Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, flagbearer aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has arrived at the party headquarters to face the elections committee.

The Member of Parliament for Assin Central is also expected to meet the party’s disciplinary committee over his conduct during the special delegates elections last weekend.

In a widely circulated video Mr Agyapong, the outspoken lawmaker is seen threatening President Nana Addo Dankwa AkufoAddo and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia over alleged attacks on his agents.

He was heard saying, “President Akufo-Addo, I will give you a showdown in this country, I swear to God. Vice President, I will give you a showdown for chasing my agent away. I swear to God. You will hear what will happen here. I swear to God, I will challenge President Akufo-Addo big time.”

A statement signed by the NPP General Secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong on Sunday, disclosed that Mr Agyapong will be summoned before the Disciplinary Committee to explain his threats.
