We will bare our teeth at Ken Agyapong after funeral of Amissah-Arthur - Sofo Azorka

The woes of maverick politician, Kennedy Agyapong seem not to be coming to an end as the Northern Regional Chairman of the opposition NDC hints that, he and his boys were going to show him their teeth after the funeral of the late vice president, H.E. Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur.

In a statement challenging the Assin Central legislator to come clean, Chairman Sofo Azorka maintained that, at no point in time before, during and after the 2016 elections had his boys met Kennedy Agyapong. He debunked totally 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 NDC is planning to hit the road on the removal of the Electoral Commissioner and her two deputies will not wash.

"I challenge Kennedy Agyapong to come clean with his diversionary allegations just because 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, H.E Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur," the chairman fumes.

He further pointed out that the allegation made by the Assin Central MP that Azorka boys has 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 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 effort 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.
