Admiring Wotunmi’s guts and prestige, Kennedy Agyapong on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme hailed him for his conduct
Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has plunged onto Chairman Wontumi’ side following the recent assault against the Manhiya North MP, Collins Owusu. The controversial Kennedy Agyapong who is also of the NPP has justified Wotunmi’s alleged assault on the MP.
Kennedy Agyapong believes that the Manhiya North MP is more or less a spy who has been getting involved with the ruling NDC. For this reason he said his colleague MP deserved the slap by the NPP Ashanti regional chairman, Bernard Antwi-Boasiako.
Chairman Wontumi allegedly slapped the Manhyia North MP and assaulted constituency secretary, Felix Ibrahim during the limited voter registration exercise at Krofrom, a suburb of Kumasi on Sunday. At the moment, the reason behind the alleged assault has not been completely known, as the case is still being investigated.
Chairman Wontumi whom was declared wanted by the police, gave himself in to the police as more controversies ensued. Admiring Wotunmi’s guts and prestige, Ken Agyapong on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme hailed him for his conduct. He said on the programme that “the slap he gave the MP is good”, adding that MP Collins deserved to be beaten.
Kennedy Agyapong also claimed that the Manhiya North MP called President Mahama to give orders for the police to deal with Chairman Wontumi. He also warned against any MP who might want to conspire with the NDC to bring the NPP down ahead of the November elections. He stressed that such unscrupulous individuals will not be spared by the party.
Chairman Wontumi has currently been granted bail after his counsel prayed court to grant the party time to settle the case internally. The case was adjourned to June 1, 2016.
