- Kennedy Agyapong says NPP has sidelined the people of Central Region in his appointment
- He claims the party is yet to witness more troubles if men of integrity doesn't rise up
The unstoppable Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has charged Central Regional members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), to rise up and demand what the region deserves from the Akufo-Addo administration.
According to him, the NPP government has turned its back against party members in the region, few months after helped in achieving a resounding victory in 2016 election.
Speaking at the Central Regional Delegates Conference on Sunday, the outspoken politician revealed that, President Akufo-Addo has succeeded in appointing ambassadors across all the regions, neglecting central region.
He also insisted that, Members of Parliament from the region have also been sidelined in Akufo-Addo government, except for the few ones who are State Ministers.
“If we don’t speak up the truth the NPP will suffer, we secured 19 seats in this region during December 2016 election. But you see, when it came to appointments see how it’s been done. Don’t let us be afraid to speak the truth which will help the party stay on the right course,” he charged party sympathizers.
The MP also disclosed that, some names of MPs from the region were listed to be appointed as board of directors but they have since been dropped due to some strange reasons.
The maverick legislator lamented that, the NPP is yet to witness the worst of its side, if men of integrity doesn’t rise up to speak against all forms of injustices emerging from leadership.
“Ask these MPs seated here, their names were collected with the promise to appoint them to boards of institutions. The MPs have been neglected, if you’re not a minister then forget it that is NPP for you. But if we’re able to speak such truths for our mistakes to be corrected, then it will be easy for us to win 2020, but when we remain quiet then we’re doomed”, he decried.
