The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer candidate and Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has been trending on Twitter as a result of comments he made during one of his campaigns.
Hon. Kennedy Agyapong criticized some unnamed officials in the Akufo-Addo administration for mismanaging the economy while speaking to party delegates in Kintampo East over the weekend.
“It is only in Ghana that you can take the economy to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and still call yourself a strategist. If the NPP doesn’t do a clean campaign, there will always be trouble because I will respond to every allegation made against me,’’ he warned.
“When we were taking over power, the dollar was GH4, today, one dollar is GH12, and you still call yourself a strategist. Excuse me! A strategist indeed. The youth will graduate from universities and will not have any work to do, and you are still calling yourself a strategist. I employ over 1,000 individuals every month. Between you and I, who is a strategist?’’ he quizzed.
This comment has sparked so many controversies on social media, as some Ghanaians are hailing him for being upfront about the current economic state of the country while others are bashing him for betraying his own party.
