    I warned NPP members not to betray Ken Agyapong – Afenyo-Markin

    Effutu Member of Parliament and Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, has revealed that he cautioned fellow New Patriotic Party (NPP) members against betraying Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong, during his bid for the NPP flagbearership.

    Mr Afenyo-Markin emphasized the need for loyalty, citing Agyapong’s past support for many party members.

    “I told a lot of colleagues who were openly declaring that it’s not the right way because a lot of them had relationships with Kennedy. He had supported them and didn’t expect that they would openly campaign against him,” Afenyo-Markin said.

    Afenyo-Markin also highlighted Mr Agyapong’s forgiving nature, stating, “What many people don’t know is that man does not have an ego. Kennedy easily forgives, but he can go through serious emotions when he feels that you’ve betrayed him.”

    Mr Agyapong himself has expressed similar sentiments, indicating on the KSM show that he harbors no ill will towards those who did not support him but feels betrayed by some friends who spoke against him during the flagbearership contest.

    “It is not every MP who didn’t vote for me that I am angry at, no, everybody has a choice. But the very people who were my friends that I have helped to bring them to Parliament.”

    He stressed that it was the betrayal and personal attacks, not the Vice President‘s victory, that fueled his bitterness.

    “It’s not the betrayal, but the bad things they said about me, that is where I have the problem. So who says I’m not bitter? I am bitter, I am not because the vice president won, I am bitter because of the people that I have helped. If you are not going to vote for me, no problem but the insults. I can’t forgive them.”

    During the NPP Presidential Primaries, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong garnered 71,996 votes, representing 37.41% of the votes, while Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia emerged victorious with 118,210 votes, accounting for 61.47%, securing his position as the party’s flagbearer.
