- The Assin Central MP has warned President Akufo-Addo of a 2020 election defeat if he maintains NDC members in government institutions
- He argued that there are NPP supporters who need the jobs that are still being held by opposition members in the government.
- He has also tasked the vice-president to begin fixing the economy as the time for excuses is over
Businessman and the member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene-Agyapong has warned the president he could lose votes in the next election period if he did not remove all members of the opposition NDC holding positions in his government.
According to him, these opposition members still working in government institutions could attempt to comprise the government's development, hence the need to dismiss all of them.
Mr. Agyapong noted that there were supporters of the NPP who had worked exceptionally and now felt unappreciated, while they should rather be occupying the said positions in government.
Mr. Agyapong was speaking on Adom FM's Badwam on Tuesday when he said, "the NDC are just lucky to have a fine gentleman like Nana Addo who has not even sacked anyone because he has been too gentle on them and that’s why I have a problem with him, because he is always talking about Ghana first. Even with that, the NDC are still ungrateful.
I will go to him and beg him to sack all the NDC men at post so the NPP guys can also work else the NPP will lose the 2020 general elections. There are people who always come to me, these party faithful who will not stop lamenting and want to be fixed somewhere and so Nana Addo needs to act fast. We need to fire all the NDC men for them to feel the pinch."
The Assin Central MP further challenged Vice President Bawumia to deliver on the NPP's promise to fix Ghana's economy.
He argued that the citizenry had given their votes and now it was time for the NPP to hold off giving excuses and begin work on tackling unemployment and developing the economy.
He made these remarks in response to the Finance Minister, Ken Offori Attah's statements about alleged leakages in the revenue mobilization system.
Mr. Offori Attah however assured that an investigation is ongoing to determine where these leakages occurs, while noting that the leakages are not necessarily caused by the politicians but rather the ordinary citizen.
