New details have emerged regarding the meeting between Assin Central Member of Parliament, Ken Agyapong, and Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia. Initially celebrated by New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters after the presidential primaries on November 4, the meeting’s real nature is now coming to light.
Adakabri Frimpong Manso, a presenter with Despite Media, disclosed insider information, disputing the initial reports of a cordial gathering. According to Manso, the meeting was not a result of mutual agreement; instead, Ken Agyapong was allegedly ambushed after evading multiple invitations from the Bawumia camp.
“They did all they could to get him, but he was also evading them, so they surveilled him till they realized he was at home, and then they ambushed him,” Manso revealed on Neat FM. He questioned the lack of prior notice, stating, “Isn’t there the need to inform people of your visit?”
Manso went on to describe the situation, emphasizing that Ken Agyapong was unaware of the meeting. Allegedly, the Bawumia camp had been attempting to arrange a meeting through handlers, but Ken Agyapong was elusive. Upon discovering his presence at home, they made their move, resulting in a lengthy and extensive conversation.
The central theme of the discussions reportedly revolved around individuals who had criticized Agyapong during the flagbearer campaign. Despite Agyapong securing a respectable second place in the November 4 polls, with Bawumia winning by over 61%, the details of the meeting shed light on the behind-the-scenes dynamics within the NPP as they prepare for the 2024 general elections.
