Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has said he always feels sorry for President Akufo-Addo anytime he sets eyes on him.
The reason, Ken Agyapong speaking on Adom TV’s Bedwam said is as a result of the fact that persons who hitherto turned down offers to contribute towards the victory of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) are now trooping to his residence and office to lobby for appointments and contracts.
“When I get to Nana Addo’s residence and Flagstaff House and I take a look at the huge numbers of persons who are there lobbying for positions, I begin to wonder…I pity Nana Akufo-Addo…,” he said.
The people, Ken said include persons who turned down offers to help the party when they were in opposition.
“When I see the people, I remember what Ken Ofori Atta said some time ago when companies turned down our calls for them to help us buy vehicles, he said these people would be trooping after we have won power and indeed it has come to pass…,” he stated.
The huge numbers notwithstanding, Ken Agyapong called on President Akufo-Addo to always remember to consider ‘strong and loyal’ people who stood by him and the NPP when they were in distress.
He further urged the supporters of the party who feel neglected to exercise some level of restraint as the party would offer everyone work and also create the enabling conditions for people who would want to engage in private businesses to do so.
The NPP, he said are also working to block all the loopholes in the system especially the ones at the ports.
