Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong has lambasted Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for “allowing the Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta to bully him”, a situation he said has messed up the country’s economy.
The businessman and lawmaker who is seeking to contest the flagbearer race of the governing New Patriotic Party is heard in an audio lamenting to a group of people believed to be party members, how the bad management of Ghana’s economy by the government has made him lose a whopping $12 million between March to August this year alone.
In the audio, which is circulating on social media, Agyapong accused Bawumia of playing propaganda with the economy, saying he misled Ghanaians with his sweet-talking to kick the John Mahama-led National Democratic Congress out of power only for his government to plunge the country into severe hardship.
“What message do you want to give to Ghanaians again? Let me tell you; I’m telling you this straight; I’m saying all these things because of [something]…from March this year to August this year, through the exchange rate, I lost $12 million,” Kennedy Agyapong is heard saying in the audio.
He is calling for new faces to lead the NPP into the 2024 presidential election because the current team the helm of the country’s affairs has disappointed Ghanaians and the party.
