The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has criticized the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, describing him as an irresponsible leader who could not pay electricity bills.
According to the Assin Central legislator, Mr. Nketia owes him $200 as money he borrowed to pay his electricity bills while serving as MP for the Wenchi West Constituency and has since not paid him back.
Mr. Agyapong said, he has since lost respect for Asiedu Nketia.
Mr. Agyapong was speaking in Bawku at the campaign launch of NPP parliamentary candidate for Bawku central constituency Gabiana Abugri.
“In Ghana politics is cheap and in this country we listen to Asiedu Nketia, a man who could not even pay his electricity bills. Asiedu Nketia he owes me $200 up to now he hasn’t paid, I don’t know if he is going to pay me tomorrow.
I don’t respect Asiedu Nketia because he owes me and cannot pay or he should pay me and I will stop talking about it.”
“When Mr. Nketia comes to Bawku, ask him that, when he was a parliamentarian, he came to me(Kennedy Agyapong) that he was disconnected for owing electricity bills and borrowed $200 to offset the debt but has since not paid when is he going to pay?”
Mr. Agyapong emphasized that, the character of people like Asiedu Nketia and cohort of the NDC do not deserve to be retained in office.
He urged the constituents of Bawku central to vote massively for Gabiana Abugri to become MP and Nana Addo as president to bring change and prosperity to the people of Bawku.
