The MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has said the female celebrities pushing the #fixthecountry campaign are broke, cheap slay queens.
According to him, these celebrities are frustrated because they are not getting money under the NPP government as the big men do not pay as their NDC counterparts do.
He explained that some of the celebrities were surviving because they had boyfriends and sugar daddies who were NDC members, however, when the party went into opposition, they have been found wanting.
Agyapong said the NPP has refused to spend money on those celebrities because the government is interested and focused on investing Ghana’s money in profitable ventures.
He made these comments according to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Peacefmonline.com.
The comments have triggered massive responses from fans who have criticised the MP.
Paa Qweysi described Agyapong’s words as stupid and childish:
real_paa_qweysi_6040: “This saying is very stupid and childish of Kennedy Agyapong considering the issue on the table.”
Sikap3dom chastised Agyapong:
sikap3dom: “Mr. MP this time we aren’t doing politics here, is about our life and future.”
Defreshkid called Agyapong’s comment “cheap damage control”:
defreshkidd: “Cheap damage control just deliver your promises you guys made to us!!”
Meanwhile, the #fixthecountry campaign started after the government increased petroleum products on May 1, 2021.
Following this, the government through the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), reduced the prices by 8 pesewas.
Some unhappy Ghanaians on Twitter have since been venting their anger over what they say is the failure on the part of successive administrations to improve the lives of the citizenry through the hashtag “Fixthecountry”.
Most celebrities, including Yvonne Nelson, Afia Odo, Lydia Forson, and the likes have all joined the campaign.
In sharp contrast, Kumawood actress Matilda Asare, says there is nothing to be fixed as everything is working well in Ghana.
