- Kennedy Agyapong has said media reports on his criticisms of the Akufo-Addo government are inaccurate
- He said his rants are simply advice to the presidency to ensure the government does not fail to deliver on its promises
The New Patriotic Party parliamentary representative for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene-Agyapong has debunked claims that he expressed disappointment in the Akufo-Addo administration's work in its first few months.
The MP has been on a rant against his government for some weeks now, throwing criticisms at various decisions being made.
At a delegates conference in Central Region, the MP has lamented the lack of attention to the Central Region in the president’s choice for certain positions in his government.
He jabbed the presidency, for failing to select at least one person from the Central Region for one of the Ambassadorial roles.
However, Mr. Agyapong speaking on Adom TV’s morning show on Tuesday said his recent statements in the media were just the echoes of the concerns of their party members at the grassroots.
“Yes, I made some remarks in the Central Region but I voiced out the frustrations and worries of the supporters who cannot speak for themselves.
I’m only advising Nana Addo not to listen to bad advice from some elements of the party but act on his own as the President of the country. People should stop misquoting me and tagging me as a bad person because I never said I’m disappointed in Nana Addo,” he said.
According to Mr. Agyapong, his remarks have no ulterior motives, other than to ensure the Akufo-Addo administration does not disappoint the citizenry on the promises made during their campaign.
