If what The aL-hAJJ is picking from sources close to the General Secretary of the opposition New Patriotic Party, Ing Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, is anything to go by, then members of the party relishing an NPP government after the 2016 elections should start revising their notes.
Having served notice to spill the beans if his internal detractors continue with their evil agenda to sabotage him, the embattled NPP General Secretary, The aL-hAJJ sources have revealed, is said to have been provoked following harsh comments and calls for his dismissal after the warning.
While Kwabena Agyapong is said to have initially wanted to use the caution to tame his virulent critics in the NPP, their adamant disposition, this paper has gathered, has pushed the former football commentator to consider going for the kill.
The impending bombshell, according to a source close to him, will “put those shouting on top of their roofs and claiming to adore Nana Akufo-Addo most, to their proper shape, and I can assure you that it is not the intension of Kwabena to jeopardize our chances in 2016, but if those praise singers of Nana Akufo-Addo dare make a wrong move, the consequences for the party will be grave and could lead to its disintegration.”
The NPP spent last week in the media for the wrong reasons after the National Chairman Paul Afoko and General Secretary Kwabena Agyapong, who are both thought to be anti-Akufo-Addo, were missing in a Steering Committee meeting on Monday.
What broke the camel’s back was when Kwabena Agyepong said he had no knowledge of the Steering Committee meeting, saying “Tell them, I am eating fufu in Kumasi. I don’t know anything about this meeting.”
He has since been berated by lap-dogs of the flag bearer, with Nana Akufo-Addo’ nephew and strategists saying the NPP’s 2016 campaign can be executed without the input of recalcitrant National Executives.
Head of Political Science Department of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science of Technology, Dr Amoako Baah, who is a known aficionado of Nana Akufo-Addo, has even gone further to call on the NPP to sack Kwabena Agyepong.
These scathing attacks, The aL-hAJJ gathered, has compelled the beleaguered General Secretary to issue a stern warning that he would deal with critics who intend to undermine his (Kwabena Agyepong) authority and that of the National Chairman, Mr. Paul Afoko.
“I have kept quiet for a long time and I am getting tired. If this is how they want things to go, then I will soon begin to expose how things really are in the party; they have pushed me to the wall. I know there are plans by some people just to destroy me and my future in politics, and I am prepared to confront them squarely, henceforth,” he warned.
What is also said to have irked Kwabena Agyepong to have decided to rock the boat is Nana Akufo-Addo’s deafening silence in the midst of ruthless attacks on his person by some of his (Nana Akufo-Addo’s) linchpins.
Meanwhile, a founding member of the NPP, Dr. Nyaho-Nyaho Tamakloe, without mincing words has also said the meeting convened by Freddie Blay was a preparatory ground by some National Executive members to hijack the party.
Describing the development as disturbing, Nyaho Tamakloe said, "It is the latest in overt and covert attempts to hijack the national executive outfit and undermine some elements in the leadership, especially the Chairman, Mr. Afoko, and the General Secretary, Mr. Agyepong; and we must all speak out against it”.
According to him, ever since Afoko and Agyepong assumed office, some people in the party have given them no peace and said that what is being witnessed in the NPP today has never happened in the history of the party, adding that, the likes of Da Rocha, Agyenim Boateng, Ala Adjetey, Dan Botwe, Mac Manu, Ohene Ntow, Obetsebi-Lamptey, Owusu-Afriyie, were never treated the way Afoko and Kwabena Agyepong are being undermined.
"We have a 1st Vice Chairman, who recently joined from a rival party - but now calls the shots and disregards party traditions, and no one calls him to order. This is untenable," Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe, is on record to have said.
