Kwabena Agyepong, the former General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has finally responded to claims that he was eating fufu in Kumasi when the party’s Steering Committee convened in Accra.
According to him, the story was staged by certain people who merely wanted to bring him down.
Mr. Agyapong became famous in 2015 for calling the NPP’s Steering Committee’s bluff.
“Tell them I’m in Kumasi eating fufu.” In 2015, he was quoted as saying, “I don’t know anything about this meeting.”
When questioned why he was not there at the meeting, Mr Agyepong joked that he was going to eat on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen program on Tuesday.
“Do you recall my 2015 fufu story?” I joked with the reporter that I was going to eat since I wasn’t at the meeting and couldn’t remark, only to learn the next day that I stated I was eating fufu. “The reporter had taped it and it was broadcast on all the radio stations,” he grumbled.
