The Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has expressed disappointment in the flag-bearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) for not condemning Kennedy Agyepong’s accusations during his press confab.

Kennedy Agyepong, MP for Assin North constituency and a member of the NPP is on record to have accused the party’s Chairman Paul Afoko, General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong and “his boss” for masterminding the killing of the party’s Upper East regional chairman, Adams Mahama.

They are behind it. Kwadwo Mpani, I hope you are satisfied...Kwabena Agyepong you are satisfied. Afoko you are satisfied. You will never have peace of mind. It won't work, I tell you. Kwabena Agyepong, who is he? Who is Afoko? I brought Kwabena Agyepong. I will show him we brought him...Kwadwo Mpiani and his boss, I have said it; nobody deserves to die in this party. We have helped them to come to power. They have made money which they are now using to kill people...Kwadwo Mpiani's bodyguard said he will kill me...I say we will fight...aaaahhhhh....Kwadwo Mpaini, you and your boss, you are satisfied. You have ruled...we are not afraid of anybody", Kennedy Agyepong alleged on Oman FM’s Boiling Point programme.

Following the incessant tension in NPP, presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo on Friday addressed party supporters at the headquarters of the party in Asylum Down, Accra in a move to restore calm in the party. He called on members to ‘cease fire’ and allow Mr. Afoko and Mr. Agyepong access to their offices. Reports suggested that the Invincible Forces security at the headquarters had taken over the premises and prevented the two beleaguered executives from entering their respective offices following accusations that they masterminded the killing of Mr Mahama. He also urged members to stop the finger pointing.

“Having heard so many people, my first call on party members and supporters is to cease fire. The finger pointing, name calling, insults, lies, denigrating of past and current leaders must stop."

But Honourable Ablakwa has indicated that Nana Addo should have singled Kennedy Agyepong out and condemned his unfair accusations.

I think it was not properly thought through...how on earth could Nana Akufo Addo fail to condemn Kennedy Agyepong’s attack on President Kufuor and Kwadwo Mpiani? How on earth could he fail to do that? This is a man you want to succeed; you want to run on the legacy of President Kufuor…this was not the time for general statements…it was a time for you to name and shame…I was most disappointed; I don’t know if he drafted this statement himself…I was most disappointed….I was most shocked…nobody needs to be accused of murder without any evidence…”, he said on Radio Gold’s Alhaji and Alhaji.
