Maverick politician and legislator for the Assin North Constituency, Kennedy Agyapong, has attributed laziness on the part of Ghanaian youths to the rise in fraud cases.
Kennedy Agyapong argues that the spate of money-doublers, money rituals and crime rates are all due to the “get-rich-quick” mentality of many Ghanaian youngsters.
“You thing manna will come from heaven, if Agradaa can double money will she be in that small corner?. If you look at the number of people going for sika gari, it’s worrying. You see our mindset? We need to change it,” he revealed.
