Hon. Kennedy Agyapong of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) said that members of his own party, not the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), were behind the false claims that he was a well-known drug dealer years ago.
According to Kennedy Agyapong, the accusations that he’s into narcotics came after he had a heated altercation with one of the ‘big men’ in the party.
He didn’t like that this person accused him of selling drugs and spread false stories about it. He also didn’t like that this person took all the credit for the party’s win in 2000.
Kennedy Agyapong brazenly revealed the person’s name on NET TV, saying, “the late former Central Regional Minister Isaac Edumadzi was the first person to accuse me of being a drug dealer”.
He reportedly said;
“I had a problem with Isaac Edumadze because I told him I wasn’t going to let him take credit for the work I did or the way he sabotaged some candidates.” He was the first person to accuse me of being a drug dealer. He was the first person. It wasn’t from the NDCs; it was internal because I resisted him.”
Mr. Isaac Edumadze was the Member of Parliament (MP) of the Ejumako-Enyan-Essiam Constituency from 2005 to 2009, during the tenure of John Agyekum Kufour.
Ghanaians are having difficulty accepting Kennedy Agyapong’s innocence in the cocaine trafficking case.
Some celebrities, notably Afia Schwar, have attributed his fortune to his unconfirmed drug business.
