The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party Kwabena Agyepong has in a revealing interview on Kasapa 102.3FM stated that he was not informed of the flagbearer’s Rise and Build tour.
According to him, he only got knowledge of the tour on the internet adding that he has been kept in the dark on several issues relating to some of the official activities of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
“They have tried to blame me for several things I have no idea about. I have tried all I can to advance the cause of Nana Addo but my efforts are not being appreciated. This is very disheartening and sad,” Agyepong said in an interview with Fiifi Banson Monday.
He added: “I have always tried to accompany Nana Addo everywhere he goes. You’ll recall that when the unfortunate incident happened at the Goil Filing station at Circle, I was there with Nana, but what you don’t know is that after we had planned to go there, the car which was to convey us to the incident scene took off before I got to our supposed meeting at the time we had agreed. I had to drive and rush to meet Nana Addo at Circle. The same thing happened when we where going to James Town, I had to find my way there.
“Again when we were going to Akropong to express our condolence over the death of Okuapiman Hene, Nana Addo Dankwa, though I had repeatedly informed the entourage that I was waiting for them at Aburi to make the journey together, to my utmost surprise Nana Addo’s convoy swiftly drove past me. Once again I had to meet them at Akropong alone.
“What more can I do, I have a clear heart and I don’t hold anything against Nana Addo, the deliberate orchestrated attempt in the media to discredit me will fail.”
Agyepong said he had decided to remain quiet over the internal party issues because he wanted them to be solved internally but since there is a deliberate attempt to discredit him in the media he is ready to go all out and fight those destroying him.
Nana Akufo-Addo, commenced his month- long national tour last Thursday which saw him visiting the Volta Region, ahead of the commencement of the campaign for the 2016 general elections.
