Kennedy Agyapong, the member of parliament for Assin Central, has said that John Boadu, the acting general secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), declined to be considered for a ministerial post by President Nana Akufo-Addo.
Speaking on Adom TV, Agyapong said he and Baodu were chosen represent the Assin block in the party but both of them turned the offer down.
“I don’t want to be a minister, we wanted to present John Boadu (to the president) but he also turned the offer down…I have seen that some of our leaders want some of us to be ministers but we turned the offer down…,” he said.
In the same interview, Agyapong said that he felt pity for Akufo-Addo because of the huge pressure that was on him from people looking to get contracts and political appointments.
He said when he visits Akufo-Addo at home, he finds that people who ahead of the 2016 election turned down pleas for them to contribute to the NPP's campaign are now trooping to the president's residence and office to lobby for appointments and contracts.
“When I get to Nana Addo’s residence and Flagstaff House and I take a look at the huge numbers of persons who are there lobbying for positions, I begin to wonder…I pity Nana Akufo-Addo," he said.
