“The Central Regional NPP Executives led by Chairman Kutin is solidly behind Hon. Ken Agyapong, he’s one individual who during the 2016 electioneering campaign channeled his resources, time and energy that ensured the NPP won 19 out of the 23 seats in the Central Region.
“Also, the NPP won 63% of the Presidential vote, Ken Agyapong’s contribution to the NPP across the country and in the Central Region is invaluable and “cannot be quantified. We’ll continue to support in all ways and encourage him to soldier on.
“Politics is made up of individuals with various interests and backgrounds so whatever be the case somebody will step on another’s toes.
“But we are happy that after the teeming residents appealed to him to rescind his decision he agreed. We thank him very much and will continue to give him the fullest support going into the 2020 elections,” Mr. Terchie Mensah added.
