I have not resigned - Kwabena Agyapong (May 26, 2015) Pg 16


 Kwabena Agyapong

Diverse views were expressed when news broke over the airwaves Tuesday afternoon that Mr Kwabena Agyepong had resigned his position as the General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

But within minutes of the news, Mr Agyepong himself denied it.

While most radio stations were reading the purported resignation statement, word went round that the statement was false, forcing some of the stations to stop reading it and apologise for the wrong information. 
Although the statement announcing Mr Agyepong’s resignation was on a party letter head, it did not have his signature.

Excerpts of the statement read: “I sent my formal resignation letter to the National Council of the party. I, however, remain committed to serving the party in my individual capacity as a member and it is my hope and prayer that we win the 2016 elections to alleviate the economic hardship inflicted on Ghanaians by the incompetent and corrupt John Mahama administration.” 

‘I will stick to my position’ 

Speaking on an Accra-based radio station, Joy FM, Mr Agyepong denied that he had resigned.

“I have not resigned. I will not resign. I will stick to my position which I earned through my sweat and through the trust that the people of this party have in me. I have toiled and worked hard for this party and I am not ready to leave this position,” he stated.

He said he did not issue statements from the party directly but rather through the communications directorate of the party.
“I issue statements through the communications directorate of the party and not my personal email. Clearly, these are unseen hands and people who want to destroy our party.

“That is all they have done in the last two weeks, including attempts to hang murder on my neck. They will do anything.
“I am a very strong and firm person and I am resolute. By the grace of Our Lord I believe in what I am doing. I believe I am right. Therefore, I am going to stick to my position and those who think I am wrong better think about it,” he added. 

He had a word for those who wanted him impeached: “Those who want to impeach me can go ahead and I am going to make sure they lose the impeachment effort. They will lose the impeachment effort.” 

‘Good will prevail over evil’ 

“Good will eventually triumph over evil. The evil forces at play have tried to do this. There are people who want to destroy me; they can’t do it. I am a Christian and I believe in divinity and what I am doing,” he said.  

Mr Agyepong, who was elected in April last year, just days after he had been involved in a road accident, said he would serve his mandate until 2018. 

The general secretary said those “who have done this should be ashamed of themselves. They tried to hack into my email and use my signature?  These are the people we are trying to confront”.

The executives of at least seven regional branches of the party have asked Mr Afoko and Mr Agyepong to step aside to pave way for a rebuilding process, but Mr Agyepong said such demands were unconstitutional.

“There is nothing like appealing to me to step aside. Let’s be serious in this country. The party has a constitution. What they did was unconstitutional,” he said.
