There have been more revelations about the dispute between the former president John Agyekum Kufour and the outspoken Assin Central MP, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong by the Host of Good Morning Ghana, Paul Adom Otchere.
Adom Otchere said the actual reason behind the friction between Kufour and the honorable was rather an issue related to a business with Kufour’s son and a man by name, Kwame Poku which went bad and as such induced Kufour’s son to seek court action.
“The court agreed with President Kufuor’s son, where bailiffs had to go to Kwame Poku’s house in Tema to go and take his property to pay for the debt,” Adom-Otchere said on Good Evening Ghana on Thursday, June 25, 2020.
He further went on to reveal that, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong had been tipped by journalists from Adom FM with the information about the action taken by the former president’s son and as an NPP MP who was equally worried about Kufour’s name, he decided to inform the latter of which he misunderstood the Assin Central MP.
Apparently, the president had misunderstood the MP and thought “Kennedy Agyapong was on the side of the businessman, which was Kwame Poku, against President Kufuor’s son.”
However, it was otherwise as Kennedy Agyapong supported Kufour’s son and as such did not want his name or the father’s to be abused by the media.
“Communication did not work. Kennedy Agyapong was not able to tell President Kufuor that this is what I stood for; I didn’t want your name to be destroyed, so, I was telling you to tell your son to hold, even me Kennedy Agyapong, I can settle this matter,” Paul Adom-Otchere opined.
“He proceeded to settle it and even paid some money to the parties that needed to be paid but it looks like President Kufuor’s view of the matter; the narration that was given to him was that Kennedy Agyapong was against his son in this business. So, that’s what brought the confusion.” Paul Adom Otchere stressed.
The fall-out between Hon. Kennedy Agyapong and the president was not about politics but business which made the president to feel disappointed about the Assin MP whom he felt he had given an opportunity.
