Assin Central Member of Parliament Hon Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has indicated that though the NPP being led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo has won the 2020 general election, he is very bitter.
Hon Kennedy was speaking on his NET 2 Television a few minutes after the Electoral Commission declared Nana Akufo Addo and the NPP as the winner of the 2020 election.
He pinpointed that most NPP Members of Parliament lost their seats due to internal Party wrangling and that affected the votes of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.
He says the Party could have performed better if every party member was satisfied.
He told the host of the Seat Show, Mr. Kwaku Annan, that former President John Dramani Mahama does not deserve the over six million votes he had, and that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo could have gained more votes than he did in the 2016 election.
“Akufo Addo has won the election but I’m not happy. The truth is that I’m very bitter because we caused our near defeat in the Parliamentary.
Look at what happened in the primaries, people were disqualified here and there. I can tell you most of our NPP members did not vote because most of them were bitter.
But that should have never been the case. At a point, we were very worried about our chances of getting the majority in parliament.
The party should work on those challenges as quickly as possible because I’m not happy with the figures we had at all”. Mr. Kennedy Agyapong noted.
He cautioned the leadership of the New Patriotic Party to ensure that members of the Party who worked hard for the second term victory are duly compensated.
He said the era where NDC contractors are given contracts whilst NPP members are ignored should stop.
“You know I will always tell the truth. The time where contracts were given to NDC members whilst NPP members are capable of executing the same contracts should stop now.
Those who worked hard for the party to win the second term can equally be given contracts. Why should people in the NPP suffer when their party is in government and NDC members will be enjoying.
That should stop from today”. Mr. Kennedy Agyapong cautioned.
