Commenting on the NPP firebrand who earlier threatened to quit politics due to how he is being treated after campaigning for the NPP win power in the 2016 elections said he can resign.

"I don’t believe Kennedy Agyapong can go ahead with his threat to quit NPP. He can resign if he thinks the kitchen is too hot," Otukonor said on Kumasi-based Nhyira FM.

Kennedy Agyapong, addressing party supporters at Nyankumasi in the constituency over the weekend said he took the decision to quit because the NPP has not been fair to him, having been used to do the hatchet work on radio and TV and only to be disgraced in public.

"They feel they are wise but that is all of it. They will take me to Central Region and say the 23 constituencies Kennedy Agyapong the foolish one should use his money to support, I will not do it again. If I do not tell them then I am lying.

"I have decided not to contest again because of NPP and their conduct. The way they are using me and making me face all sorts of embarrassment I do not think I can continue. You can record and go and play to them. Where I have lived my life up to and they are treating me, I am calling it quits," he stated.

Moments after Kennedy Agyapong addressed the supporters who almost broke down in tears, some of them begged him to reverse his decision but he obliged.

Central Regional Secretary of the NPP, Terchie Mensah said the NPP in the Central region would have suffered greatly if the maverick MP quits.
