Following a recent outburst by the Assin MP, Kennedy Agyapong regarding the North Tongu Member of Parliament (MP), Okudzeto Ablakwa ”coming to him for money”.
The latter has taken to his social media page to respond to what seems as a malicious attempt to malign the MP for North Tongu on his constant advocacy for President Akufo-Addo to stop renting Private Jets.
Mr. Okudzeto Ablakwa expressed no shock as he believes Kennedy Agyapong only likes to attack the messenger and not to address the substantive message.
“My attention has been drawn to an archaic, preposterous and ad hominem tactic of Kennedy Agyapong seeking to malign the messenger as he cannot deal with the message.
Kennedy Agyapong knows, if he has any modicum of conscience, that he shamelessly peddled blatant falsehood because I have never received a farthing or pesewa from him neither did I ever go to the House of Parliament to solicit any form of assistance when I run for and won the Presidency of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) in 2005.
These devious concoctions and vicious attacks on my person would not deter me from carrying out my constitutional mandate of oversight as Member of Parliament duly elected by the beloved people of North Tongu.
I would only stop criticizing President Akufo-Addo’s unconscionable profligacy if he stops the US$14,000 an hour wasteful charters when Ghana’s Presidential Jet remains in pristine condition.
After all, didn’t the president pledge to protect the public purse?In any case, even though Kennedy Agyapong’s claims are outright fabrications, what kind of adult supports vulnerable students and uses that against them later in life?
Like many Ghanaians, I do extend charity to the vulnerable including students and I cannot imagine that I would ever use that against them.As adults, let’s offer a better example to the youth of our country.”
National Security Reacts:
Meanwhile, Ghana’s National Security has shot down any request for the cost of the President’s travels in recent times, levelling it as a threat to National Security, and that has gotten the Minority in Parliament, and some Civil Society Organizations in limbo, since record has it that, details of the cost of the President’s travels in 2019 was made known to Parliament.
