...after the funeral of former vice president Amissah-Arthur
The woes of maverick politician, Kennedy Agyapong, seem not to be coming to an end as the Northern Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) give given indications that he and his boys will ‘show him their teeth’ after former vice president, Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur is properly laid to rest .
In a statement challenging the Assin Central legislator to come clean on some of his pronouncements, Chairman Sofo Azorka maintained that, at no point in time before, during and after the 2016 elections did his boys meet Kennedy Agyapong. He debunked allegations that Kennedy Agyapong stopped the Azorka boys of NDC from rigging the 2016 elections.
He said the attempts by Kennedy Agyapong to divert attention as the NDC plan a demonstration over the removal of the Electoral Commissioner Charlotte Osei and her two deputies will not wash.
“I challenge Kennedy Agyapong to come clean with his diversionary allegations. Just because the NDC is planning to hit the road on the removal of the Electoral Commissioner and her two deputies. We are unshaken with this blatant lies and will soon show our teeth after the funeral of the late Vice President, Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur,”the chairman fumes.
He further pointed out that the allegation made by the Assin Central MP that Azorka boys have been rigging elections for the NDC is untenable, adding that the group is not part of the NDC Election Directorate and does not meddle in their activities.
According to him, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is going through difficulties and can only take to diversionary tactics to resuscitate. The removal of the EC boss and her two deputies is giving the NPP a lot of nightmare in his view and the only body the NPP and Kennedy Agyapong fear is the Azorka boys, hence the monstrous lies being heaped on him and his boys.
His statement was in response to an allegation by Kennedy Agyapong that he contracted the leader of Azorka boys and promised him a Land Cruiser and gifts just to influence him to control his boys on the day of the elections. He said it took his efforts to tame the Azorka boys from intimidating and terrorising voters which would have paved way for the NDC to smuggle their illegally created thumb printed ballots from their disillusioned polling stations to the collation centres for counting.
