NPP Regional Chairman Charges, Says Cars, Phones and Bodyguards Have Been Provided to them by National Security
The General Secretary and the National Chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwabena Agyei Agyapong, and Paul Afoko, are in the pocket of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), according to the NPP’s Northern Regional Chairman, Daniel Bugri Naabu.
Chairman Bugri, according to a secret tape making the rounds purported to be coming from a meeting he held with executives of the party in the region reveals that the two men, have been induced financially by the NDC to work against their own party and flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, going into the 2016 elections.
Mr. Agyapong and Mr. Afoko, who have been made “strangers”, courtesy the party’s flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, Mr Bugri said are being funded by the NDC through the National Security, and the younger brother of President John Mahama, and businessman; Ibrahim Mahama.
The two, he said collected a total of GH¢800,000, while the ex-NPP General Secretary, Nana Ohene Ntow, and ex-Greater Accra Regional Chairman, Sammy Crabbe, also pocketed various sums from the NDC government to work against Nana Addo.
He adds that “the NDC government has given them vehicles; yes they have given Paul, V8, Kwabena V8”.
On portions of the one-hour long tape in the possession of the Accra-based Radio Gold, Chairman Bugri Naabu, insisted that even “the drivers and bodyguards of (Paul and Agyapong) are from the National Security…”
He mentioned Sammy Crabbe and Nana Ohene Ntow, as also receiving financial packages from the government.
He went on “Ah ah, they are NDC”, referring to the former Spokesperson for ex-president John Kufuor, Mr Agyapong and Mr. Afoko, a perceived Alan Kyeremanten
In what sounded like an attack on Mr. Agyapong‘s praised solidarity message during the NDC’s National Delegates Congress in Kumasi last month, Chairman Bugri, tagged it as fake. “They are all NDC. All that he was reading at the [NDC’s National Delegates Congress in Kumasi] was camouflage”.
Bugri Naabu, who registered a very strong protest last year, over his region’s inability to vote hundred percent for Nana Addo, as flagbearer, emphatically said that “oh yes, Kwabena Agyapong, was given almost GH¢400, 000, Paul Afoko, was given the same, eh Nana Ohene Ntow, was given GH¢100,000” it is serious o, so you don’t know?”, he questioned amidst loud cough.
As reported in The Herald on Wednesday, the loud mouth politician, branded Mr. Afoko as a “useless” entity, whiles Mr. Agyapong, was said to be a traitor, whose own plan is to pursue the much talked about “Agenda 2020”, with Mr. Agyapong elected to lead the NPP as it flagbearer.
Chairman Bugri Naabu, disclosed what appears to be a perfect palace coup d’état in the NPP, as he admitted on the tape that, the Vice Chairman of the party, Freddie Blay, has become the unofficial Chairman of the party, since he is the one the presidential candidate is comfortable with.
Meetings are held at secret places without the knowledge of the “two musketeers”, Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyapong because, the two cannot be trusted with party information.
Party resources, according to the controversial politician, are now channeled through the one time Deputy Speaker of Parliament, who went to the August House through the Convention People’s Party (CPP), for onward distribution to the other national and regional executives.
