Flagbearer aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kennedy Agyapong has disclosed that he was throwing shots at Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia when he said the party lost the 2024 General Elections in 2022.
The Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP) over the weekend led a ‘Showdown Walk’ in the Greater Accra Region.
Addressing the huge crowd that followed him, Ken Agyapong said if the NPP will go to opposition after the 2024 General Election it would be as a result of the huge depreciation of the cedi last year.
Speaking to Kessben TV in an interview on Monday night, the Assin Central MP said Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is the reason why the NPP will lose next year’s election.
“Whether you like it or not once you vote for Bawumia you can’t beat Mahama….Let them say whatever they want. I was referring to Bawumia when I said the NPP lost the 2024 General election in 2022. Because it was Bawumia who told us if the fundamentals are weak the exchange rate will expose you. Have I said something like that? When I talk some NPP people and some Ghanaians don’t want to listen,” Ken Agyapong said.
He argued that if in opposition Dr. Bawumia accused the NDC of incompetence when $1 was trading for GHS4, then the Vice President should admit that the fundamentals are rotten under the NPP when $1 is trading at GHS12.
Being among the businessmen who lost money due to the depreciation of the cedi in 2022, he said he won’t keep quiet and pretend things are well.
According to him, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia must do something to address the cedi depreciation before the 2024 general elections to prove he is capable of leading the party.
