MP Kennedy Agyapong of Assin Central fame has admonished Ghana’s President-elect in the person of Akufo Addo to reward Ashantis for saving him.
He said but for their massive votes, the government will be exiting power in the just ended general elections.
The cantankerous legislator in the studios of Net2 Tv said the president has to make sure most Ashantis get appointments in his next government as reward for their loyalty.
“I congratulate the people of the Ashanti Region, if it were not for them the NPP would have probably suffered defeat. Akufo Addo should give them a lot of ministerial appointments and more development should go there.
“Mahama was making a bogus argument that he has won 10 regions, only the Ashanti Region gave the NPP over 1,142,000 which cancelled the votes garnered by the NDC in almost 7 regions…I mean the votes from just one region cancelled that huge number of NDC votes. So I give the Ashanti Region a huge standing ovation.
“Some areas in Ghana are ungrateful, look at Oti, this government made the area a region but they voted against the NPP. We should be politically skewed that we maintain our stronghold first before you look for others.”
On records, NPP’s Akufo Addo secured a second term in office after winning the election with 51.30% of the total votes cast.
However, Mahama and the NDC have rejected the results of the polls, describing it as flawed and fabricated.
