New Patriotic Party firebrand and Assin central Member of Parliament Kennedy Agyapong has hinted that he will quit being a politician and a member of the NPP citing the incessant embarrassment and disgrace visited upon him as a result of the spirited defense for the party.
The outspoken Assin Central legislator noted that he will not seek re-election due to how his party the NPP is embarrassing him. He made this confession on Oman Fm a local radio station owned by the firebrand MP.
“Anybody who is at the NPP headquarters lobbying to be a Minister if I am not an MP he cannot run me down. Nobody can also come and ask me to leave my house at 7am and go to defend the party on radio or television. Politics is not the only means through which one can make it. I am tired of NPP and the embarrassments.”
“I have decided not to contest again because of NPP and their conduct. The way they are using me and making me to face all sorts of embarrassment I do not think I can continue. You can record and go and play to them. Where I have lived my life up to and they are treating me, I am calling it quits,” Mr. Agyapong stated.
Meanwhile, Mr. Agyapong has revealed that, some big men within the party asked him to destroy renowned investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas. Mr. Agyapong in the wake of the Number 12 documentary, which exposed massive corruption at the Ghana Football Association leading to the resignation of GFA President Kwasi Nyantakyi, attacked Anas on several occasions calling him a fraud and a criminal person.
He went to further to release some pictures he claimed were that of the investigative journalist.
“After mounting a spirited defense for the party against undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, I was disgraced in parliament like a child,” the fuming Assin Central lawmaker said.
