The New Patriotic Party(NPP) Member of Parliament for Obuasi East, Edward Enning has condemned the MP for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong for what he described as the ‘naked hypocrisy’ shown by the lawmaker, after he okayed the alleged assault of colleague MP Collins Owusu Amankwah by the Regional Chairman of the party Bernard Antwi Boasiako.

According to Mr. Agyapong, Owusu Amankwah is working against the flagbearer of the party Nana Akufo-Addo, refusing to contribute financially to the course of the NPP and therefore deserves more beatings.

But Enning, on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.3 FM slammed Agyapong for his “double standards”, insisting such attitude shakens the foundation of unity and oneness within the elephant family.

“I wonder why this time round the tables have turned. When Agyapong encountered similar problems with the BNI we all made sure we were there in our numbers in solidarity with him and to give him our full support. I remember the windscreen of my Lexus vehicle even got smashed at the time. How will Kennedy react if he were to be in the shoes of our colleague MP. The whole world will break loose. I’m amazed that he’s acting callously because he suspects the one involved is someone believed to be against the flagbearer, Nana Addo.” the livid lawmaker told host Fiifi Banson Wednesday.

The Ashanti Regional Police Command will today Wednesday, May, 5 arraign the Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Bernard Antwi Boasiako on charges of an assault of a public officer.

Wontumi was detained by the police following a case of assault leveled against him by the incumbent Member of Parliament for the Manhyia North constituency, Collins Amankwah.

He allegedly assaulted the MP and one other while observing the Limited Voter Registration exercise at a registration center named Nana Fodjour House in Krofrom in Kumasi last Sunday, May 1, 2016.
