Hon Kennedy Agyepong, former member of Parliament for Assin Central has made it clear that,he will openly campaign for the NPP in election 2024 only if Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, energy minister is picked as a running mate to partner Dr Mahamodu Bawumia.

According to him,all those people lobbying for the running mate position in the NPP, especially, those in the Ashanti Region are ungrateful and selfish with the exception of Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh.

Comments passed by the maverick former Assin Central MP and Former New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer runner-up about Energy Minister Matthew Opoku Prempeh is trending online weeks after he said it.

The video footage of an interview by the former Assin Central MP during an appearance on Time FM in the Ashanti Region shows the defeated NPP flagbearer praising Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh popularly known as NAPO.

 

The video comes in the wake of calls by the rank and file of the New Patriotic Party on Social and Traditional Media urging the selection of Napo as NPP running mate for election 2024.

According to Kennedy Agyapong, one very grateful person he knows is Napo after the latter failed to engaged in campaign of insults against him despite supporting Vice President Mahmoud Bawumia against him.

Kennedy Agyapong revealed how he fought for Napo to be nominated Energy Minister with only two portfolios to go.

“One person who is most grateful is Napo. He is a very grateful human being. He has been good to me. He gave me job at ministry of education. He gave me Obiri Yeboah school job” He said.

“You know Akufo-Addo he really likes me a lot but sometimes me I am ear strong… so we went to do ministerial nomination and it was left with only two and we tried to put people there.” Kennedy Agyapong revealed.

“It was left with Transport and Energy. I went with the current transport minister. So I told President Akufo-Addo to give it to Napo. So the transport minister went to Napo and said Napo what have you done for Kennedy Agyapong? We went to the President and he was fighting them to make you Energy Minister. NAPO replied him that Kennedy Agyapong is somebody that if you do any little good to him, he appreciates” Kennedy Agyapong said.

The video which appeared to have been taken weeks ago is going viral after the 2024 NPP flagbearership race.
