I completely funded the NPP’s 2014 congress in Tamale, boasts Kennedy Agyapong


Kennedy Agyapong, a candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPPflagbearer )’s position, asserts that he was the sole source of funding for a party congress in 2014.

Sir John requested in a letter from 2014 that each area host its own congress because the party couldn’t afford a joint gathering at the time, according to Kennedy Agyapong, the late former general secretary of the party.


Kennedy claimed that out of personal love to the NPP, he personally chose to fund the entire congress on the party’s behalf.

The only reason I’m upset about the NPP in 2014 is this particular issue; we worked hard enough to create the harvest, and now everyone is enjoying it (proverbial statement).

Sir John, may your spirit rest in peace. In 2014, the General Secretary informed all the regions in a letter that the NPP was bankrupt and could not have their congress in Tamale.

“I question, then, how it it that a party that has had office for eight years and has only been in opposition for eight years is so financially strapped that they are unable to support their congress?

“The congress is also the main gathering of all party members and it encourages them to have faith in the party… Yet, if you suggest that we hold the election on a regional basis, you will destroy the party; therefore, I will pay the costs.

“I paid the money for us to go to the Tamale congress on my own,” he claimed.

Speaking to party members in the Greater Accra area’s Ayawaso East Constituency, the Assin Central Member of Parliament revealed that he also bought 240 pickups for the party in 2016.

Kennedy Agyapong, a well-known financier, mentioned a number of additional instances where he came through for the NPP in terms of financial support and other resources, in addition to the purchase of cars.

Beyond his services to the party, Agyapong reminded the delegates that he was still the only candidate who could be the party’s flagbearer in the elections of 2024.

On November 4, 2023, the NPP plans to hold a primary to choose a flagbearer who will represent the party in the 2024 presidential election.
