Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has disclosed his unwillingness to forgive some colleagues he helped in their primaries to Parliament who turned against him during the presidential primary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The Assin Central MP who says he is bitter for the treatment meted out to him says he has no problem with the fact that they refused to vote for him, but the personal attacks they unleashed on him in the lead up to the party’s flag bearer elections.

In a yet to be aired interview with KSM on Pan Africa Television, the vociferous lawmaker expressed particular hurt over the “insults” he endured from those he supported in their parliamentary primaries.

“It is not every MP who didn’t vote for me that I am angry at, no, everybody has a choice. But the very people who were my friends that I have helped to bring them to Parliament,” he noted.

Rather than the Vice President’s victory, the MP indicated that the betrayal and personal attacks from his colleagues is what made him bitter.

“It’s not the betrayal, but the bad things they said about me, that is where I have the problem. So who says I’m not bitter? I am bitter, I am not because the vice president won, I am bitter because of the people that I have helped. If you are not going to vote for me, no problem but the insults. I can’t forgive them.”

In the NPP Presidential Primaries, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong secured 71,996 votes, representing 37.41%, while Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia emerged as the winner with 118,210 votes, accounting for 61.47%, thereby becoming the party’s flagbearer.
