President Akufo-Addo has said that attacks against his government by the Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP) Kennedy Agyapong do not bother him.
According to him, having been in the same political party with the maverick politician, he is aware of his nature and has gotten used to it.
“Regarding Kennedy Agyapong’s comments, I am not surprised at where he is going. I have been in the same party with Ken for many years and so I understand him and we know ourselves very well.
“His comments do not irritate me, we can have different views on different matters and that is fine, but the statement on the appointments from the Central region, I will not accept because I don’t believe it is true,” the President told the media at his maiden encounter with journalists in Accra Tuesday.
Mr Agyapong, who is a major financier of the party, has accused the Akufo-Addo administration of sidelining him by not awarding him any contracts despite his contribution to the New Patriotic Party’s electoral victory.
He claims the government is rather awarding contracts to members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC). He has threatened on several occasions to expose how the NPP won power in the 2016 elections.
