The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has reiterated his resolve to quit politics for good.
According to the maverick New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament , the NPP has disgraced and embarrassed him enough.
Hon. Kennedy Agyapong noted that there is too much hypocrisy within the NPP which he is tired of because some unseen hands which were scheming to embarrass him more.
He revealed that top party hierarchy members came to his house to beg him to ‘destroy’ investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
After mounting a spirited defense for the party against undercover investigations by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, I was disgraced in parliament like a child. I have had enough and I am quitting I am telling you in plain words,” Agyapong noted.
“Look at how the party is using me and eventually will disgrace me. I have had enough and I am quitting I am telling you in plain words. Before the Anas video came out, those who had the chance to preview it were alarmed and knew it will put the party in a bad light. They sent emissaries to my house at dawn to go and defend the party; thereafter they disgraced me in parliament.
“Anybody who is at the NPP headquarters lobbying to be a Minister if I am not an MP he cannot run me down. Nobody can also come and ask me to leave my house at 7am and go to defend the party on radio or television. Politics is not the only means through which one can make it. I am tired of NPP and the embarrassments,” he said.
