Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has described the people of Assin as bad and naturally lazy.
He said most people in Assin do not have a positive mindsets and that does not auger well for the development of the area.
According to him, the main reason why the Assin areas are underdeveloped is due to the negative mindset of the people.
The controversial lawmaker further stated that the people are naturally lazy, explaining that he personally built a factory at his hometown Assin Dompim but the people of Assin didn’t patronize it.
Mr. Agyapong said rather than work at the factory to make money, the people stole the electrical panels on the machines which has left the machines useless.
The maverick MP was speaking in an interview with Assin Fosu based radio station Nkwa 88.1 FM.
“I cultivated about 598 acres of rice which stretched from Assin Dompim to Assin Asempaneye with 800 workers but at the end, they didn’t even harvest 1000 bags of rice,” he said.
“You see that the Assin Nyankomasi fruit factory has also not functioned efficiently. One of the farmers said when he brought his oranges the guys who loaded the produce were not paid so he’s sending his produce to others in Burkina Faso.”
He added: “If you don’t change your bad mindset, I can only doll out gifts to you as I always do but will never again invest heavily in infrastructure in this area.”
