The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agvyapong, according to reports available to YEN.com.gh, has bemoaned the depreciation of the cedi against other major currencies, indicating that it has affected his matrimonial bed.
Speaking on the matter earlier in the week on Adom TV, the MP noted that he was not pleased when similar problems persisted under the erstwhile government of John Mahama. He added that as a businessman, he was affected so much that he at times, lost appetite for food.
Agyapong was however not too pleased that Mahama had waded into the current issue of depreciation. The MP drew comparison of the pot calling the kettle black.
The controversial politician indicated that in 2013, he lost about GHC 25 million in an investment with Fidelity Bank, due to the depreciation of the cedi under Mahama.
Then the MP touched on how the current depreciation streak was affecting him, noting that he had at times, found it difficult to please his wife in bed.
“My wife has to tap me for long before I realise I have something to do with her,” he quipped.
Agyapong noted that he could not afford to play party loyalty even though his New Patriotic Party (NPP) are the ones in power. Business concerns seem to have trumped falling in line with party rhetoric.
The MP is the only notable voice in the NPP who has carved a niche of criticising his party's economic policies.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh noted that Assin Central lawmaker has concluded he is not going to campaign with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) before the general elections in 2020.
He was quoted as saying: “We went to Magazine and campaigned and that day the crowd that came out was just unimaginable but this time if you ask me to go there today, I will not go because we have disappointed them. I am telling you the truth."
