NPP’s internal wrangling has the General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong and party Chairman Paul Afoko on one hand, and the first Vice Chairman Freddie Blay and his camp on the other
Managing Editor of the Dispatch newspaper, Ben Ephson has stated that the political future of the General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwabena Agyepong is “dead”, considering the wrangling within the party.
NPP’s internal wrangling has the General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong and party Chairman Paul Afoko on one hand, and the first Vice Chairman Freddie Blay and his camp on the other. This seemed to have deepened when the first national vice chairman of the NPP, Freddie Blay organised a steering committee meeting while both the party chairman, Paul Afoko and General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong were away.
The two have raised qualms with the organisation of the meeting behind their back while Mr. Blay insists that the general secretary was aware of the said meeting, which was graced by the presidential candidate Nana Akuffo-Addo.
But, Mr. Ephson, speaking on Kasapa 102.3FM stated that the actions of Mr. Agyepong has ruined the latter’s political future.
“He talks about people destroying his political future, I think he wants to run [as presidential candidate] in 2020 but unfortunately from what he is doing I think he has shot himself in the foot,” Ephson said adding, “His political future is gone”.
