Kennedy Ohene Agyapong who represents Assin Central in Parliament for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has for the first time opened up about his pending contempt case in court.
Whiles speaking on The Seat Show on his TV Station, Net2 TV, on Wednesday, October 14, 2020, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong revealed that some members of his own political party, NPP, have made calls to his lawyer, Kwame Gyan, impressing on him to leave him to his fate.
All those calling my lawyer that I should be left alone to be jailed, the case is not over so I am not going to say anything about it. If you are not brave you won’t support the NPP because I have NPP members calling my lawyer to ask him why he won’t leave me so I get jailed.
Making reference to a bible quotation, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong stated that he is not surprised at all for being heavily criticised by his own party members.
The bible says that any leader who is not criticized by some of his people means that he is not doing something right. So obviously you will get people who don’t like you.
The Honourable Member of Parliament for Assin Central also revealed the reason behind his own NPP members becoming envious of him being that they fear he may be nurturing a presidential ambition. Hon. Kennedy Agyapong further mentioned that he rather wants to be the president of Tema industrial Area.
They are saying I want to become president, me Kennedy Agyapong. Just give me work so I can make some cash and open industries. If you know the industries I am putting up, I want be president of Tema (industrial area) instead. Those who want to be president are there, just give me contracts, case closed. Stop the envy and asking that I be jailed, for contempt how long will I even be jailed for?
