NAPO Dismisses Threat From Alan Cash; Insists Ken Agyapong Rather Poses Threat To NPP



Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia

In a recent address to the youth of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti Region, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the Minister for Energy and Member of Parliament for Manhyia South, has categorically rejected the notion that the Movement for Change, founded by former NPP flagbearer hopeful Alan Kyerematen, poses any significant threat to the ruling party.

Dr. Prempeh, commonly known as NAPO, downplayed the influence of Alan Kyerematen’s movement, symbolized by a butterfly, by drawing an analogy between beauty and effective governance. “We don’t govern a nation with beauty. There is no animal more beautiful than the butterfly, but because it can’t govern, it dies after just two days,” he asserted.

Contrary to concerns raised by some within the party, NAPO expressed confidence in the unity and resilience of the NPP, emphasizing that the party rewards loyalty and does not tolerate discrimination. He underscored the importance of party members standing together in the face of challenges and internal dynamics.

Moreover, Dr. Prempeh redirected attention to another influential figure within the NPP, highlighting that if there is any individual the party should be wary of, it is the Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong. Referring to the recent presidential primaries within the party, NAPO pointed out that Agyapong secured over 33.5% of the votes, indicating a significant level of support.

“Kennedy Agyapong was the one that over 33.5% voted for when we recently conducted elections. But even with him, he emphatically stated after a week that he will not leave the NPP today or tomorrow. He even admitted that the election was free and fair,” Dr. Prempeh stated during the conference.

It is noteworthy that Alan Kyerematen resigned from the NPP and withdrew from the presidential race in November, citing intimidation and threats against himself and his supporters. He also accused the party leadership and the government of favoring Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in the flagbearer contest.

In the midst of these developments, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh’s address aimed to reassure the party’s youth and underscore the NPP’s commitment to internal cohesion, loyalty, and democratic principles.
