The Assin Central lawmaker expressed concern over instances where people seek medical attention at facilities and end up being treated inhumanely, or completely ignored by healthcare providers posted at these facilities.
He also touched on instances of mediocre service provided by hotels, public utility providers, and airlines.
“The Ministry of Aviation must check all the airlines, the way they treat passengers. In one instance, I was grossly disrespected by one staff of one airline….in another, about 40 passengers got to their destination only to realise their luggage hadn’t arrived….we are not animals to be treated that way…..what kind of system is this?" Lamented Hon. Kennedy Agyapong.

Honorable Kennedy Agyapong went on to say that Ghanaians have an attitude problem. Compared to other countries abroad, Ghana service providers tend to treat customers as though they're doing them a favor.
"If you are being treated at a hotel outside Ghana, regardless of how small their pay is, they treat you with so much dignity, it’s different in Ghana, they think they are doing you a favor when they are serving you..." he said.
