The suspended General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwabena Agyei Agyepong has denied receiving a car as gift from President John Mahama.
The allegation of a vehicle being dashed to the suspended Chief Scribe of the largest opposition party was one of the issues raised against him at the Disciplinary Committee (DC) of the party, ahead of his suspension.
He was however unable to convince the DC that he bought the car himself and had official documents to back his claim.

1.6 Suspected Compromise
The General Secretary Kwabena Agyapong must come clean to purge himself from the allegation that he has been given a vehicle from the NDC/Mahama.
The ex-General Secretary of the NDC, Dr, Josiah Aryeh, was accused of having received
a “gift” of only US $1,000.00 from Mr. Stephen Ntim, ex-First Deputy Chairman of the NPP and was asked to resign by the committee set up NDC to look into the matter.
Similarly, the then Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Kofi Adams was suspended upon mere suspicion of his relationship with some elements within the NPP – a sign of a serious political party.
It has been alleged that our General Secretary Mr. Kwabena Agyapong has been dashed/ given a vehicle worth between USD $80,000.00 to 10,000.00 by NDC/ President Mahama, which he has denied on Kwesi Pratt’s show Hot issues on TV3.
However, documents sighted by us show the following,
Vehicle Reg. No. GM 615-14
Chassis No. JTMHVO912E4128711
Owner: STELIN AUTOMATIVE AND TRADING CO.
Directors SETH STEPHEN FIATI (50%) AND CECILIA LINDA (50%)
Secretaries of Stelin REGINALD KPAKPO AND DEMPSON THOMPSON
Address P.O Box 19941, Accra North
Our covert information reveals that Seth Stephen Fiati gave the vehicle to Mr. Kwabena Agyapong and it is alleged that he, Fiati was introduced to Kwabena Agyapong by one Mr. Tommy Amametekpor. It is again alleged that the said Stelin Automative Company belongs to Mr. John Dramani Mahama. We therefore request NEC to set committee to investigate the issues raised and act on it.
