In a bizarre turn of political events, a volunteer group passionately advocating for the candidature of Hon Kennedy Agyapong has urged the Assin Central Member of Parliament to ditch the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and embark on a solo journey to the 2024 elections as an independent candidate. The group, which seems to have a keen sense of political irony, claims that the NPP has treated Agyapong unfairly by not hoisting him to the coveted position of flagbearer in their recent internal elections.
In what can only be described as a plea tinged with political heartbreak, the volunteers argue that Agyapong’s popularity among the grassroots is so astronomical that it surpasses the limits of Earth’s atmosphere. According to their highly scientific analysis, Agyapong is not just a candidate; he’s a political supernova waiting to explode onto the national stage.
At a press conference held in Kumasi, the group, adorned in homemade “Kennedy for President” capes and carrying oversized campaign banners, declared, “We want him to become the next president of this country. The reason is that we, the volunteer groups who campaigned across the length and breadth of the country, have realized that the New Patriotic Party has been unfair to you as a candidate.”
Their grievances include the alleged disappointment of not seeing Agyapong crowned as the NPP’s flagbearer, a role they believe he was born to play. In a Shakespearean twist of political tragedy, they claim the NPP has let down not just Agyapong but the entire nation by not allowing him to lead the party to the 2024 elections.
With all the drama unfolding, it remains unclear whether Agyapong himself is aware of this impassioned plea or if he’s considering a solo flight into the turbulent skies of independent candidacy. The group, however, appears convinced that Agyapong’s destiny lies outside the familiar blue confines of the NPP, and they stand ready to be the wind beneath his independent wings.
Political analysts are now eagerly waiting to see if Agyapong will choose to navigate the uncharted waters of independent candidacy, just like his friend Alan Kyeremateng or if this call for separation is just another episode in the ongoing soap opera of Ghanaian politics. One thing is for certain – the political landscape is never short of surprises, and with Agyapong potentially going solo, the 2024 elections might just be the most entertaining yet.
