Just after his return from the United States of America, the Assin Central parliamentarian, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong is out with some allegations against the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC). On his weekly youth and career empowerment show, ‘The Attitude’, Kennedy Agyapong alleged that the NDC had deployed a grand scheme disguised in the #FixTheCountry protests to discredit the gains President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) have made in the country since it took over from the ‘shackles of impoverishment’ of the NDC.
He disclosed that the tactic and propaganda deployed by the NDC in recent times is exactly what they did to former President John Agyekum Kuffour in his second term. He mentioned that the NDC is notorious for employing deceit and causing disaffection among Ghanaians so they could have their way through power.
According to him, the outcome of their propaganda, should Ghanaians buy into it is a retrogression of what had been accomplished over the years. Kennedy Agyapong entreated Ghanaians, especially the youth not to be exploited for these political agendas, adding that the time they used to run these protests could be invested into something that better.
“You are following the NDC who are sponsoring this #FixTheCountry protests…what good can that bring? We have seen it before they did propaganda against President Kuffour…all the good things he did for this country they run it down for Mills, and then Mahama came to mess everything up.
“That time you wasted going round with people you don’t know their evil mindsets behind this #FixTheCountry demo, could have gotten you some money,” he mentioned.
The Assin Central legislator continued that the government is incapable of addressing every single need of the citizenry let alone fix the country at a go. He argued that until Ghanaians re-orient themselves to work independently without any expectation of government’s support, there will be great transformation in the country.
Kennedy Agyapong stressed that it is characteristic of poorer people to depend on government for everything.
“If a population of over 30 million relies on government to feed everybody can there be enough to satisfy everyone’s need each day? So everywhere in the world, those who solely depend on the government becomes very poor.”
He indicated that the major setback in Ghana’s development is dishonesty, adding that the slower pace at which the nation is developing is mainly because of that human attitude.
“Why Ghana is not developing as fast as it should is because of dishonesty,” said Mr. Agyapong.
