Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has stated that he never went to university up until 1993.
According to the outspoken politician, at that time, he did not see the need to attend university because he was making lots of money.
Kennedy Agyapong added that he changed his mind and went to the university in 1993 after the former flagbearer for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), told him in 1992 that he (Ken Agyapong) was going to a strong businessman.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, Kennedy Agyapong recounted that during the 1992 general elections then flagbearer for the NPP Prof. Albert Kwadwo Adu Boahen had called some party top shots to his airport residence where he was arranging his ministerial positions because he was sure he was going to win the elections.
Kennedy Agyapong said when it got to his turn, Prof. Adu Boahen tapped him on the shoulder and told him that he was going to be a strong businessman.
"When he got to me, he tapped me on the shoulder and said young man you are going to be a strong businessman. I didn't know what the man had seen in me. When he made that statement, I thought he had offended me. I thought he didn't give me a ministerial position because I had not attended university. After we lost the election in 1992, I decided that me too I will attend university," Kennedy Agyapong said in an interview on YFM.
He disclosed that Prof. Adu Boahen's comments motivated him to go attend Fordham University in the US in 1993.
