The New Patriotic Party (NPP), Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has urged the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to be cautions with some personalities operating around him.
According to the outspoken politician, some elements within the NPP as well as the NDC are hiding behind the recent rift between the NPP and the Ashanti Kingdom.
Speaking on Accra-based Adom FM on Tuesday, the NPP man accused that some loyalist around Otumfuor could be working closely with elements within the NPP or the NDC to undermine his authority in an effort to make the President Akufo-Addo unpopular.
“In the Asantehene’s palace, I must make it clear to him that he won’t get everyone to fully support him. All of them have their political interest. He should be careful,” he said. Mr Agyapong also added that, “Asantehene should be careful of those around. Not all those he works with are 100 percent NPP or NDC. With all due respect, Nana, please be careful of those who come and talk to you because they know the relationship between you and Akufo Addo and may work with some bad nuts in NPP to destroy the Asantehene and the president. It’s very sad,”
It could be recalled that, some NPP executives on Wednesday went on their knees to apologise to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.
