- Kennedy Agyapong has rendered an apology to the spokesperson of the Ghana Armed Forces
- The NPP firebrand labelled Col. Aggrey as a fool for saying the army recruits on merit and not on the whims and caprices from politicians
Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kenneday Agyapong, has apologized to the spokesperson of the Ghana Armed Forces, Colonel Aggrey for referring to him as a 'fool'.
The maverick MP took the Army PRO to the cleaners following comments he made about their mode of recruitment.
Mr. Agyapong had earlier claimed that he would “make noise” if his constituents are not enrolled into the army, further boasting that he got so many people into the Police Service during their recruitment.
However, in a sharp riposte Col. Aggrey shot down the MP’s allegations, insisting the Army does not recruit based on political referrals.
The lawmaker, though, took offence to the Army spokesperson’s comments and described him as 'foolish' and 'stupid'.
Speaking on Oman FM, Mr. Agyapong said: “He (Col. Aggrey) is a fool….if he knew what was going on in the military, he wouldn’t be going round speaking nonsense that he is a professional and that I can make all the noise.
Are you my mate? If my people are not recruited in the military so what? Do you know how many people I have employed in Ghana? If he likes let him retire and come to me, I’ll give him a job to do. What work does he have to do if he leaves the military now? He can only be a security guard, useless,” he fumed.
The Assin Central MP has, however, now made a U-turn to apologise to the Army PRO, saying he is sorry for his earlier utterances.
“I am sorry… Minister had called me… My response was hot… I am sorry. I apologize,” Mr. Agyapong said following talks with the Defense Minister, Dominic Nitiwul and other leading members of the Ghana Armed Forces.
