Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has responded to a distress call from a group of Ghanaians who are stranded in Lebanon.
A few days ago, a video went viral showing some Ghanaians - mostly women- pleading with the government to help them get back to Ghana from Lebanon.
The Ghanaians were seen standing in their numbers at the Ghanaian embassy in Lebanon saying they are going through hardship in that country and want to come back home.
According to these stranded Ghanaians, they were promised to be evacuated by the government to Ghana but for some weeks now they have not heard anything.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, Kennedy Agyapong said he has been touched by the plight of Ghanaians and has decided to donate $150,000 to help bring these stranded people back home.
Kennedy said in the video:
Look at where Ghanaians have reached. I feel sad for them, therefore, I am going to donate $150,000 to help them get back home.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Kennedy Agyapong stated he never went to university 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 flag-bearer for the New Patriotic Party, Albert Kwadwo Adu Boahen, told him in 1992 that he (Ken Agyapong) was going to a strong businessman.
