Frank Annoh-Dompreh, the Majority Chief Whip and Member of Parliament for Nsawam/Adoagyiri in the Eastern Region, has vehemently denied allegations that he is behind the destruction of billboards and campaign artworks associated with Kennedy Agyapong, a flagbearer aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Addressing the accusations, Annoh-Dompreh categorically stated that he does not support Kennedy Agyapong's presidential ambitions; however, he would never resort to such tactics to undermine his fellow party member's campaign. Supporters of Kennedy Agyapong had claimed that Annoh-Dompreh was responsible for ordering the vandalization of campaign materials within his constituency in anticipation of the NPP's special delegates congress.
In an official statement, the Majority Chief Whip expressed his commitment to political decency and fair competition within the party. He asserted, "I don’t know anything about this so-called matter and I feel a lot of pain because this is somebody that I respect, he is not an enemy and I don’t even do this to my opponents in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who have their artworks all over Nsawam and how much more will I go about pulling down the artwork of my colleague Member of Parliament."
Annoh-Dompreh further clarified, "This is not the first time they are throwing this allegation at me and I want to tell my colleague that I don’t have anything personal against him."
The MP also shared his prediction for the upcoming Special Delegates Conference of the NPP, expressing his support for Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia. He stated, "If you zero in on what happened in Sunyani in 1998 and all the things that the other contestants have said, there are not going to be any surprises, it will be an emphatic endorsement for the most popular candidate and you know it is the Vice President and he is going to win hands down."
As the political climate intensifies in the run-up to the special delegates congress, the spotlight remains on the NPP and its internal dynamics, with both Annoh-Dompreh and Kennedy Agyapong continuing to vie for support within the party ranks.
