Controversial Ghanaian politician, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has firmly declared that he will not step down amidst rumors and calls for his withdrawal from the from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer race.

Addressing party members, Agyapong made it clear that he would not yield to pressure, emphasizing that winning the election is what matters.

He stated, “I am not going to step down for anybody, when you win, then you win, so all of us, if we have to come together, then we come together.

But coming together will depend on how we will conduct this November 4 election because how they treated all of us on the 26th, I think it is not proper.”

Reports had circulated suggesting that Agyapong had been urged by high-ranking government officials and chiefs to pave the way for Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

However, Agyapong dismissed these claims, stating that he is prepared to go all the way and will accept the outcome of the election, irrespective of the winner.

Unity within the party, he stressed, will hinge on the fairness and transparency of the upcoming primaries scheduled for November 4, 2023.

Agyapong believes that the conduct of the primaries will determine the extent to which the party can come together after the flagbearer election.
