The campaign team of Kennedy Agyapong says it will work to ensure that all Members of Parliament (MPs) who supported Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in the presidential primaries lose their seats if their candidate emerges victorious.
The campaign team added that this is the only way to guarantee that they will have people they can work with to implement their change agenda.
In an interview with Citi News, the Chairman of the Kennedy Agyapong Campaign team, Kwame Owusu, wondered why good friends of Mr. Agyapong, such as Alexander Afenyo-Markin and KT Hammond, have failed to publicly endorse his candidacy.
“Honourable K.T. Hammond is the best friend of Kennedy Agyapong, Minister of Trade; he has not been able to endorse him. Afenyo-Markin is the best friend of Kennedy Agyapong; he has not been able to endorse him,” Owusu said.
“It is because they are psychologically intimidated, and we knew because of that, to protect their jobs, they were going to go to the other side. When we get the chance to win, most of these MPs will be cleaned up. We will campaign against them,” he stated.
Meanwhile, Mr. Owusu has also admitted that his campaign team has resorted to offering financial incentives to some delegates ahead of the upcoming November 4 presidential primaries.
He explained that their decision to induce delegates was in response to the exorbitant sums of money being disbursed to delegates by Dr Bawumia’s camp.
“He has given some inducements that are far too high, and people look at them, and they are very dissatisfied with things that we have not been able to pay, such as NABCO. Recently, we were even owing so much money as regards to school feeding and the rest…so when people see the amount of money that is moving that they claim they don’t have, people become suspicious,” Mr. Owusu told Citi News’ Hanson Agyemang.
