Controversial Ghanaian politician, Kennedy Agyapong, has indicated that politicians from the North don’t help their people.
The Member of Parliament for Assin Central made this known in an interview with Net2 TV when he was condemning a call by Alhassan Suhuyini, NDC MP urging Northerners to vote for their ‘own Mahama.’
“In Mahama’s hometown Bole, they look after patients on a plywood with a drip on their hand and all. What has Mahama done for them? He and all his brothers, Ibrahim, Alfred, Energy, what did they do?” He quizzed.

“There is this lady running an NGO at Bole who is helping the community and she has gotten GIMPA law school but there is no one to help her. She is a Gonja.”
Kennedy Agyapong revealed he helped her pay part and he will meet her later to add the balance because she has whatsApped him the old receipt, recalling how he meets numerous talented Northerners who don’t get help from their ‘numerous big men scattered all over the place
“The Northerners must learn to help their people to get their loyalty,” he advised because according to him, “Northern politicians don’t help their people. You see, these Northerners, they don’t want to help the people so that they can continue to lord themselves over them,” he pointed out.
