Legal practitioner Lawyer Maurice Ampaw has disclosed why he rejected the offer from former President John Agyekum Kufour to join politics.
According to Maurice Ampaw, he rejected the offer to join politics due to his high moral ethics. He disclosed that he is too truthful to lie as a politician.
“After the death of my father, president Kufour Nana Addo, many people came to his funeral at Kukurantumi in 1995, at that time president Kufour had won the primaries to contest J.J. Rawlings.
“So, president Kuffour asked me, is that my father J.D Ampaw? And I said yes and he asked me to join them…let the politicians do their politics because, for me, I don’t know how to invoke gods for evil intentions, I don’t like chaos, I’m not that type, and I don’t have that mentality,” he said.
While speaking in an episode of Mmra Ne Abrao Mu Nsem on Wontumi TV, Maurice Ampaw added that politics is a game filled with evil, falsehoods, and deception, and he thinks he would have lost his life if he had entered earlier.
“I realized that it wasn’t my call, if I had gone into it, I would have died early because most politicians are liars and for me, I also speak the truth always, so I decided to shun politics.”
