I’m bitter because MPs I supported betrayed me –Ken Agyapong

Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, the outspoken Member of Parliament for Assin Central, expressed his disappointment with the treatment he received during the 2023 New Patriotic Party (NPP) Presidential Primary. In an interview with KSM on Pan Africa Television, he revealed that he felt hurt by the insults he received from fellow MPs, especially those he considered close friends and had supported financially in their parliamentary campaigns.

The firebrand lawmaker, Agyapong clarified that while he respected the MPs’ right to choose their preferred candidate, it was the personal attacks and betrayal from individuals he had helped that fueled his bitterness, not Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s victory.

Despite securing 71,996 votes, representing 37.41%, Agyapong ultimately lost to Dr. Bawumia, who emerged as the party’s flagbearer with 118,210 votes, accounting for 61.47% of the total votes.

There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism.
