Maverick politician and Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has hinted on why he has no intentions of vying for the position of the president of Ghana.
Kennedy Agyapong said the office of the presidency in Ghana comes with so much pressure.
“I am a politician, a Member of Parliament and I am ok with that but I am not interested in becoming a president. Of course I can do the job, but I’m just not into it. I prefer being a business man, I don’t want to grow old too fast. I want to be myself, a very good business man.”
According to the ‘loudmouthed’ politician who has generated a lot of controversies in the country through comments and allegations of corruption particularly against some government officials at the presidency, he would rather focus on growing his businesses than serving as the country’s president.
Kennedy Agyapong said this during a cooking show dubbed 'Dinning with Cooks and Braggarts' hosted by pretty actress Yvonne Okoro.
He also said he decided to go into politics just to help the vulnerable in society.
“I came back to Ghana, went to my village and everybody was asking for a favor. I was asking how I was going to render or give these favors out, so I had an opinion that I could represent these people and speak for them. That is how I went in to politics and I think I have been doing just that,” Kennedy Agyapong said.
Aside from being a Member of Parliament, the law maker is believed to own some companies including Ash, Oman and Spice FM, Gold Coin Communications, Imperial World Business Limited, Net 2 Television and the National Newspaper.
Kennedy Agyapong has however urged the public to trust their leaders and not underestimate the politicians representing them.
