Maverick politician and Member of Parliament for Assin Central in the Central Region, Keneddy Ohene Agyepong has accused President Akufo-Addo of sidelining the Central Region in his appointments of persons into public office.

According to him, the worst of such bad treatment is the recent appointment of Ambassadors with no person appointed from the Central Region.

Hon. Ken Agyapong who said this while adressing the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Central Regional Delegates Conference on Sunday, called on the people of the region to rise up and fight for what is due them as they played a huge role in realising the party’s victory in the last elections.

“If we don’t speak up and say the truth the NPP will suffer. We secured 19 seats in this region during December 2016 election, the party’s reason for choosing this region for the upcoming National Delegates Conferenec is the fact that this area played a key role in ensuring victory. But you see, when it came to making 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.

“Ask these MPs seated here, their names were collected with the promise to appoint them to boards of state institutions, they are here, asked any of them if they have had any such positions. The MPs have been neglected, if you’re not a minister then forget it, that is NPP for you. So party supporters must go easy on demands from MPs as they don’t hold any position. It is not easy for MPs at all. 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.”

Hon. Ken Agyapong urged the NPP he party to stop playing to the whims and caprices of the opposition NDC as they are behind the challenge the government is facing including the BOST contaminated fuel saga.

The Managing Director of the Company, he says is under attack because he kicked against selling the contaminated fuel to NDC functionaries at a cheaper price after such persons had orchestrated the contamination through their boys working at the company.

That, he said had been the practice under the NDC when they were in power as they intentionally switch valves to contaminate the fuel and sell it to themselves.

“The practice was that NDC intentionally caused the fuel they imported to be mixed with diesel by switching valves at the site and turn round to declare it contaminated thereby selling it to themselves at cheaper prices.

“Between February 2015 and February 6, 2016 , there were 49 transactions of contaminated fuel at BOST which NDC sold to themselves at cheap prices and because the new Managing director stood his ground not to sell it to them at that ridiculous prices, the NDC guys set a trap for him and NPP is also falling for it blindly,” Hon. Ken Agyapong stated.

Ghanaians HURT truth. Now that Akuffo Addo has become the president those he is surrounding himself with must be WATCHFUL before they go into opposition again. Ken maybe something else BUT does not sugarcoat things to suit the greedy folks in NPP. Supporters of NPP REMEMBER angry NDC join forces to help Akuffo Addo win the elections so be mindful & do not get piss off when Ken Agyepong criticize the party.He means well not those that are hand picked & have decided to bury their heads in sand & pretend Ken is trouble maker for NPP.

Now this guy is really getting on our nerves..Can he learn nothing from others?Have you ever heard an NDC financier bragging and shooting his mouth off about what he did for his party.This guy is just too un- couth.Don't they have people who also put their money into the party's coffers? Why does this man talk so much? I'e never seen or heard him talk on the floor of parliament,yet he's all over the radio stations berating people insulting people threatening to bring own an entire political structure.Kennedy Agyepong does not know everything.Already some louts in the NDC are saying that he is the de-facto president of Ghana. How does he feel when he hears such comments?He exposes his true nature when he throws tantrums about not been given a contract.4 years is long enough to get a contract so this guy should better pipe down We are disappointed that nobody is calling him to order.

It's guys like Mills who helped to sink Ghana more! Why do you think there's no development, or that the country is stagnant? When people vow to lead by example and work as demanded through work exigencies, that must be followed through. So we understand that when they steal, pilfer, desecrate, undermine development efforts, they must face retribution as constitution stipulates it. What's the use of the law if it's not applied? Mills wasn't a smart leader, like all others who refuse to lead, so to speak.
 
Name: ADDAE
YOU THINK JAILING NDC FUNCTIONARIES OR WITCH HUNTING THEM MEANS NPP HAS SUCCEEDED AS A GOVT. WHEN ATTA MILLS CAME IN 2009, HE REFUSED THAT NOBODY SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED EVEN AGAINST PRESSURE FROM RAWLINGS,YET ALMOST 10 YEARS DOWN THE LINE THIS IS HOW A PARTY OR GOVT THINKS. YOU THINK THAT THERE WERE NO CORRUPT CASES IN 2009 AFTER THE NPP LOST POWER? PLEASE, NPP GOVT DON'T DRAW US BACK. THIS IS NOT THE TYPE OF DEMOCRACY GHANAIANS NEED.

Keep saying the truth. How can you appoint Edward mahama, and ignore most people in the region who supported the party to win. Even Ken agyepong could have been ambassador at large. Anyway Nana addo himself says he is only looking for one term the rest is up to barwumia and Co and I am sure Ken would frustrate his effort to succeed Nana addo.
