The Asogli State Council has apologised for an invitation letter sent to Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong, following brouhaha over the rejection of his gifts at the 2022 Yam Festival.
The Asogli State Council grabbed headlines over the weekend after videos of the gifts from the popular MP being rejected hit the internet. Many felt the public rejection of the gifts from the MP was highly embarrassing.
Shortly after the incident, a letter hit online showing that the Asogli State Council did invite Mr Agyapong officially to the event, prompting concerns about why the MP was embarrassed.
In a letter explaining why Ken Agyapong’s gifts were rejected, the Asogli State Council said the MP had in the past made unfavourable comments against the paramount chief, Togbe Afede XIV.

YEN.com.gh reported in an earlier story that the Asogli State Council, led by Togbe Afede XIV, has opened up about why gifts presented by Assin Central MP were rejected during the 2022 Yam Festival.
A statement issued by the Council on Monday, September 12, 2022, explained that Mr Agyapong was prevented from officially donating to the festival because of several loose comments he had made in the past about revered paramount chief, Togbe Afede XIV.
The council also said these past comments by the maverick MP, who is aspiring to become president of Ghana, were unfitting for a legislator.
