Outspoken lawmaker Kennedy Agyapong has claimed Chief of Staff Frema Osei Opare gave him GHC120,000 to deposit in the bank account of Dome-Kwabenya MP Adwoa Safo following her demands on the party.
“I have vowed not to insult like I will blast her today. Adwoa Safo, Chief of Staff called me, I went there and [she] said now this is what she is saying, I swear [on] my mother’s grave, Chief of Staff gave me GHC120,000 to deposit in Adwoa Safo’s bank account.
“I put the money there, I deposited it in her fidelity bank account, you can ask her PA. I deposited the money there. Now, because of how she is behaving we are in opposition,” he Asaase Radio on Tuesday.
Last week, Mr Agyapong accused the Gender Minister of holding the ruling party to ransom.
“Adwoa Safo is holding the whole NPP to ransom. It is the truth I’m saying. I won’t cover it up because I have two children with her so when she is doing something which is wrong, [I won’t say it]. What is going on in NPP is very annoying. We have pampered some people to the extent that they have become tin gods,” he said on his radio network Oman FM last Thursday.
The complaints come on the back of a similar one by another party member in the House Michael Kofi Okyere Baafi who also accused the Dome Kwabenya MP of sabotaging government business.
According to the deputy Trade Minister, his colleague is making demands on the party and President before showing up in the House for business.
“All the problems government is facing are attributable to Adwoa Safo. Clearly, her intention and posture show that she wants to sabotage NPP. All 136 NPP MPs are always in Parliament except for Adwoa Sarfo. One person cannot hold the party to ransom,” he said on Peace FM.
