He said some members of the Akufo-Addo administration are destroying the country as well as the NPP.

Speaking in an interview on Kessben FM, Mr. Agyapong said he has doubts on the membership of some of the appointees of the President.

“I’m beginning to wonder if they are serving him and whether they have the country at heart.”

“I’m beginning to ask them, are they really true NPP people? Do they have NPP cards, I want to see when they signed onto this NPP thing and which constituencies they belong to because I think a lot of the key people around him don’t have this party at heart.”

“They are damaging the country and damaging the political party and it’s going to damage the brand of our NPP”, he said.

Kwabena Agyapong recently announced his intentions to run as a presidential candidate of the NPP.

According to him, his desire to lead the party and run for the presidency is borne out of a commitment to humanity, given the political ideals of the NPP.

Speaking in an interview, he said, “today, I want to make it clear. As soon as the party allows for nominations to be filed for the flagbearer of the party, I will file.”

Kwabena Agyapong, who has contested the NPP flagbearership in the past, believes party members cannot lose sight of his long and dedicated service to the NPP because that makes him fit for the task ahead.

“The party has rules and regulations, and we don’t need to jump the gun and when the time comes, you will know the warmth of the youth because my message resonates with them. They see, in me, the hope of our political tradition because I have worked under all the leadership of this party,” he told Citi Tv.

The former General Secretary says he is prepared to bring his rich experience to bear to break the eight for the party.
