The Northern Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mohammed Adam Bantima Samba, has described Assin Central MP Honorable Kennedy Agyapong as a ‘big liar’ for saying he was denied from meeting party executives in the Northern Region when he visited the region over the weekend.
According to Chairman Samba, he never prevented the Assin Central MP from meeting party executives in the Northern Region as he claimed.
“I want to state it clear that, Kennedy Agyapong is a big liar. I can’t deny Kennedy Agyapong from meeting my party people. Kennedy Agyapong failed to understand the party structures. He is a Member of Parliament. But he failed to officially inform me about his visit in my region. I only heard his coming to the region from my constituency executives. But nobody from his camp informed me about his visit”, he said.
The Northern Regional Chairman of NPP Mohammed Adam Bantima, denied the allegations on Diamond 93.7 FM on Wednesday November 30, 2022.
It would be recalled that Honorable Kennedy Agyapong, who doubles as the Chairman of the Interior and Defense Committee of Parliament, in an interaction with the Upper East Regional and Constituency executives of NPP alleged that, Chairman Samba and North East Regional Chairman of NPP, denied him from meeting their constituency executives when he visited their regions some few days ago.
“Chairman Samba and North East Regional Chairman of NPP, had asked constituency Chairmen of NPP not to meet me when we visited the regions”, he claimed.
The Assin Central MP also went further to allege that, “Samba and that (North East) chairman sells contracts given them. I am telling you, Samba and that North East Regional chairman, they gave them a contract of Gh¢163 million and this 163 million, they sold it to one Alidu Seidu”.
However, Chairman Samba in an interview with host of Diamond Power Drive Mohammed Ibn Abdallah maintained that, none of the regional executives including the regional secretary of the party was informed about his coming.
“I am not influenced by anyone, he should stop mentioning vice president’s name, why should he mention vice president name?”, he questioned.
Commenting on the contract allegations, Chairman stated, “I am disappointed in my senior man. This shows that he cannot be our leader. Kennedy Agyapong is a big liar. I don’t even know his house in Accra, and I have never won GHc163 million contract. I have never called or texted Kennedy Agyapong any message in my life time. I don’t even have his number”, he posited.
“He lied about me. He needs to come out and apologize to me, otherwise my lawyers will advise me on that. I may take him on”, he said.
“I don’t blame him because he has never campaigned across the country hence, he does not understand the party structures. So, he should stop lying”, he added.
