“If you make a mistake and vote for Asenso, you will see the revelations I will bring out. Yes, I am telling you; it’s a condition. If you don’t want me to talk, vote against him.

“If you want me to talk, vote for him and I challenge you because we won’t allow you to destroy Ghana. We have no other place to go. Anyone challenging me here today that Kennedy Agyapong has spoken badly so they are going to vote for Asenso to win, you will see,” he added.

Reiterates corruption allegations against Asenso-Boakye

“You should be ashamed of yourself to go and vote for a corrupt MP like Asenso again. I am telling you; I don’t mince words. I don’t care how you feel. I am telling you the gospel truth because Ghana first,” he stated.

“When you were a deputy Chief of Staff you were taking bribes of $20,000. Do you think the man (investor) was lying? Go and ask. Ask Kwabena Asante of Adom FM whether the Chinese people he demanded $20,000 from paid? I stopped it.

“If you would remember I cautioned that NPP people were disgracing Akufo-Addo, those at the Jubilee House demanding monies before allowing people to see the president. I was referring to Asenso. Today, I am telling you; I was referring to Asenso,” Ken Agyapong who is the current Member of Parliament for Assin Central alleged.

Asenso-Boakye and Ralph Agyapong are set for a showdown on January 27, 2023, when the delegates of the party in constituencies with incumbent MPs will go to the polls to elect parliamentary candidates for the 2024 general election.
