Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has revealed that despite being approached by the speaker of parliament, Professor Aaron Mike Ocquaye to help his son win, he decided to support Adwoa Safo.
According to him, he decided not to support any candidate in the just-ended New Patriotic Party's (NPP) primaries, which saw Adwoa Safo emerge victoriously.
Speaking in an interview with Atinka TV, the maverick politician said he changed his mind to be neutral after the speaker asked for his support to make Adwoa Safo lose to his son.
According to Kennedy, Adwoa Safo who is the mother of two of his 22 children is one of the women who independently take care of his kids without bothering him with expenses.

"I have two kids with Adwoa. She is so responsible... How do I go against a woman I have kids with. I don't know if he thinks I wash my face upwards," he said.
He further revealed that prior to the elections, Adwoa was constantly in touch with him seeking his support since she feared she would lose her seat.
Kennedy Agyapong added that his children also mounted a lot of pressure on him to help their mother retain her seat.
Agyapong revealed that the request by the speaker of parliament got him wondering why the speaker would ask for his support to make the mother of his kids lose her seat.
