Member of Parliament(P) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong says some members of his party with Presidential ambition are doing whatever it takes to see him incarcerated because they think he has a similar ambition.
According to him, such people have been calling his lawyer to leave the case so that he is jailed to disqualify him from contesting for Presidency.
“All those calling my lawyer that I should be left alone to be jailed, the case is not over so I am not going to say anything about it. If you are not brave you won’t support the NPP because I have NPP members calling my lawyer to ask him why he won’t leave me so I get jailed,” he stated on NET2 TV monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
But to him, he is not interested in any Presidential bid but to run his business and make more money to enjoy life and also create opportunities for the teeming youth in the country.
He said what he wants are contracts and opportunities made available to him by the Political Party so he can make more money and not a political position.
The businessman made this known when he was speaking on the Seat Show on Accra-based Net2TV.
“They are saying I want to become president, me Kennedy Agyapong. Just give me work so I can make some cash and open industries. If you know the industries I am putting up, I want be president of Tema (industrial area) instead. Those who want to be president are there, just give me contracts, case closed. Stop the envy and asking that I be jailed, for contempt how long will I even be jailed for?” the Assin MP quizzed.
