Ghanaian popular member of parliament, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong on Tuesday recounted on “Good evening Ghana’s show” on Metro TV with Paul Okyere, how the ex-president drove him out of his Airport West private residence for choosing to support Nana Akufo-Addo, instead of Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanteng as the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) presidential candidate for the 2012 presidential elections.
Report from ex-President Kufuor’s inner circles have revealed that the Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP) and Kuffour feud was not political, but was family issues.
Clarifying the statement made by the member of parliament, Some officials in the office of the ex-President have given a vivid account of what happened.
According to the account given by Paul Darko Okyere on good evening Ghana, the real problem was that, one of Kuffour’s son was engaged in business with a man called Mr Kwame Poku. Their business did not go on well, and president Kuffour’s son took legal actions against the man. The court agreed with Kuffour’s son and it turned out he have to go and take Mr Kwame Poku’s properties in Tema and sell to pay the debt.
Kennedy Agyapong was then hinted by some Adom FM journalists of the president’s son intention. So he was worried the media will take the president’s son issue and drag the president name in the mud, so Kennedy Agyapong called to tell the president to advise his son to stop and settle the issue amicably.
Kuffour found out after Kennedy Agyapong’s hint, his son was still in the house, so he misinterpreted it that Kennedy Agyapong was on the side of the business man against his son despite all the treatment he gave Kennedy Agyapong as his own family.
So this resulted in his disappointment in Kennedy Agyapong and not politics as speculated.
The officials confirms Kuffour’s full support to President Akufo Addo, the New Patriotic Party and gives all his full support to the party for the betterment of the party and Ghanaians as a whole.
