank account I held. However, I had more money than that. They circulated misleading information despite the fact that I had never saved at that bank.
“This time, we have to fight back and not sit there and allow them. We are not going to allow that because if you give them the space, the lie will become the truth. I assure everybody not to panic. If they come with that their tactics, we’ll beat them with home sense,” he said.
Kennedy Agyapong’s statement resonates with the position of the New Patriotic Party.
At a press conference on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, the General Secretary of the NPP, Justin Kodua Frimpong assured of the readiness of the party to battle with the NDC.
“We are ready to engage them on politics of issues, and not propaganda and deceit. We invite them to debate us on the records of good governance to enable the good people of Ghana to make informed decisions in 2024,” he said.
At the NDC Congress held on December 17, 2022, Johnson Asiedu Nketia is now the Chairman of the NDC whiles Mr Fifi Fiavi Kwetey clinched the General Secretary position.
The Delegates also settled on Joseph Yammin as the National Organizer.
