A flagbearer hopeful of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Kennedy Agyapong, has alleged that the Campaign Team of the Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has made several moves to grease his palms to accept an offer to become his running mate but he has rejected the offer.
According to him, Dr Bawumia is forcefully engaging in a foul political play that has the tendency of destroying the NPP as a party.
Mr Agyapong made these wild allegations at the Jubilee Park in Kumasi in the Ashanti region after a march organized by his ardent supporters dubbed “A SHOWDOWN WALK”
Mr Agyapong alleged further that, the Vice President Dr Bawumia and his team were intimidating party members who were not his supporters, a move that is against the principles of the party.
The “Showdown Walk” Saw indegens in the Ashanti region thronged the principal streets of Kumasi as a demonstration of their show of support for the NPP Presidential hopeful, Mr Kennedy Agyapong.
